Pulk/Pull Revolving Doors is the 3rd song off of Amnesiac.

History

The third track, Pulk/Pull Revolving Doors, was built on a Roland MC-505 sequencer with loops of found sounds recorded in the OK Computer sessions. Colin Greenwood explained:

"We set up these tape recorders and we disabled the erase heads. We stuck the record head so it kept on recording over and over on top of itself and played keyboard notes into it to create this ghost repetition melody."

Auto-Tune was used again, this time to process speech into melody:

"You give the machine a key and then you just talk into it. It desperately tries to search for the music in your speech, and produces notes at random. If you've assigned it a key, you've got music."

Lyrics

There are barn doors
And there are revolving doors
Doors in the rudders of big ships
And there are revolving doors
There are doors that open by themselves
There are sliding doors
And there are secret doors
There are doors that lock
And doors that don't
There are doors that let you in
And out
But never open
And there are trapdoors
That you can't come back from
