Other Voices, Part 12: Paint It Black

I speculated in my April 22, 2013 post that Paul's real last name might be Black, so I started thinking about songs around the year 1966 that had the word "black" in them.  Of course, The Rolling Stones released the song Paint It Black in 1966--recorded March 6-9, 1966 and released May 7, 1966 in the US and May 13, 1966 in the UK, so I checked for backmasking in the song and I found some.

The song is on Youtube at:  http://www.youtube.com/watch?fPVUa29kHu8  .

Beginning about 2:47 in the reversed song, you can here Jagger sing something about "out."
At 3:08-3:11, you can hear:  "He was from us . . . but he's out."

If you remember the Christmas Time Is Here Again song from the Beatles' 1967 Christmas fan club record--which I believe chronicled the selection of our Paul's replacement--Ringo sings, "O-U-T spells OUT" several times in the song.

Was Mr. Black on his way out in early 1966?

Now Paul's new song Queenie Eye says "O-U-T spells out" in the chorus.

Amazing. The man is getting closer and closer to telling the truth. Time will tell. But, still, I wouldn't rely on it, and I will continue my research.
