I own the LP of Five Miles Out, with the childish dog on the back, and I noticed that on the track listing of the record it says "Mount Teide", but on the record itself it says "Mount Teidi". On my CD it's "Mount Teide". Which one is officially correct. NB: I always use "Mount Teide"

I guess the correct version is Teide. Mount Teide is a volcanic mountain at the centre of the island of Tenerife in the Canary Islands. At 3,718 m, it is the highest point on Spanish soil.

(From a Spanish Amarokian) Definitely it's Teide.

Depends if you mean the song or the mountain. Perhaps the mis-spelling was deliberate? Rick Wright invented his very own spelling for the mythological figure Sisyphos (called "sysyphus" on the Ummagumma LP).

And David "Gilmore" invented the deliberate misspelling of his name on the sleeve of A Saucerful of Secrets  :laugh: You're probably looking for significance where there is none. Typos occur all the time.

It probably depends on whether he's Mike Oldfield or Michael Oldfield. According to a recent post they're different people.  :p

I'm not so sure it's a typo. Rick could very well have spelled it wrong, thinking it's the right way to spell it. Or he thought he'd just changed the spelling for the hell of it, since everyone's forgotten about poor old Sisphpos by now. :D

I always thought "Sisyphos", or however it's spelt, was one of Pink Floyd's best tracks, along with "The Narrow Way". "Cymbaline" is another "misspelling" of course, if you take Shakespeare as canonical, which I don't. Completely irrelevant dig at Shakespeare: it's irritating that "crab" in his plays always refers to crab apples, and not the denizens of the deep we all love so much (Pinchy? . :D )

I have been thinking that, in general, the "generally accepted" spelling of many words is wrong, based on their meaning and possible true etymology. I have even thought that this has been intentional (by some "regulatory" "authorities" of language) in order for the naive speaker not to know what they really talk about, and, furthermore, not to be able to think productively and solve their everyday, simple, or more serious, problems.

BUT I DON'T REALLY KNOW
Just thoughts...

happy birthday, Lars
and happy Christmas to everyone

I agree. You see words originally spelt with a "K" owing to their Greek origin ending up spelt with a "C" because of some Romanizing or whatever influence.

Yes, happy birthday Lars (or should that be "Larc" (lunate sigma) becoming "Lark"?  :laugh:

It's Boxing Day in Australia, and it should be compulsory for people to spend the entire day listening to Mike Oldfield Boxed  :D
