Not a Number: 4'33" (John Cage cover)

I'm feeling a little festive, so why not celebrate the season by covering John Cage's 1952 work, 4'33"?
 

(and if you know why I chose this song, then internets for you)

Quote from: Wikipedia:4'33"
4′33″ is a three-movement composition by American experimental composer John Cage (1912–1992). It was composed in 1952 for any instrument (or combination of instruments), and the score instructs the performer not to play the instrument during the entire duration of the piece throughout the three movements. Although commonly perceived as "four minutes thirty-three seconds of silence", the piece actually consists of the sounds of the environment that the listeners hear while it is performed. Over the years, 4′33″ became Cage's most famous and most controversial composition.
The sound recorded in the song is what was recorded from Music 2000
Admittedly I created it in jest, but the actual reason behind choosing this track is that there is currently a campaign here in the UK to get this piece as Christmas No.1 in the charts. :P (no seriously; ) It's in the Top 20 already [*ding*], but we won't know the final result until Saturday.
