Complete twaddle. For starters, they're two very different lengths (42 vs 102 minutes). Are we supposed to play the record 2.4 times?
Back in the day, my buddies and i got really stoned and watched white noise on the TV -- jammed between stations, when you could do that -- and the random movements on the screen lined up perfectly with our own bodily actions. Fantastic! It worked even better on acid.
It would be more amazing if a stoned participant DIDN'T see remarkable "coincidences" in the DSOTM/WOO silliness. The same would work with literally any other movie.
All the members of Pink Floyd have laughed off any connection, and really, what reason would they have to lie about it? if they HAD planned it that way, and it was discovered many years later, and they 'fessed-up," they would be lauded as even cooler/hipper than they already are/were.
Complete twaddle. One might as well say the Earth is flat, or Paul is dead.
Plus.....he would have demanded royalties.....I believe The Floyd were talented enough that if they were to do a "soundtrack" over the rainbow....erm... Of the Wizard of Oz, it would be the full length if the movie, line up perfectly, AND offer Roger Waters sardonic wit-filled lyrics as the narration....
Roger's ego would have settled for nothing less!
Actually that is one of many reasons why we do know.They weren't strangers to the nuanced architecture of film soundtracks . Before they hit big,Pink Floyd had a profitable reputation composing movie scores .
Who knows ?
I like to play the soundtrack of The Wizard of Oz while looking at The Dark Side of the Moon album cover.
