Yip, there's a John Lennon song called 'Mother', which I have immediately thought of when I heard The Wall. Also a song called 'Breathe' by Kylie Minogue (I think). I haven't heard it. And a song called 'Marooned' by somebody else, but I don't remember who-- I found it whilst searching for the PF song.
These don't really count but there's also 'Money (That's What I Want)' by Barrett Strong, covered by the Beatles, and 'Piggies' by the Beatles as well.
One Of These Days - Ten Years After Childhood's End - Iron Maiden Stay - David Bowie Time - Ben Folds Time - Tom Waits Dogs - The Who In The Flesh - Blondie Young Lust- Aerosmith Sorrow - Bad Religion Take It Back - Cream High Hopes - Frank Sinatra
That's all I can think of off the top of my head. I'm sure there's much more.
Some of these, such as Dogs (1968), Take It Back (1967), and High Hopes (1959) predate the Pink Floyd songs.

Echoes - Camel
Way less pointless than Pink Floyd's Echoes, which just dilly-dallys everywhere taking its sweet time about everything and nothing. Like just get to the point already!
The Lord is my shepherd, I shall not want, He makes me down to lie, Through pastures green he leadeth me the silent waters by, With bright knives he releaseth my soul, He maketh me to hang on hooks in high places, He converteth me to lamb cutlets, For lo, he hath great power and great hunger, When cometh the day we lowly ones, Through quiet reflection and great dedication, Master the art of karate.
Time- David Bowie Whenever someone talks about the concept of time I have an irresistible urge to sing both songs at once.
Hahahaa YES can't believe I haven't posted that one yet.
Actually, I'm ashamed to say that the Bowie one comes out of my mouth before the Floyd one does, simply because he actually yells 'TIME!' quite clearly in it, whilst the Floyd one is about time but hardly mentions it in a prominent way.
You know that I care what happens to you, And I know that you care for me too. So I don't feel alone, or the weight of the stone...
