RE: Siberian Khatru

Dear Intertwit,

As one of the leading thought provokers in the world of progressive rock, I’ve been researching the constructs of Siberian Khatru  by “Yes” with my colleagues at the Institute here (yes, it’s the Institute of Progressive Rock).

We’ve wasted tonnes of taxpayers money in the process! We’re up to seven figures now and surely that’s money well spent? I suspect the NHS is fine, but haven’t looked to check. Head down on these matters etc.

We like that Siberian Khatru is written in  the key of G major. We also like the four-measure phase. It really great that it consists of 3 bars in common time (4/4) and the final bar in 3/4. Nice touch!

However, when our massive brains are momentarily switched off here at the Institute, we actually prefer “Owner of a Lonely Heart” and “Leave It”.

We’re actually all quite crazy here in our white lab coats and pony tails! (sorry that was a momentary outbreak of emotion/expression – won’t be repeated)..

We assume Rick Wakeman works for you as a key adviser so we look forward to a well advised reply.

So please let us know what we should be analysing.. ..

Thanks for the additional answer Mr O’Brien. With regard to your “Owner of a Lonely Goat” theory can I ask whether the next line went

Much better than an owner of a broken goat?

Or did Rabin want something like:

Much better than an owner of a broken boat \ moat \ stoat?
