For those of you old enough to have fond memories of Pink Floyd's Dark Side of the Moon album syncing up with THE WIZARD OF OZ...
At about 1:16 - 1:17 Lily has a little jolt in her eyes when she is suddenly fully awake. Turn the audio off of I, Pet Goat II and at 1:16 start Peter
Gabriel's "Red Rain." The track I used is on my iTunes player and it's from the album "Hit" and is 5:39.
That's the coolest music syncronicity I've found so far.
For the more baked among you, try "Drunkship Lanterns" by The Mars Volta from Deloused at the Crematorium. It doesn't have quite the impact of Red
Rain, but it's pretty cool. What you do is start the loud first downbeat of the track just as the spotlight hits the goat box in the beginning. It's
pretty rockin' trippy with the video.
Also, I was toying with Tomorrow Never Knows by the Beatles. You have to put in on repeat because it isn't long enough for the video. I think I had a
decent go with it starting the track at about :59 deep in the video. I never got it right on, but I was trying to get the seagull sounds in the music
track to sync with the black birds in the video. Even without that sync up, it's pretty cool, you know "float downstream..."
I'll keep looking for the best music match. Right now, the Peter Gabriel is the bomb. Well, on second thought, the Mars Volta track really is cool
with the video especially if you get that first downbeat synced right when the spotlight first hits the goat-in-the-box --- if you get it right on,
then at the end of the video there is a drum beat along with a cymbal splash right on the capstone of the pyramid getting hit with the meteor. It's
pretty epic just for that, but the aggressive Mars Volta tempo and psychedelic style work well throughout the video.
I'll keep looking for the best, trippiest piece of music to go with the video. I know it's kind of warped to be into that but it is actually fun to
play around with because there is so much happening in the vid.
