Songs In Reverse

In this class at my school we got to listen to songs backwards. It was so cool!!!! We listened to all of these songs on vinal so it was even cooler. I never knew that in Queen's Another On Bites The Dust. When Freddie Mercury sings the chorus: (you know it!)

Another one bites the dust
Another one bites the dust
And another one gone and another one gone
Another one bites the dust
Hey I'm gonna get you too
Another one bites the dust

In reverse it sounds close to something like:
you deserve marijuana and you should try marijuana...its so killer!

Chicago is supposed to have some great reverse messages ... At least, that's what I learned from Little Nicky.

The Judas Priest song we played was Better By You, Better Than Me...a song they didn't even write. This was the song that was occused of having "subliminal messages" in the song and made 2 kids try suicide and only one kid died. i guess the sublimnal message was something like "do it, do it", but it clearly wasn't..so the case was dropped...this was like when Judas Priest was first starting out and happened in the early-mid 1980's.

Judas Priest played a sample of their songs backwards in court, pointing out that one sounded like:

"Mommy I want new shoes now"

On when you play a track NIN's "The Fragile" ("Even Deeper," I think) you can make out the message "I'm getting closer." Hidden messages are neat-o.

Re: Songs In Reverse

Yeah...again I resurrect an old thread but hey-even after a year plus on AS I still havn't seen every single post made so sue me...

Anyway, I should look for some of these songs you folks have been discussing here. With my trusty Cool Edit Pro, I can easily reverse all or part of any recording I have stored in my system with perfect fidelity.
On the subject of reverse messages, back in the 70's the band Electric Light Orchestra (ELO) did a great song called "FIRE ON HIGH". At the beginning of the piece, there is a short bit of reversed voice which I always wondered what was said. Now I know and I present it to you. Once it's reversed, it hardly seems either threatening or mysterious...
TRACK1 is an the excerpted portion of the song in its original form

TRACK2 is the exact same excerpt reversed with Cool Edit pro.

I should also note that I did this in mono rather than stereo seeing as how it was only for demo purposes-and also recorded it at 11.025kHz as opposed to the CD standard 44.1kHz so if it sounds a bit scratchy, it's not your system or media player....

Re: Songs In Reverse

if y'all want a real hoot in backward songs listen to Whookam by Steve Vai, the actual song is all backwards, but when reversed it's too fucking funny!

Re: Songs In Reverse

The Beatles are well known for backwards messaging ever since the Paul is dead rumors.

In The song "I'm so tired" (The white album) Lennon makes some garbled sentence at the end of the song. If played backwards the gibberish sounds like "paul is a dead...miss him, miss him, MISS HIM".

There are quite a few examples more but I won't get into it.

Here is a strange backwards message from the song "HELP!"


http://www.reversespeech.com/rev/helpbeat.Mp3


the message eerily sounds like "now he uses marijuana".
