Samples/Lyrics

  • At approximately 2:16, a vocal sample (revealed by Michael Sandison in a Remix Magazine interview to have been sampled from an adult film) is believed to contain the following monologue:

That tiny room at the beach was absolutely the perfect place for my first time. When we came together, I could feel the hairs growing on my chest. I saw my future. I saw my past. For a few minutes it was like being alive. They lived happily ever after. All my questions had been answered. All my fears disappeared. All that was left was a kiss. Every move we made was a kiss."

This same monologue is used in the track 'Sir Prancelot Brainfire'.

Comments

  • The version on "Psychogeographic X" is a slightly different cut from the original.
  • One possible meaning of the title: sixty-nine or soixante-neuf, in relation to the fact that the lyrics are from a porn film; credit, [sixtytenth]. But it may also be significant that there are tracks called Sixtyniner, 1969, and June 9th (6/9). [DC]
  • The melody strongly resembles that of Music Is Math from Boards of Canada's second officially released LP, Geogaddi.
  • A manipulated segment of the recorder sample used from 2:35 to 2:56 can be heard in "A Is To B As B Is To C", also from Geogaddi.
