comment What is a 13th chord?
IMO when musicians say 13 they usually mean 7add13. A real 13th chord has the 9th and 11th prominent. Like an Ebmaj7 with an F bass. Having rules about not voicing parts of a 13 chord says to me you really don't want a 13.

comment Understanding music with multiple key changes within chord progressions
Intro chords are Bm6, Fmaj7/A, D7/A, Bbmaj7. This and "Baby Lulu" I would argue to be Stereolab's greatest harmonic achievements. They show that the key can shift continuously; there are no solid boundaries, but look how long Tim Gayne (sp?) worked to get to this point. I would've never seen this coming from the early albums. The last few minutes of this song is particularly amazing.

comment Can Imaj7(#5) resolve to I?
Or rather a V13b9 (emphasizing the 6). Very common in jazz standards.

comment What could be the key of this chord progression?
Also, having both IV and iv is super common, I and i is rare.

comment Does the bass note in a “slash” chord really have an associated interval?
In the key of C this could be considered a simplification of G13♭9, a pretty common chord in jazz standards. It often appears after a Dm7, which takes a whole F triad and slides it down a semitone. A neat trick.

comment Equivalent Key Signatures
Yes, before equal temperament a work played in G# and any other key would sound different (different intervals between scale notes), but G# and Ab are identical keys on a keyboard, producing identical pitches. You are essentially arguing that, after playing a piece in G#, keyed instruments would be re-tuned before playing in Ab. Is there evidence that that was actually done?

@luserdroog, I'm slowly building a collection of my favorite songs re-pitched as close as possible to 440 using Audition (and a lot of patience). I haven't taken on Strawberry Fields yet.
