By Dan Turkel 14 hours ago The golden rule of skeptical media consumption is “if the headline is a question, the answer is no” and this is likely no exception. But, if you’re interested in Beatles apocrypha, then this one’s for you. The Beatles recorded a song called “Carnival of Light” for The Million Volt Light and Sound Rave in 1967. It has a Wikipedia article and everything. Mark Lewisohn, Beatles expert, said that the song had “distorted, hypnotic drum and organ sounds, a distorted lead guitar, the sound of a church organ, various effects (water gargling was one) and, perhaps most intimidating of all, John Lennon and [Paul] McCartney screaming dementedly and bawling aloud random phrases like ‘Are you alright?’ and ‘Barcelona!’” Sure, it sounds like an urban legend, but Paul McCartney himself said he’d like to have it released, which would sure shut us all up. And would Paul ever acknowledge a false urban legend for fun? Last night, Beats Per Minute claims to have been “passed along” a file containing a supposed recording of the track. Admittedly, it fits the known descriptions of the track (between 13 and 15 minutes in length, “Are you okay?” and “Barcelona!” and so on). Then again, there’s absolutely no source given and no real evidence to go on. (Evan Kaloudis, the writer who posted the track, tweeted that his “meth dealer gave me a sheet of paper with a BearShare address on it”—draw your own conclusions). At the very least, listen to the track (or some of it) below. It could be a piece of history. More likely it’s some budding DJ’s social experiment. Let’s just sit back, listen up and wait for Paul to weigh in.
