(From the article "13 lost pieces of music history that we're dying to see released" on ToneDeaf.com)
In 1968, Paul McCartney agreed to contribute a piece of music to an art show held by British designer David Vaughan. The contributed piece, entitled "Carnival Of Light", is said to be one of the longest, and most psychedelic of all the pieces of music recorded by The Beatles.
Consisting of distorted guitars, church organs, and screamed phrases from John Lennon and Paul McCartney, it doesn't appear to be one of the Fab Four's most palatable works.

The track is said to be incredibly avant-garde, and certainly not something that would be found on any of the group's records, so naturally, we want to hear it.
Surprisingly though, Paul McCartney actually wants us to hear it, and has actively campaigned to have the track released. He tried to get it released back in 1995, but George Harrison denied its release, and if McCartney wants it to be released now, he would need consent from Ringo Starr and the widows of Lennon and Harrison.
However, considering all he has done for music in the past, we're sure McCartney will find a way to let us finally hear this unreleased piece of Beatles history.
