"Remember a Day" is a song by British psychedelic rock band Pink Floyd, and is featured on their second album, "A Saucerful of Secrets" (1968). The song, written and sung by Richard Wright, was recorded in October 1967 at De Lane Lea Studios in London. The sessions also yielded "Jugband Blues", "Vegetable Man", "In the Beechwoods" and "John Latham". It was performed in September 2008 by David Gilmour in memory of Wright.

Syd Barrett plays the slide guitar. Andrew King, Pink Floyd manager, recalls: "I remember De Lane Lea... we did 'Vegetable Man' there... and 'Remember a Day', which Syd does a guitar solo on".

A rare U.S. single release (Tower 440) contains edited mono versions of both songs. This single was never released in the UK.

Quotes

I was self-taught and my only group was Pink Floyd. I was not featured on 'Corporal Clegg' but did play on another track written byRichard Wright. I forget the title but it had a steel guitar in the background. There have been complications regarding the LP but it is now almost finished and should be issued by EMI in a few months. I now spend most of my time writing. - Syd Barrett 1968

2008 performance

On 23 September 2008, David Gilmour performed the song on a live broadcast of Later... with Jools Holland on BBC Two as a tribute to Richard Wright who had died eight days earlier. In an interview later on in the show, Gilmour had said that Wright had intended to perform with him that day, but had sent Gilmour an SMS message a couple of weeks before his death to advise him that he would not be well enough to attend. This was the first live performance of the song by any member of the band (although none of the original line-up for this song took part in the performance). Gilmour's band comprised Phil Manzanera, Guy Pratt, Jon Carin and Steve DiStanislao.
