I have been a fan of Floyd’s music since “The Wall” came out in 1979 and my fellow classmates chanting:”WE DON’T NEED NO EDUCATION…TEACHERS! LEAVE US KIDS ALONE!” – not really even knowing what the music was all about at the time.
Many years ago, I heard a rumor about Dark Side of the Moon lining up perfectly with The Wizard of Oz. I thought to myself: “Must be some really good weed!”.
When I first saw The Wizard of Oz synched up to the music of Pink Floyd’s Dark Side of the Moon, I was amazed to see the synchronicities that abounded over and over again. It was uncanny the imagery that lined up perfectly with the audio, not only in rhythm, but in message and meaning.
I actually own a DVD version entitled “Dark Side of the Rainbow” that plays 4 times through and still synchs up repeatedly on many different levels. On the DVD, you can actually pick when and where the synchronicities are with a full description of the events.
When I found the following video synched up to the sprawling epic of a track “Echoes”, once again by Pink Floyd, I realized something special was happening again.
Some think if Pink Floyd purposely did any synch’s to movies, it would be this one, as Stanley Kubrick asked to use some Pink Floyd songs in the movie, but they turned down the offer. Roger Waters later said it one of his biggest regrets. “Meddle”, which this song is from, came out 3 years after the movie.
