Revolution 9 Backwards
"Revolution 9" was recorded for the White Album in May 1968. Opening words spoken in the song prove to foretell the date and the events of Tuesday morning, December 9, 1980 (Great Britain time). "number nine, number nine, number nine" When played backward, phonetically can be heard as "turn me on dead man" The reverse clip maintains a most fiendish tonal quality almost commanding. "turn me on dead man, turn me on dead man, turn me on dead man." "Turn me on dead man" is undeniably similar to the lyrics "I'd love to turn you on" from John's "A Day in the Life".
