Pink Floyd’s Dark Side Of The Moon Perfectly Syncs With Star Wars: The Force Awakens


(PCM) It was only a matter of time before someone would give this a try!  One Reddit user has come to the conclusion that Pink Floyd’s album “Dark Side Of The Moon” syncs up perfectly with the film “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” much the same as the album does with the legendary film “The Wizard Of Oz”.

Reddit user knnl says “Each act is roughly the same time as the album (~40 minutes). The music is always spot on for every scene, but the lyrics are what confirm that this was, indeed, [intentional].” In order to create the perfect sync knnl says you must start the album at the end of the movie’s crawl and the repeat album option must be checked in order for it to play continuously throughout the film. In the end the album should be played three times in a row for each of the film’s acts.

Some highlights of the sync include:

  • Kicking around on a piece of ground in your home town, waiting for someone or something to show you the way.
    All the lyrics of “Time” happens while the movie shows Rey’s daily struggles. The whole scene just fits with the song
  • Get away. I’m alright, Jack, keep your hands of my stack. Money, it’s a hit. Don’t give me that do goody-good bullsh*t. I’m in a high fidelity first class travelling set, I think i’ll buy me a lear jet
    During the “keep your hands off my stack”, Han grabs Kylo’s saber. He gets stabbed right at the end of the “Don’t give me that do goody-good bullsh*t”.
  • You raise the blade,You make the change, You rearrange ’till i’m sane
    Played just perfectly at the end of the film.

We can recall many trippy nights back in high school zoning out to “Darkside of the Rainbow” as we used to call it, so we can’t wait to make an attempt at “Darkside of the Force”!
