The Dark Side of Oz – Pink Floyd’s Dark Side of the Moon Mashed Up With The Wizard of Oz
One of the greatest anomalies in existence is the paired up video of the 1939 film The Wizard of Oz with Pink Floyd’s Dark Side of the Moon. As odd as this sounds, it’s a fascinating trip that’ll surely blow anyone’s mind.
It’s not so much of an odd experience every now and then throughout the film, but the record fits with it exactly. It’s difficult to say without watching it, but trust me when I say how odd of an experience it is. The anomaly was discovered in the 1990s when people paired a VHS of The Wizard of Oz with the vinyl of Dark Side of the Moon.
Many interviewers have asked the members of Pink Floyd if they had any knowledge or intent to do this, but all of them vehemently deny it. Whether they’re lying or it’s the greatest aberration in existence, it’s quite remarkable either way.
Here are a few notable timestamps throughout the video:
1:57 Movie starts as the guitar slide begins
3:12: Look at his mouth
4:03: Dorthy balances on the fence as the lyrics say “balanced on the biggest wave”
4:09 On the run starts right as she falls

15:59 The singing part of great gig in the sky plays during the tornado scene
17:06 The singing slows down as she is unconscious
19:33 Money plays right as she is in oz, this also means that money was spent on making this color and also the first half of Dark Side of the Moon ends right as she gets to oz.
24:04 All start dancing right as the music gets heavy
27:37 The dancing starts right as the lyrics come in
