The Dark Side of Oz

Wizard of Oz - Dark Side of the Moon

This is completely bizarre. This site claims that the music of Pink Floyd‘s majestic Dark Side Of the Moon album can be synched with the The Wizard of Oz movie. They call this effect the ‘Dark Side of the Rainbow’ (or the Dark Side of Oz). While the concept has been floating around for many years, it has plenty of critics, who think that the entire idea is laughable.

Snip from the site:

I’ve done this experiment quite a few times, and I’ll have to admit that there are a lot of coincidental events and themes. Although Pink Floyd has never admitted to doing such a thing (except Roger, who stays quiet when asked), there are just a few points that should be examined. I guess you’ll just have to come to your own conclusion. It’s just the way it is with this band. But one thing this experiment does do is bring the theme of The Dark Side to life, whether it was intentional or not. In other words, IT’S WORTH DOING! This page was brought to life to explore a possible theme for this great controversy. Hope you enjoy the show!
