  • Annnnddddd….. Since this is Installment No. 9 (No. 9, No. 9, No. 9…..) I thought I’d add some of the lyrics from the Beatles that kinda, sorta, almost hinted that Paul was dead .  But have a look at this site.

From Revolution No. 9: The repeated phrase “Number nine,” when played backwards, becomes “turn me on, dead man.” There’s also a lot of recorded conversation in this music-free track, much of which has been taken by listeners as clues to Paul’s crash and death: “his voice was low and his eyes were high and his eyes were closed” and “his legs were drawn, his hands were tied, his feet were bent and his head was on fire and his glasses were insane. This was the end of his audience,” and “My wings are broken and so is my hair. I’m not in the mood for wearing clothing.” You can also hear the crash, a fire, sirens, and Paul screaming “Get me out.” (Source: from.)

And, for those who are interested, here’s Revolution #9 backwards so that you can hear it. (It’s a bit unnerving; but well, that’s what we were hearing when the Paul-is-dead furor hit the airwaves. Go figure.)

Enjoy listening!  And come back for my next installment.
