On the album, the preceding song, Empty Spaces, ends with an abrupt transition into Young Lust.
As with the other songs on The Wall, "Young Lust" tells a portion of the story of "Pink", the album's protagonist. Pink has become a rock star, and is always away from home as a result of his demanding lifestyle. He begins inviting groupies into his room between concerts, having not seen his wife in months.
The end of the song is part of a dialogue between Pink and a telephone operator; it is at this point he realises that his wife has been having an affair for some time, and his mental breakdown accelerates. The dialogue with the operator was the result of an arrangement co-producer James Guthrie made with his neighbour in London during the recording of the album in Los Angeles. He felt that the operator actually had to believe he'd caught his wife having an affair, and so didn't inform the operator she was being recorded.
In the film, the phone call where Pink finds out that his wife is cheating on him, occurs before "Young Lust" rather than at the end of it. The implications of the song are therefore slightly different: on the album he is not faithful to his wife while on his tour, making him a hypocrite when he becomes appalled to discover that she isn't faithful to him either, but in the film he only invites a groupie in when he has realized his wife does not love him anymore, which shows the character in a much more sympathetic light.
