  • It begins with an iterative bass line before the vocals start. The first, gentler vocals are performed by Wright with Waters whispering, the following, harder refrain by Gilmour. The last two minutes feature for the first time a guitar solo from Gilmour in a Pink Floyd album, featuring his style and "trademark": he plays single notes and the sound of his guitar is treated through a chain of sound effects, such as distortion, echo, delay, and reverb.
  • The Placebo song "Taste in Men" has an opening bass guitar line that is remarkably similar to that of the one on "Let There Be More Light."
  • The line "As Lucy in the sky" is a direct reference to the song "Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds" by The Beatles.
