Revolution 9 (Live)
MMM: Revolution 9 Response: "A French-horn player whimpered like a newborn into one microphone, as a violinist murmured through a trumpet mute into another mike so that her voice sounded watery and indistinct. A percussionist smashed and stirred a bagful of broken glass with a hammer, and a clarinetist blurted the tune to ???There???s a place in France / Where the naked ladies dance.??? A sober young man, unaccustomed to performing, wielded one of those old-fashioned squeezable car horns and in an impassive baritone kept repeating: ???Number nine ??? number nine.???"
