1.) Dark Side of the Rainbow – One of the most famous music conspiracies claims that if you play Pink Floyd’s The Dark Side of the Moon and The Wizard of Oz at the same time, they eerily sync together and complement each other. Though band members purport that it’s merely a coincidence, there is a strange relationship between the 1973 album and the 1939 film. Firstly, the now-famous album art of Dark Side – the dispersive prism – corresponds with the transition from black-and-white to Technicolor when Dorothy travels from Kansas to Oz. Secondly, noticeable music changes occur conveniently at important moments in the movie. Thirdly, thematic elements of both works coincide (e.g. the song “Brain Damage” plays while the scarecrow sings “If I Only Had a Brain”). There are many other weird pairings that happen when you begin playing Dark Side at precisely the third roar of the MGM lion at the start of The Wizard of Oz. See for yourself!
2.) Jim Morrison is still alive – Because the circumstances surrounding the death of Jim Morrison remain mysterious – no official autopsy, contradictory police reports, etc. – there are many who believe he is still alive. His wife, Pamela Courson, gave several differing accounts of what happened, including one where she takes responsibility for his death, and later Alain Ronay, a close friend of Morrison, confessed that he helped cover up the death scene. Considerable credence has been given to the theory that he’s still alive. Ray Manzarek, the keyboardist for the Doors at the time, said in an interview with the Huffington Post that it’s possible that Morrison faked his own death, “French death certificate, pay off an Algerian doctor a couple thousand dollars to sign it, put a hundred and fifty pounds of sand or bricks in a coffin and put it in the ground. It’s possible.” Morrison’s grave remained unmarked for a while at Pere’ La Chaise Cemetery, which is curious for a public figure, and no one saw Morrison’s body after he died, not even his family, nor were they informed of the impromptu funeral, which was only attended by five people. Manzarek told the Huffington Post that he received the news from the Doors’ manager:
Manager: “We buried a coffin, and Jim Morrison was in that coffin, and he’s now buried and dead.”
Ray Manzarek: “He’s dead, you buried him?”
Doors Manger: “Yes.”
Ray Manzarek: “How did he die?”
Doors Manager: “Well, it’s all in French, I can’t read it. Something about his heart stopped.”
Ray Manzarek: “Well, how did he look?”
Doors Manager: “I don’t know.”
Ray Manzarek: “What do you mean you don’t know?”
Doors Manger: “I never saw the body….it was a sealed coffin.”
Even more curious is the age at which Morrison died – 27. For those not familiar, there is a list of very famous musicians who died at 27 years-old often referred to as the 27 Club, including Jim Morrison, Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin, Kurt Cobain, Amy Winehouse, and many more who died under suspicious circumstances as well.
3.) Paul McCartney is dead – Hundreds of supposed clues to the supposed cover-up of Paul McCartney’s death can be found in Beatles’ lyrics and album art. For example, many claim that the lyric “cranberry sauce” at the end of “Strawberry Fields Forever” is actually “I buried Paul.” People often cite the cover of Abbey Road as well where each band member has their left foot forward except McCartney who has his right foot forward and is the only one not wearing shoes. It has been suggested that their choice of clothing symbolizes a funeral procession. The theory posits that a Paul McCartney look-a-like replaced him in the band and that if you play several songs backwards like “Revolution No. 9” and “A Day in the Life,” you will hear cryptic messages about his death.
4.) Illuminati have infiltrated music – From Tupac to Taylor Swift, rumors of Illuminati puppets in the music industry is nothing new. Recently, Katy Perry has gotten a lot of media hype for her “Dark Horse” music video, which is abounding with pyramids and all-seeing eyes. Perry’s Grammy performance was even criticized as being a witchcraft ceremony. Occult symbolism started circulating around the music scene with early 90s hip-hop artists like Tupac whose posthumous album release, Don Killuminati: The 7 Day Theory, ignited debate on the rapper’s affiliation with the New World Order. During that same year, Jay-Z released his debut album, Reasonable Doubt, which was also filled with Illuminati references. In the song “D’evils,” Jay-Z sings: “Dear God, I wonder can you save me/ Illuminati wants my mind, soul and my body/ Dear God, I wonder can you save me/ Secret Society, tryin to keep an eye on me.” He and his wife Beyonce have been seen wearing occult symbols and are known for their triangular hand gesture, which mimics that of a pyramid. Kanye West, Rihanna, Lady Gaga, Ke$ha, and many more are said to be affiliated with the Illuminati as well and are working to control the masses.
5.) John Lennon was killed by the CIA – Mark David Chapman, the man who was convicted and imprisoned for the second degree murder of John Lennon, has been the subject of many conspiracies, most prominently that he was used as a pawn by the CIA. Like the JFK assassination, some believe there were multiple shooters on the night of December 8, 1980 due to the location of injuries sustained on Lennon’s body outside the Dakota. Author Phil Strongman made his views known in his book John Lennon: Life, Times and Assassination, claiming that Chapman was not the obsessive, crazed fan that the media made him out to be. Rather he was a state-controlled zombie, or sleeper assassin, triggered possibly by lines from Catcher in the Rye, which Chapman cited as his biggest inspiration. After digging into the murderer’s background, Strongman suggests that Chapman was recruited by the CIA. He found that Chapman was no stranger to world travel, most unusually and coincidentally was a visit to Beirut during the same time the CIA had a top-secret assassin training base there. Strongman notes the off-putting nature of someone like Chapman, who didn’t come from wealth, having so much money to travel the world. Strongman puts forth a compelling argument that the secret service was financing these trips, eventually using Chapman to kill John Lennon at the height of Lennon’s popularity. Lennon was living in America and very much opposed to the Vietnam War; therefore, his anti-war, and thus anti-establishment, philosophy was a huge threat to the American government. The police reports were not exhaustive by any means, nor were the bullet wounds on Lennon’s left side questioned when it was determined that Chapman’s position during the shooting was on his right.
