«Some guy with too much time on his hands had this idea of combining Wizard of Oz with Dark Side of the Moon.» — David Gilmour, Pink Floyd guitarist
«It's absolute nonsense. It has nothing to do with The Wizard of Oz. It was all based on The Sound of Music.» — Nick Mason, Pink Floyd drummer
You won't get a confession out of any member of the band, but the rumors have persisted the band: Could Pink Floyd, a band that had become proficient in film scoring by the early 1970s, who even interrupted their recording of Dark Side of the Moon to score another film, have synced their magnum opus to The Wizard of Oz? The scarecrow dances to «Brain Damage» and Dorothy wakes up just as Roger Waters opines, «home, home again/I like to be here when I can?»
Is it intentional? Who knows. But it sure is trippy. Discover these and other eerie moments of synchronicity for yourself as we present The Dark Side of the Rainbow.
