BTW, all calliopes sound slightly out of tune. It's their nature and part of their old time charm..

If you remember the old Freddy Cannon song, " Palisades Park", a cheap electronic organ was recoded slightly out of tune to mimic a calliope.

BTW I use to go to the old Palisades park.. I'm getting old LOL.

BTW, I found this to explain why a calliope sounds frequently out of tune......

" It can't be helped. Steam is hot, so when a note is played, the pipe expands. When it stops, the pipe contracts. A longer pipe results in a slightly lower pitch, a shorter pipe in a slightly higher pitch. So by definition, as it's played with steam, it' always sounds more or less out of tune - the charm of a calliope...

And in French it is pronounced like it's spelled. Cal-i-ope. A steam powered pipe organ - what an idea! Heard one not long ago on a Savannah riverboat.

On the Beatles "Revolution Number Nine" on the "White Album", number nine was taken from track checks in the studio and they just liked the sound of the alliteration as it was constantly repeated in the "song".

By sheer coincidence, someone eventually discovered that it you play number nine backwards, it sounds something like "turn me on dead man".
This helped spur the rumor that Paul was dead.
This was after the release of "Abbey Road" that featured a funeral procession crossing Abbey Road on the cover. This simply signified the death of the Beatles........ not the death of Paul.
Abby Road was indeed the Beatles' last studio album.

Then, some started to play all sorts of records backwards and claimed that they contained secret messages. Of course they did not and it was all in the ear of the beholder..

You can play most anything backwards and claim to find a secrete message in it.

There are some who don't need to play records to hear "secret messages".

BTW at the end of "Strawberry Fields where someone says almost imperceptibly, "I'm very bored", some swear they are saying "I burried Paul" while evidently being oblivious of the fact that the song is all about being bored.

I remember when I got my first Pc I recorded that track and then used the "reverse" that was available in Sound Recorder in Windows.
It just resembled a Beck's song ( the bass line)

For those interested in the science behind the hidden messages decoded from music playing backwards, look into cognitive bias and auditory illusions. Mike Shermer has a humorous take on it in his TED talk.

Michael Shermer: Why people believe weird things | Video on TED.com

Fast forward to 8:55 for the forward/reverse music example.
