    Link: Beatles Hidden Messages? - Well, this video proves it--the Beatles backtracked their songs with hidden messages. Does this explain Charles Manson?

    I was getting all ready to rock out to these songs, then they`d stop them and play them backwards, with mediocre results. =(

    The mind hears what it wants to hear. You hear those words because it shows the lyrics. There are songs that use backmasking, but come on. One i know of is a Weird al song, where the back message is"i buried my parrot in the backyard, oh no, you should play this backwards, you might scratch the record" which is a spoof of another bands backmask that is similar.

    Led Zeppelin never had backmasking, it was just an attempt to make them look like satanists. Do your research.

    "its like those videos with "talking" cats, you put words on the bottom of the screen and your brain hears the words"

    Indeed, it is the effect of hearing what you want to hear. Psychologically, your brain sees the words and essentially scans for anything that sounds like them in the clip.

    "The mind hears what it wants to hear."

    Thank you for saying this before I had to. To naysayers, try it. If you haven`t seen the video yet (if you have, find another), just wait until it`s about to play it backwards then cover your eyes and just listen. Some you might hear, but others when you check them will make you say, "Wtf."

    Also.
    "You know you fail when you spell field wrong."
    Seconded. The same with spelling believe `belive`.
    Really? Well. At least spellcheck your nonsensical youtube videos before posting them, kthnx.

    Want to know why this is fake?
    Close your eyes (or cover the screen if you are scared of the dark) and try and listen to what they are saying, then check the lyrics afterwards.

    Your mind is a powerful thing.

    Back in my forties when I was just a priest, I would sit around in my spare time, having removed the belt from my turntable (a big advantage over direct-drives) and would play all of my Pink Floyd records backwards. Ummagumma was interesting, when played forwards at various speeds. Never found anything else interesting until The Wall. It was obviously an intentional message. You could actually hear a narrative that was not subject to interpretation, unlike this load of crap.

    The Paul is dead conspiracy in part may have been done as a joke by the Beatles themselves - some of the songs from sergent pepper`s are about his accident (lovely Rita referring to the hitchiker when he had his moped crash) and them putting in a few "hidden" meanings in may have been thought funny, or beneficial publicitywise. Forward playing lyrics that make little sense like the gibberish or "number nine" that play backwards to reveal "Paul is dead" could have been done deliberately as an inside joke, especially considering all the little clues on the Sergent Pepper`s album cover relating to Paul`s supposed "death".

    Aside from those two though, the rest of the stuff the vid show was nonsensical - random words that make no real sense.

    And is Paul dead? Of course not.

    If the message is real words forwards, and questionable backwards, its auto-fake. do you know how IMPOSSIBLY hard it would be to make real and normal lyrics sound like ANYTHING backwards? practically infeasible. i know that "paul is dead, miss him miss him miss him" at the end of strawberry F-I-E-L-D-S is real, but its just the beatles spoofing the already-existing "dead paul" theory. the rest is just poo.

    You can play many songs backwards and attempt to make the musicians look bad. Half of these just ended up being random statements. I listened to it without looking at the screen for part of the video and it just sounded like gibberish.

    There`s also a hidden message in the song "Stars are blind" from Paris Hilton. You play the song backward and at some point you hear her say "A clown`s face is inhuman with rage in blood".

    These sort of things only happens to people who are about to die tragically ( Sometimes someone close to the person talking ) and it`s scary as hell... still not as scary as the Aphex Twin devil face that appears in the wave sound spectrograph.

    Yeah, I dunno about the songs being backwards though, most likely you will make out some phrase from 2-4 minutes of speaking backwards.

    i really believed this at first. I`ve heard conspiracy theories that Paul died and they replaced him with a replica. The picture with them wlkaing on the zebra crossing is them dressed up as the parts of the funeral, paul is the dead man (no shoes) then there is the cheif mourner and stuff so it shocked me at first. But the comments are true, the mind belives they are saying that because it is written down

    I don`t get it, for it to be really scary shouldn`t it have said "Jhon is a dead man" ect. That would have at least been prophetic.

    for those who say the beatles didnt backmask, your wrong. some of these might be fake, but the ones about paul are real. they had some schtick were paul was dead. look at the abby road cover. paul has the last ciggerate, hes in his white suite, and hes wearing no shoes, which i think is meant for him to be an angel or something. but yea some were random words, probably just to mess with people.

    and i love zeppelin and i know the satan thing, but maybe Page did somehting because he used to be obsessed with aliester cronwell(?), who was some satan freak. but no there not satanists.

    Ok the one that was supposed to be scary was just a bunch of gibberish. It seems a bit of a stretch make that coherent.

    Paul can`t be dead, because no one can make music like him.
