Many know that Pink Floyd's 1973 album "The Dark Side of the Moon" syncs up perfectly to 1939's "The Wizard of Oz," especially when you've indulged in illegal narcotics (or so I hear). If you haven't tried it yet, and you live in Colorado or Washington, we'd really recommend it, maybe with a couple asada burritos and some Funyuns.

Last Friday, "Oz the Great and Powerful," meant to be the 1939 film's prequel, debuted to audiences nationwide. But Sam Raimi's $200+ million blockbuster isn't without its own album companion: Did you know that the movie syncs up perfectly to Coolio's 1995 album "Gangsta's Paradise"? Honest! And you thought it was made solely to complement the film "Dangerous Minds." Pssshhhh. I should have Michelle Pfeiffer kill you with her bare hands for that.

Let's check out some highlights.
