Electric Ladyland

Here with go with round two. The pre-ramble: a lot of people think Dark Side of the Moon by Pink Floyd was designed to sync up with The Wizard of Oz with amazing results. In an effort to see if any other albums might have the same sync-ing feeling, I'm touring various albums that I think might have a shot. This is the second stop on my tour of fifty albums to see what happens when we mix music and movies in ways that no deity ever intended. Each album is synced using the normal instructions to sync with Dark Side: i.e., wait for the third roar and kick it off. I will watch the entire movie with the album on repeat and make notes on what, if anything, is brought to light. I do this so you don't have to.

Second candidate? The sprawling epic monstrosity that is Jimi Hendrix's Electric Ladyland. I knew I wanted to try Hendrix with this and I was trying to figure out whether to do this one or Are You Experienced?. I finally went with this one because of its epic nature, as well as classics like "Voodoo Chile," "All Along the Watchtower," and "Burning of the Midnight Lamp." Trippy album + trippy movie should make for an amazing experience, yes? As always, I suggest you be familiar with both film and album, because I don't really have a way of, you know, doing this legally while you watch as well.

(Our first experiment, with Sgt. Pepper's, can be found here.)

So let's see what happens:

The Beatles: Sgt. Pepper

So there's a whole bunch of people who are convinced that Pink Floyd created Dark Side of the Moon so that it would sync up perfectly with The Wizard of Oz. And my thought was...why stop there? Why couldn't other albums have been created along these same lines, and they're just waiting for somebody to uncover the secret! Therefore, I'm going to watch The Wizard of Oz synced up with fifty albums and see what happens. Each album is synced using the normal instructions to sync with Dark Side: i.e., wait for the third roar and kick it off. I will watch the entire movie with the album on repeat and make notes on what, if anything, is brought to light.

Our first pick for this series of experiments is Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band by The Beatles. There are numerous reasons for this: first, it's the #1 album of all time. Second, it's my favorite album of all time. Third, between "Lucy in the Sky With Diamonds" and "Within You Without You," I think there's potential for...something. So I suggest you be familiar with both film and album, because I don't really have a way of, you know, doing this legally while you watch as well.

So let's see what happens:
