As the story goes... Set the "Dark Side of The Moon" CD to loop and wait. Start the DVD of "The Wizard of Oz - On the 3rd Lion roar of the MGM opening title start the CD!
Turn volume up on CD player...

001 - The 1st indicator that the sync is correct is when the transition from"Speak to Me" to "Breathe"  syncs with the fade in of Producer Mervin LeRoy.

002 - "leave, but don't leave me alone"... Auntie Em appears to say "leave" to Dorothy, and she does.

010 - Song Shift from "Breathe" to "On The Run" signals a scene change as well as a song change.

011 - Auntie Em shows up just as women chats away in the background of DSoTM track.

012 - The sound FX rumbling at the end of "On The Run" and the sound of distant thunder and birds in TWoOZ blends perfectly with the clouds and shafts of light.

013 - The Chimes in "Time" strike just as Elvira Gultch rides up on her bicycle and dismounts. Possible bicycle reference to Syd Barret's "Bike."

014 - Uncle Henry's paint brush seems to be ringing like a bell.

029 - SCENE CHANGE - Dorothy leaves just as "The Great Gig in the Sky" begins and runs through the entire twister scene. The "Twister Scene"one of the strongest scenes in the urban legend. David Gilmour's guitar, sounds almost like a warning siren.

030 - "I'm not frightened of dying" is heard in the background as the twister approaches.

031 - The drums kick in just as a tree gets uprooted and the scene is off...

032 - Clare Torry's wailing, keeps keeps with the mood and intensity of the twister scene and seems to display the emotions of Dorothy perfectly. Other sync cues worth mentioning are Dorothy stomping on the storm shelter doors to get in, the door flying off it's hinges,  pieces of furniture and appliances flying by the window and finally the strike on her head and the "Dream Sequence."

033 - SCENE CHANGE - The cash register sound in "Money"is heard as Dorothy opens the door to Oz, beginning the "Color = Money" metaphor. Clearly Oz is a very affluent place.
