Meddle" by the band Pink Floyd. While the song has an upbeat, jazzytempo, with a tropicalfeel to it, it also has the bouncy feel of mid to late 1960s music by groups such as The Kinksand The Beatles. Some have also compared the song to something from the pen of American songwriter Burt Bacharach.
While Roger Waters plays the acoustic guitar, "San Tropez" does include a short
slide guitarsolo from guitarist David Gilmourand an extended piano solo by keyboardist Rick Wright at the end.
Unlike the other tracks on "Meddle", "San Tropez" was not written collaboratively; instead,
Roger Waterswrote the piece himself and brought it into the studio already finished. This song is about a place called Saint-Tropez, a commune of the Var département in southern France located on the French Riviera. Known for its lovely surroundings, this song reflects an idealized vision of what a day in San Tropez might be like. [http://www.pinkfloyd-co.com/disco/meddle/meddle_trivia.html]
