Dark Side of Oz

This year is the 30th anniversary of the release of Dark Side of the Moon. Michele, as usual, has one of those great “remember what it felt like” posts about the album.

What I almost forgot was the eerily cool Dark Side of the Moon / Wizard of Oz synchronization. Cue up the album with the third roar of the MGM lion and be amazed.

Cool. Yet another thing to make my kids roll their eyes and go “Sure, Dad…”

[ Thanks for the reminder Peat! ]

    8-Tracks? Shoot, try explaining records, let alone 8-tracks!
    (I have a still functioning 8-track player in a free-standing jukebox style stereo, complete with AM/FM, Cassette and turntable. And a few old 8-track tapes that my wife still had when I scarfed the machine lo those many years ago….)

    I try explaining 78’s and victrolas to all you kiddies, but you never listen!!!! You kids! No respect for Tommy Dorsey and Bing Crosby, I tell ya!

    I heard about that Wizard of Oz thing. I was never into Pink Floyd, but I know some friends who tried that and it blew them away.

    My pastor has reasoned that it’s of the devil.

    Oh, I’m sure it’s the devils work. Most things are, aren’t they? I believe the fact that the Yankees always win is the work of the devil. The Playstation must be the devils work. Explain Britney Spears without involving the devil. Harry Potter, certainly. I think Martha Stewart IS the devil.
    Of course since I’m a card carrying heathen, none of this must have much credibility, but it sure sounded funny to me…

    i remember doing this in school. it is rather remarkable. certainly aided in its impact by copious amounts of alcohol. but amazing none the less.
