"Fearless" is the title of the third track on Meddle by Pink Floyd. The song's slow tempo and mellow acoustic sound bear similarities to some of the other tracks on the first side of the album. Roger Waters composed the song on guitar using an open tuning in G major that he learned from Syd Barrett. He plays the acoustic guitar parts on the studio recording, despite his job as the band's usual bassist. [1] Near the beginning and at the end of the song, a field recording of fans in Liverpool's Kop singing "You'll Never Walk Alone" is superimposed over the music. This Rodgers and Hammerstein song became the anthem of Liverpool F.C. after Gerry & the Pacemakers had a number-one hit with their recording. Roger Waters is in fact a staunch supporter of Arsenal F.C.. The song is almost regarded as an underground hit for Pink Floyd, because although it was not released as a single in the UK or played live by the band, it remains greatly favoured among hardcore fans. Its title is derived from a football (soccer) slang term for "awesome", which became a clich´┐Ż among the band's touring party.
