Welcome to our list of the Best “Wish You Were Here” Cover Songs ever. This song was released in September 1975 by the English rock band Pink Floyd, and was recorded over numerous sessions throughout the entire year at Abbey Road Studios in London.

Let’s begin by our journey watching the original “Wish You Were Here” by “Pink Floyd”. This was included in the band’s 9th studio album which also became pretty controversial due to the album’s theme which included criticism of the music business, alienation, and a tribute to founding member Syd Barrett, who left seven years earlier with deteriorating mental health.

Wish You Were Here Lyrics

So you think you can tell
Heaven from hell
Blue skies from pain
Can you tell a green field
From a cold steel rail, A smile from a veil?
Do you think you can tell?

Did they get you to trade
Your heroes for ghosts, Hot ashes for trees?
Hot air for a cool breeze?

Wish You Were Here Cover

Cold comfort for change?
Did you exchange a walk on part in the war
For a lead role in a cage?

How I wish, how I wish you were here
We’re just two lost souls
Swimming in a fish bowl
Year after year

Running over the same old ground
And how we found
The same old fears
Wish you were here

This boy is just so adorable to watch! He started singing at a very young age and 9 years old, at the time of this video. Such talented young man is just so hard to go unnoticed. He played his guitar perfectly (and other instruments) and sang this song as if he lived in the 70’s era. Watch how this boy did a cute and marvelous cover of “Wish You Were Here”.
