Interesting. Ive heard stairway and another one bites the dust in reverse before. Stairway sounded different than what I remember,. however, that was many moons ago, and I of course was um.. toaster pastry at the time. needless to say, I was very freaked out from what I had heard. It was a long quiet ride home. **shudder**

My old walkman was dropped once which screwed up the tape reversal mechanism. Sometimes rather than switching from side A to side B it would only reverse the direction of the tape but not the change the position of the head. The result would be listening to the previous song in reverse. Creepy.

This of course spawned the interest to listen to songs that had known reversed talking to finally figure out what they were saying. The 2 that I remember were Crazy Train by Ozzy where it said something about marijuana and a song off The Wall by Pink Floyd that stated by discovering that message you should send a postcard care of Mr. Pink to some location.

Dude, I just read your statement and nearly choked on my egg sandwich. That was funny. I used to feel the same way when I was younger.

Glad I can be of help. ;)

That Britney Spears one was just funny though, I wonder if there's any in her other songs?

my strange friend, Tracca told me that she replaced The Wizard of Oz's soundtrack with Pink Floyd's Dark Side of the Moon and that it worked perfectly - sometimes scarily - in places.

I know this is not reversed, but thought it was kind of the flavour of this thread...

You mean naughty like "let's draw on the wall with crayons", right? Britney would never say anything naughtier than that. :rolleyes: :D

Actually, if you pop in the Wizard of Oz and when the Lion(MGM) roars for the third time, start playing Darkside and it lines up perfectly. FOr example

When he sings balanced on the biggest wave, race towards an early grave, she falls off the fence into the pig pen
When he says, Home, Home again....Dorothy leaves the fortune teller and arrives at home.
The Great Gig in the sky....goes perfectly with the tornado.
The beginning of Money kicks in as it goes from B&W to color.
When he says Which is Which and WHo is Who, Glinda the good witch shows up.
Brian Damage starts as she meets the Scarecrow
At the end of Eclipse when you hear the heartbeat, she puts her head on the Tin Mans' chest

Dark side of Oz, you can't attend a large university without having to experience that once.

Dark Side of Oz works well the first time through the CD. Once it repeats, things don't synch up too well.

My favorite part is the gear noises when you see the evil lady on the bicycle.

When I wa sworking in radio we used to use an instrument called a short cut which we could play song backwards and edit stuff out. It was pretty cool trying stuff out cause you never know what you would hear. Rammstein was always fun becuase we didn't understand them forward or backwards.

Many years ago, I "scanned" (not sure of the correct word) "Stairway to Heaven" into a computer at the college and reversed it. I did this because supposedly "Rock and Roll" reverses to say "Here's to sweet Satan, I follow him, don't you?" (Though to me it always sounded like "Yip yip ya say say morrla gobbledygook."

Figuring that "Stairway" might contain more heinous satanic messages :rolleyes:, I was rathered shocked to make out one completely intelligible line: "I wish it would snow ice cream."

There you have it. Zep wasn't evil. They just loved ice cream. :)

There was some industrial band that my brother was telling me about that had some eerie talking in a particular song that was nothing more than the reading of a receipe backwards. Evil Cooking!!!! RAhh!

Everyone knows the best use of reversal was playing the guitar sounds backwards in the intro to Blackened.

Fire!
To begin whipping dance of the dead!
Blackened is the end!
To begin whipping dance of the dead!
Color our world blackened!

Damn, I need to listen to that now

One of my sister's creepy friends had a CD on, with what sounded like Hitler saying stuff to his Nazis. Turned out it was the ingredients for brownies in German. :p So I don't know if the two are related.

Has anyone seen Little Nicky? That part with Chicago backwards is hilarious!

I’m just amazed at how clear the Led Zeppelin words are. But I can’t imagine what part played forward says six-six-six (I don’t hear anything repeated 3 times when listening to it forward).

The Beatles track sounds as though they purposely learned how to say that phase backwards. I once saw on an old episode of “That’s Incredible” in the 80’s where some guy could say almost any word backwards perfectly.

I heard a rumor that on Weird Al’s song “King of Suede” that he says “Satan eats cheese wiz” backwards in some part of it. I’ve never been able to confirm this though.

Okay, time for me to represent MOBO again ;)

The vulgar truth behind Missy Elliott's Work it

"Is it worth it, let me work, put my thing down, flip it and reverse it, flippy bippy dibby doo" which translates thusly;

"it's yours if you can get it wet, ******"

later on she repeats a line the right way after reversing it;
flippy bippy dibby doo
"I'm not a p********e, but I can give you what you want"
