At this point it's practically a law that during your high school and/or college years, you're required to sit down for at least one screening of The Wizard of Oz synched up to Pink Floyd's The Dark Side of the Moon album. Legend has it that the film and album freakishly align to form some kind of weird visual-and-audio experience that becomes more fascinating depending on how many drugs you're on at the time. For many of us growing up, however, the Dark Side of the Rainbow (as it's come to be known) could only be watched and listened to for those who had both a copy of Pink Floyd's album and The Wizard of Oz on DVD (or VHS). Then there were these crazy rules that differed depending on who was leading your screening. Some claim you need to push play on the album when the MGM lion first appears, while others prefer to push play on one of the lion's roars. Either way, now you don't need to worry about any of it because the Internet has done it for you.
Yup, now on YouTube is this full version of The Wizard of Oz synched up with Pink Floyd's The Dark Side of the Moon. See what all the crazy kids have been hyping up as far back as the mid-'90s, when the mainstream media picked up on it and began passing the word around like a... you get it. Have you always been curious to see whether there's any truth to all the drug-fueled claims that Pink Floyd's album, like, totally fits The Wizard of Oz like a glove, dude? Well then, turn down the lights, get yourself in the right (ahem) frame of mind, and have at it below. [via FirstShowing]
