    The translation of "Stairway" backwards was cool--but the other songs were a little far fetched--except for floyd-but that was obviously intentional

    funny thing is about these things is that it is scientifically proven that if you were to record someone speaking or singing that thir true thoughts come out when you play the recording backwards. It`s really freaky stuff. The Stairway to Heaven always gets me because they supposedly sold their souls to the devil so they could get famous. I thought the one from the Beatles was creepy too...

    this kind of stuff is totally fake. you can make backwards lines sound like many different things if u list underneath what the line is supposed to be. ppl convince themselves that it sounds like it. this i learned from a psychology professor.

    i didnt hear anything listening to the backwards versions until they provided what they thought it was saying, and even then it was a stretch..

    other than the pink floyd and the zeppelin ones, this whole thing was very stupid. i still didnt hear anything until they gave me the words.

    the thing which bloody_lust is refering to is something called reverse speak or something like that. Personally I think its bunk, but some people believe it. Certainly not proven, I can tell ya that. As for this I found it neat but other then Pink Floyd`s intentional one, the only one I found sounded real was Queen`s

    Floyd was intensional. I think they ment to put it in there to make fun of people who play records and tapes backwards looking for secret messages. The Queen one was somewhat understandable, and funny, so was Britney..

    Kiss Kiss Kiss: this puzzles me, cauz both ways its pronnouced wierd
    My Name is..: Knowing Eminem, he put it in as a joke
    Pokemon Rap: Although i am a big anime fan, i truly do hate Pokemon for making anime look bad so i belive this
    Empty Spaces: Pink`s the kind of person 2 do this
    Another one Bites the Dust: Not only is Queen gay, but they`re potheads. they have admitted this

    hehe, all this commotion over back-masking! Look, all this hooblah started with a group of friends that settled a suicide pact because they were told to in a Judas Preist record, which they played backwards. A mother of one of the children (The child was the only survivor of the suicide pact, but was seriously injured) sued the band for everything they had, until a scientist concluded that the only way these subliminal messages or "back-masks" can be sub-conciously entered into the brain is if you play the song backwards. Judas Preist didnt lose a single dime(And this isn`t an urban myth, it honestly happened). Good to get that settled.
    P.S. And everyone who said that people believe what the song is saying because of influence to lyrics are dead on. That was another thing that was in the Judas Preist case. The only true song out of there with back-masking that has been repetativly said in this forum is empty spaces, and Stairway to Heaven has always been a huge consp

    As for the "turn me on, dead man" - this is a reversal of the phonemes in the words "Number nine". William Poundstone`s Big Secrets books do a good job of covering this in detail.

    except for the pink floyd one, all of those were retarted. I mean, it was really cool to listen to the songs backwards, but you had to really really stretch your imagination to hear those backwards lyrics. I played all of them first without reading the lyrics backwards and they sounded like nothing at all. Creative but completely stupid.

    "This is soooooooo retarded. Theres no way these could be evil messages. They can`t be because if you put it backwards its just like a sentence backwards. Example:The dog ran through the park.
    Park the through ran dog the."

    Hate to burst your bubble, but when you play it backwards it doesn`t pronounce each word exactly as it is from back to front, it pronounces it like you said the word backwards - It wouldn`t say "Park the through ran dog the." it would be more of "krap eht hgourht nar god eht" So your little theory is ah...wrong.

    its kind of creepy but i dont know whether to believe it or not. they say `reverse speech` is a 7th sense people have and its when your true thoughts come out when you reverse a clip of you talking so it plays backwards
    its kinda cool coz i tried it once when i was having a conversation with this person i hate *lol* and when i reversed it, i said things like `i f*cking hate you`. theres some website i know where it has clips and stuff but theres one clip where 2 little girls are talking and one asks the other `why do you have to take an injection` and the other one replies `to make me better` but when you reverse the clip the second girl says `i hate them` so clearly its scary!
    im still skeptical though but i think the britney one was funny but i can only make out the part `im not to young` the rest of it sounds nothing like `sleep with me`

    your mind is something that will never totally be explained.....example: do you have stucco on your ceiling? if you do look up and tell yourself what you want to see, and you will see it

    not positive if this is absolutely true or not, so don`t yell at me if I`m wrong, but with the whole "paul is a dead man" thing, there was a rumer going around that Paul was dead, and The Beatles went along with it as a publicity stunt. Paul then had to go out at a press conference to tell everyone that he was not dead eventually. Again, this is just what I`ve heard from a friend, so this may not be exactly right, but hopefully close enough

    on the eminem one it would of sounded more satanic if the reverse lyrics were wrote as "Its slim, sniff it up, sniff it up ,sniff it up"
