Echoes (Pink Floyd) Easter Egg - Echoes/ 2001 Final Scene Sync
(Webmaster's Note: This may be controversial, but it sounds more plausable to me than the Wizard of Oz sync with Dark Side of the Moon, so I'm posting it and you can decide for yourself.)
I was reading a book called "Saucerful of Secrets; a Pink Floyd Odyssey" (a must-have for any Floyd fan!), and it breifly discussed how when film maker Stanley Kubrick was making 2001, a Space Odyssey, he asked the band to contribute to a predominate part of the sound track. I don't know exactly what or how much he wanted them to do, but obviously, they turned him down. Roger Waters had been quotes as saying that this was one of the few career moves he ever made that he "truly regretted". 2001 was released in 1968, and Meddle was released in 1971. I'm syre you can do the math.
Now, getting to the point (finally), if you pay attention to times, you will see that Echoes is about 23 minutes long, as is the final scene of 2001. After Dave shuts down Hal and the screen goes black and a title screen comes up, you should have your cd player set with Echoes on pause. Right when the title fades, start the cd. The first "ding" in the song should correspond with the first image on the screen i believe, is the monolith. Once you get it matched up, sit back and enjoy the ride.
While i do enjoy the Dark Side/Wizard of Oz sync, it pales greatly in comparison with this one, at least in my opinion. good luck to you all!
