  • This consists of a synth solo which segues into a guitar solo. The song used advanced effects for the time in the keyboard and guitar. The VCS 3 was fed through a long tape loop to create the rising and falling keyboard solo. Gilmour used 2 guitars to create the harmonizing guitar solo. This is known as "Breathe (Second Reprise)" because the song shares the same beat (albeit somewhat funkier and uptempo) as "Breathe". It has also the same chord sequence transposed a step lower from E to D minor. The title came from an answer given by a technician to questions put to him: "You can have it any color you like", a reference to Henry Ford's apocryphal description of the Model T: "You can have it any color you like, as long as it's black." This is notable because it's the only song during Waters' tenure that is credited only to Gilmour, Mason, and Wright.
