  Revolution (song)
"Revolution" is a song by The Beatles, written primarily by John Lennon and attributed to Lennon-McCartney.
This track is one of the loudest and most aggressive Beatle songs; it begins abruptly with a loud, overdriven electric guitar chord played by John Lennon, a thundering, compressed drum beat from Ringo Starr and a wailing scream from Lennon as the song launches into gear.
The lyrics of the song can be interpreted as a cautionary response to the most extreme elements of the counter-culture movement of the era, as Lennon's verses express sympathy for, yet outline several limits to his support of political and social revolutionary action, in the most famous case rejecting violence:

  China vs. Song Yongyi
Song, an authority on the brutal Maoist decade from 1966 to 1976, went to China in July to resume his scholarly hunt for old newspapers and other documents from the period.
Complicating Song's case is the fact that although he is a permanent U.S. resident and had completed the requirements for citizenship, he had not taken a formal oath.
If Song's arrest points to the hazards of research in some parts of the world, then the message is hitting especially hard at Dickinson, a liberal arts campus whose focus on international study is as obvious as the parking signs in Italian, German, Spanish and French and the foreign flags draped from buildings.

 Revolution 9 by The Beatles Songfacts
This is very similar to a revolution: there is a feeling of unease, but ordinary life goes on throughout it.
After "Revolution 9," sampling was used minimally, but by abstract composers such as John Cage, but it had little effect until the early 1980?s with the introduction of hip-hop music (free verse or rhyming verses recited over samples of music.) In the Beatles' song, classical music was sampled as well.
Revolution Number 9 is in fact a revolution as it began the transition of these musique concrete applications into popular culture.

It is impossible to write about this song and not write about the anime is was written for; "Shoujo Kakumei Utena" because Makkun (Masami Okui) plays the part of its lead character "Tenjou Utena" in the song, and its related works in a truly extraordinary way.
But we know the song is "Rondo-revolution" due to Makkun saying "Rondo-revolution" herself and indicating in furikana that the kanji "Rinbu" is said "Rondo" in a personally written liner-note for the single.
By adding this meaning to the title Makkun is referring to the characters in SKU using a circular dance as a metaphor for the endless struggle of their lives, or the endless cycle of life itself.

 Carnation Revolution: Encyclopedia II - Carnation Revolution - Events
In February 1974, Caetano was obliged by the old guard to remove General António Spínola and his underlings as the General tried to change the direction of Portuguese colonial policy, which had become too expensive.
This movement was borne in secrecy in 1973 through the conspiracy of some army officers of leftist tendencies who had been radicalized by the colonial war.
The revolution was closely watched from neighbouring Spain, where democrats and totalitarians were planning for the succession of Francisco Franco, who died a year later, in 1975.

 The Beatles - Revolution song facts and lyric meanings
There were plans to use more Beatles songs in future ads, but they were abandoned when it became clear it was not good business practice.
As years went by, it became more acceptable to use songs in commercials, but Beatles songs were still considered sacred, especially since the group did not control their rights.
Many Beatles fans were not pleased, but it didn't get nearly the reaction of the Nike commercials, partly because it was not a political song, but also because it was sung by Julian Lennon, which implied endorsement by his father.

 Our Revolution (May 21, 2003)
The song is described as a "a feminist attack on attempts to equate political revolution with promiscuous sex" and challenges male-dominated popular music.
Two years later, on February 20, 2003, the FCC concluded that the song was, in fact, not "patently offensive," given contemporary community standards, non-repeated graphic description and, to a lesser degree, context.
KBOO argued that the show is a forum for important social and political messages and aired the Sarah Jones song because of its serious content and impact, especially for young women listeners, and that this should have been considered by the FCC.

Creating a song amounts to selecting a pattern and transposing for each song step, and designating which step is the loop point for the song.
Revolution is well suited to a number of tasks: it's a great TB-303 emulation, its sequencer can play MIDI and analog external sound modules, and it seamlessly interfaces with MIDI sequencing software as either master or slave.
