The Pink Floyd Movie Synchronizations

A Summary of the Results

If you are interested in finding the album/movie combinations on your own, read no further. In this section, the Pink Floyd albums are listed in chronological order with the corresponding movie. In some cases, only part of the movie lines up with the album, but in the majority of cases, the entire movie can be played to music. A description of each sync appears by clicking on its title. I find that playing a movie with the Closed Captioning helps to follow the movie plot and themes, while performing the sync.
