Everyone knows the amazing and life-changing Beatles right? They basically changed music history. The Beatles are one of the BEST bands ever to contribute to music history, and they will forever be one of the most amazing. We all know the many different life changes they went through, from Hard Day's Night, wearing black suits, to Mystery Tour and Sgt Peppers Band, wearing psychedelic clothes and other sorts, and also experimenting with drugs.

Now, we all know the mysterious things they placed into their songs, like the reversed guitar solos, or reversed sound effects. The occasional weird voice whisper. And no, this is not "omg clues that Paul McCartney died" this is not one of those, and I do not believe that rumor. Like for example at the end of the Strawberry Fields Forever song, John says "Cranberry Sauce" quietly. Now… moving on, we all know the famous experimental song the Beatles made called, "Revolution 9." Revolution 9, notably by most fans, was one of the most mysterious and creepiest songs by The Beatles, or in general. Just the weird mood of it, and the different sounds and not to mention the fire sound effects and the chanting of a crowd, AND the occasional sound of John Lennon saying something, one of them being… "My wings are broken and so is my hair."

But…. Did you know there was another one? Rumor has it; it was released some time in 1967. It was called, Carnival of Light. (Although Revolution came out in 1968, Carnival of Light was released in 1967). The experimental song was originally going to be released by Paul McCartney on an album, but George refused to let it happen, and it never did get released. Paul said, in 2008, that he still had the original tapes of Carnival of Light, and he planned on released it, but never did. You can find many so-called fake recordings on the web. I have looked far and deep on the internet and may have found a copy of the real deal, but of course it could be fake.

Now, you are probably wondering what does the experimental song, Carnival of Light, sound like? Well, it sounds devilish, satanic, sinister, and evil. Of course, I am being a little dramatic here, but it does sound very evil compared to Revolution 9. In R9, there were just many odd, but creepy sounds in that, but in Carnival of Light… oh boy. It first starts off in a weird windyish sound, and also hearing a weird buzzing sound at the same time. Not long after, you start to hear someone slamming on the drums kind of hard, and someone playing the guitar kind of loud and fast. In my honest opinion, doesn't sound much like the Beatles. After a few minutes of that, you start to hear this reversed sound, but I can't really make out what it is, sounds like a very, very faint talk, and soon you can kind of make out what it is, more like a growl, but still, I am not sure. This goes on for a few minutes, of the same satanic sound, occasionally hearing a weird moan in the back ground.

Soon, you start to hear someone shaking something. Sounds like a bag of bottles or glass clanking along each other. Again, the drumming sounds come back, but slower this time, probably drum playing By Ringo. The song soon comes to an abrupt halt, for a few seconds of complete silent then comes a weird sound from a person, then the drums come back again. This goes on for quite a while actually, until this next part comes on. And this next part literally scares me. The song suddenly comes to a complete mess of satanic sounds. You can barely make out whatever is happening, lots of weird, unexplainable sounds, just….just creepy. You can kind of make out a reversed sound of jazz playing and someone talking in reverse, but the pitch is kind of low. Things soon seem to calm down a bit and drums start playing more realistically this time than both times before, and not to mention very faint talking from, what sounds like, the Beatles themselves. After the drums, comes a guitar sound, but it really doesn't sound like the Beatles at all. This repeats for awhile, nothing really new. After a while, you can hear more faint talking, really not sure what to make out of this.

I am really not sure that I can listen to the rest. It creeps me out to much, and it's really hard to think that the Beatles could've made this. And those that think it's fake, you can wiki Carnival of Light, and you can see for yourself. I believe I heard the real version, I think I'll be having nightmares later.

Listen at your own risk…..
