    "Hidden Messages " in Music

    I stumbled on a pretty cool site. It has a couple of audio clips from different artists that when played backwards reveals a hidden message. Coincidence? You decide.

    Some of them had me seriously wondering... it'd be too difficult to to plan for this type of effect?

    The first one, stairway to heaven takes a couple of seconds to load. The rest of them are pretty quick.

    Yes, those of us over the age of 20 remember the 2nd time backward masking came around (the first time was when we were in diapers)...

    Wait till they hear J Geils freeze frame, BOC's don't fear the reaper, and get into the Beatles a bit more...

    Yeah! I have been hearing a lot about the "Hidden Messages". Many of the non-governmental bodies tried so hard to stop showing off the carton series Pokemon. The only fatal and unforgiven mistake is that they did not clarify "WHY?". This made a lot of poeple skeptic about how much true thier claims are.

    A lot of people said that the Rock music in general and the Metal music particularily is highly concerned in deliveriing evil and satanic messages. {I don't believe i this, the proof, I'm still listening to my favorite metal bands }

    ELO, actualy did a track that if played backwards would turn into English. Fire On High or something or other, I think it was a B side.The old memory is not what it used to be.Lmao.

    All of them are not real.

    Years ago already, this myth was debunked.

    It started with some British kid taking his own life, and Judas Priest was blamed: http://www.csicop.org/si/9611/judas_priest.html for the full story.
    After that, millions of people showed up claiming that all kinds of songs contained all kinds of hidden messages. They don't. If they do, they're songs by people who would throw a piece of metal in the air, take a picture of it, and claim that it's a UFO.

    This myth goes in the same garbage can as the subliminal "Drink Coke" messages supposedly played at movie theaters...

    I've been checking some more of these out. Some of them are not real. But.. a lot of these are naturally occuring "speech reversals". Not sure if they knew it at the time when they wrote the song... but pretty strange either way.

    Check out this site for more.

    More interesting is the main page of that site. They have links to all kinds of examples.

    Correct...and the message was as follows...

    "The music is reversible, but time is not...turn back...turn back..."
