I don't know if I would call it Floydian or not, but Blade Runner Blues is an exquisitely moody piece, head and shoulders above the rest of these, and there are some great tracks here!  After that, I would go with Eloy, Camel, and King Crimson, in that order.

Went with PT. A lot of their earlier stuff owes much to Floyd. You could have included a bunch of RPWL tracks, especially from Trying to Kiss the Sun and World Through My Eyes. They too owe much to Floyd.

Voted Nimrodel because Starless is pure King Crimson, not Floydian. 
Mostly Autumn have a lot of more Floydian (and better) songs. 
I have never thought of Blade Runner Blues as Floydian, but effectively it can be.

However this poll would be a fantastic playlist.

I still disagree but I have really enjoyed the video, as every time I watch to it. Thanks.

Gandalf's Fist- "The Council of Anderson" and Airbag's "Never Coming Home" are PF tracks literally! 
On this list there are many but Anathema's "Emotional Winter" rules. Though Mostly Autumn's "The Night Sky" is perhaps the best of them all!

King Crimson's "Starless" gets my vote. It is one of my favourite songs period.

I never heard "The Night Sky." I've always loved "Half the Mountain." I'm listening to "The Night Sky" on Youtube now!! Thanks for the recommendation :-)

Starless, although I've never thought about it's "Floydian" track.
So, no Nektar songs? That's unthinkable!Shocked
Another amazing "Floydian" track not being on this list:
A Elbereth Gilthoniel
silivren penna míriel
o menel aglar elenath!
Na-chaered palan-díriel
o galadhremmin ennorath,
Fanuilos, le linnathon
nef aear, sí nef aearon!

I'm going to just crack without listening to all of them and vote for Vangelis' "Blade Runner Blues". What is it that you people say here? "It has a very special place for me" or something like that?

Try this youtube clip if you haven't found it:
 
 
If ever there a better combination of images and music, I've yet to hear/see it. The version of The Night Sky is slightly different to that on For all we Shared - it's off one of the compilations and is remixed and improved (hard to believe) and the guy who does the visuals is brilliant. Put it on before you go to bed and you'll be perfectly relaxed.

Eloy: Poseidon's Creation
Novalis: Sommerabend
Arena: The Hanging Tree
Mostly Autumn: Half the Mountain
