My personal favorite:
David Gilmour's guitar playing regularly makes me cream my pants.

Such, such, SUCH a very hard question you are asking here.
Because I am a big Pink Floyd fan, I know way too many songs that are so good that they could all be equally greatest songs. But to be honest, it's also a matter of taste, of course.
First of all: Your suggestion of "Comfortably Numb" is not bad because the beginning of the song always gives me chills (also whenever I hear different versions like an orchestra version of the song) and it feels so..."deep".
But what would I consider as my Pink Floyd favourite?
I guess it would be "One of these days" because it's so damn powerful, the build up is wonderful and when the loud part starts it gives me an eargasm...EVERYTIME. At least this would be one of the most powerful PF songs to me. I love the P.U.L.S.E. performance very much, so I post this here:
Of course I could list up other songs by Pink Floyd which would be their finest but, as I said, then I would have to write down at least a dozen of song titles here. And I think that's not what the topic is made for. But if you ask me what my favourite PF album is: It's "The Wall".

Either "Dogs" or "Echoes" for me, though it's been some time since I listened to their discography.

Unpopular opinion time: "On the Turning Away", with "Welcome to the Machine" a close second.

Oh my god... that's an insane question... especially for a group with such an eclectic and diverse discography...
I'm a huge fan of "On The Run" and "Have A Cigar", especially the former since I'm a big fan of analogue synths.
That being said, from the Gilmour era, I think "Sorrow" is a kickass tune but that era is almost its own thing...
