Hidden messages in songs

Post by szemi » Fri Sep 25, 2015 17:52

Sometimes I listen to songs backwards and I can hear messages.
Have you heard any message(s) in each songs?
Yeah, piece of cake!

Wut. Why would you choose to listen to songs backwards?
What are the nature of these messages you hear? Nothing demonic, I hope.

I heard the "Stairway to Heaven backwards" myth because it's one of my favorite Zeppelin tracks. I personally don't think they hid those messages, but it's always possible.

The biggest reason I don't think it's real: You can tell he's saying it forwards, so any message would need to be very, very carefully said backwards from what it's supposed to be. Also I think there's too much of a stretch with the words for what people believe they mean.

Edit: Forgot about one that's real: Pink Floyd's Empty Spaces.

Yeah, I'd wager most if not all the classics from that era (1970s) didn't intend to include that crazy backtracking or hidden messages. Perhaps it's only been a deliberate practice in very recent times.

In the summer of 2007, I was staying at a friend's house in a small hick town,
and I listened to Stairway of Heaven by Led Zeppelin backwards, just to see what all the fuss was about, as well as "The Great Below" by Nine Inch Nails backwards, both in their entirety.

Man, I am not joking... I got the chills, and whether it was the sleep deprivation or alcohol, I started "seeing" weird crap that night.

Probably you were doing the same when making Shmaynoria.

I was drunk and sleep deprived when I made Shmaynoria, so probably.

I feel like I shouldn't encourage this behavior... But I have to admit, the results are amazing :o
