Republican presidential candidate John Kasich on Tuesday promised to make it a priority to reunite the rock band Pink Floyd if he wins his White House bid.

The morning after Kasich placed 8th in the Iowa caucus, host Alisyn Camerota ended her interview with the former Ohio governor by asking him to recall the "best concert ever."

"Pink Floyd's 'The Wall'," Kasich replied. "Roger Waters is a remarkable artist. And I saw 'The Wall' in Pittsburgh. It was absolutely incredible. I don't even have to think twice. It was the best."

"And if I'm president, I'm am going to once and for all try to reunite Pink Floyd to come together and play a couple of songs," he continued. "And since we have so much trouble in America with our finances, I'm going to start with a little song they created called 'Money'."

"That's better than 'Comfortably Numb'," Camerota agreed.

"We may be comfortably numb when we're done with New Hampshire," Kasich laughed.
