"Great Gig in the Sky" by Richard Wright and Clare Torry

Abbey Road Studios engineer Alan Parsons claimed to have heard EMI staff songwriter and session singer Clare Torry do a version of “Light My Fire” by The Doors on a cover album. Clare Torry disagreed insisting, “I don’t sound anything like Jim Morrison! I never sang ‘Light My Fire.’” What is known is that Parsons brought Torry in to sing on “The Great Gig in the Sky” during the recording sessions for “Dark Side of the Moon.”
