  • The song itself features no lyrics (although it contains parts of the conversation tapes that Pink Floyd recorded, as well a short snippet of Clare Torry's vocal performance on "The Great Gig In The Sky"), and consists of a series of sound effects. It leads into the first performance piece on the album, "Breathe". As a result, they are usually played together on the radio.
  • Noticeable sound effects include:
  • The heartbeat that is faintly heard at the beginning of the track is heard at the end of the album. This creates a segue between Speak to Me and Eclipse, making the album cycle
