  Echoes (Pink Floyd song) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In the second half of the "Echoes" interlude, the screams die down to become background noises under the sound of rooks, which were added to the music from a tape archive recording (as had been done for some of the band's earlier songs, including "Set the Controls for the Heart of the Sun").
The song, then entitled "The Return of the Son of Nothing", was first performed in public on April 22, 1971 with the unrevised 'planetary' lyrics.
The last time the song would be played by all four members of Pink Floyd was at the concert in Knebworth closing their 1975 world tour.

 scenepointblank: The Rapture - Echoes
Echoes opens with a new version of "Olio" backed by house drum machines and synth and "House of Jealous Lovers" which has already seen a fair deal of mainstream airplay is another refurbished track, appears on Echoes this time with a more club-worthy house feel than its original version (On the Insound Tour Support).
In a sense Echoes is one of the most complete albums that has been released this year because of the diversity in song format, yet cohesiveness in the overall package.
The rest of the songs have their moments of catchy, rhythmic disco-rock (which is why I can understand why other people like them), but there's nothing to make me really want to listen to this album repeatedly.

 Echoes by Pink Floyd Songfacts
I think the meaning of the song is as follows: It's the story of someone who has plunged into a deep depression, and spends his/her existence wandering a metaphorical labyrinth in a coral cave underwater, listening to echoes of normal life, which prompts him or her to start climbing toward the light.
And it still is. One thing is, I firstly got "Echoes part 1 and 2" from "Live at Pompei" album, or whatever it is, and it is MUCH BETTER than "Echoes" from "Meddle".

 Melanie Absolon
But although they (the 'I' and the song-text) are new in their reading or listening, they are never completely new, because like all song-texts, they are made up from elements that pre-exist them, and in that they have always 'happened or existed before' even if it as been in some other form.
As I said before it is impossible for me to describe this song adequately because the quality or sound of the voice, as being the trace or derivative of something lost - something that is lost but continually re-traced and re-presented in an incognitive form - is beyond signification.
It is a slow song with a slow but heavy rhythm, the percussive beat that punctuates it is laborious, and this beat is a voice in itself, in its 'there' (Da) and 'gone' (o-o-o-o) and its tired and painful repetition.
