Echoes and the Wizard of Oz

Has anyone ever heard the urban legend that if you play Echoes from the beginning of the Wizard of Oz (from one of the lion roars at the MGM logo) the music corresponds perfectly with what is going on in the film? My ex tried it and he says he was blown away with the coincidence.

I've heard that the soundtrack to Debbie Does Dallas corresponds exactly with the Wizard of Oz. Or is it the other way round? Sounds like an urban myth to me. 8)

Hehe!

Anyways, I'm here to correct myself. Echoes corresponds with the last part of 2001, Jupiter and Beyond. It's Dark Side of the Moon that corresponds with the Wizard of Oz, you start the record to the MGM lion's roars.

I've heard that urban legend thingy before but I've never been able to check if that one's true.... smiley - winkeye

Dark Side of the moon works if you start it on the second lion roar.

Yeah, apparently it works if you start it on any of the roars, but yeah I've heard the second one is most effective. Has anyone ever tried this? I'm still trying to track down a copy of Meddle so I can test the 2001 theory too.
