I'm not even sure "Revolution 9" can be considered a song.  It's more of a conceptual abstraction of abstract conceptualization.  Sorry.  Can't think of any way to describe it actually.

Anyway, I don't avoid it.  If I'm listening to White Album late at night, I'll lay down on the couch and listen to R9 with the room dark, eyes closed.  It really does evoke a strange atmosphere. 

I grew up in a really small farm town that was pretty remote.  There weren't even many radio stations we could pick up in the 60s and 70s when I was growing up.  At night, most stations would amp their broadcast power down, so signals were iffy at best.  If you drove anywhere with the radio on, the signals would come in and out.  And that's exactly what Revolution 9 sounds like to me.  When the crowd chants "Block that kick!  Block that kick!" I drift back to my days of Friday night high school football.  It's almost a time machine for me.

So when I hear it at night, in the dark, it actually relaxes me.  And then when Ringo comes on, crooning "Good Night", I almost automatically slip away into dreamland...

I read somewhere that is considered "musique concrète".

Hi mistabook! I know I can look this up myself, but I'd rather ask you - what defining characteristic does Revolution 9 share with say I've Just Seen a Face that makes them both music?

Ad hoc, ad loc, and quid pro quo! So little time! So much to know!

In some definitions, R9 isn't music, in others, it is: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/D.....n_of_music

They need to work the first part, they need a lower-pitch, soft voice for "number nine" part too. The last section is fine.
