    It's " cheeky bitch " which I don't get in the context.

    Claret. Not "clarett".

    I agree. Definitely the best song the Beatles put out. No one did anything like it before or since, you are right. They invented this. Just so cute. like all their stuff. Every single thing they uttered was completely new and perfect. Everyone knows this.

    Word "genius" thrown around too much

    The "will you forgive me?" must have been said with an attitude that he didn't care for so he said "cheeky bitch", all in good humor I'm sure or is it humour?

    Lennon has called better crafted works (like Abbey Road) “garbage.” So I have no qualms calling Revolution 9 “child’s play.” It’s just John & Yoko (and George) mucking about with tape machines and stitching bits together in a characteristically lazy chaotic manner. Fun for them maybe. Fun for us to hear once maybe. But more than a little pretentious and ballsy to take up more than 8:00 minutes worth of vinyl space that we paid for and could have been better served with something done with more effort. Unfortunately, John & Yoko were in a mode of turning out all kinds of crap and selling it to the public at the time. Doing it under the Beatles umbrella should have been off limits. Poor Ringo gets his best track on the LP ejected by most impatient listeners just by following this nonsense in the running order.

    8 minutes 22 seconds is a bit long. i like the humor of where it's placed on the album, and certain bits, but i think it could have been edited down to 6 or even 4 minutes. then they could have squeezed on "Junk" or "Not Guilty."

    I skip the last two songs on side 4 and half the songs on side 3
    Sides one and two are solid

    It’s got a good beat and you can dance to it. I love it.

    Abbey Road isn't garbage, of course
    No.9 isn't Child's play.
    2 wrongs seldom create a right.

    Like "You Know My Name" it is a unique piece. Something from a time gone by and at the same time, it is timeless.

    Lame music or whatever it is.
    Name brand worship.
    It's important because we need to know where Lennons mental state was 50 years ago.

    You forget Lennon wrote both No. 9 and Good Night. And to close an album was considered an honor. Much like an album opener.

    This is **excellent**; actually far scarier than the original.

    And yet, how many biographies are written on a subject to which people pay for the privilege to read. You're quibbling over a free thread ?
