Backmasking in music

I don't believe all the stuff about people becoming evil because they accidentally played a Chicago record backwards or something, but some of this stuff is pretty cool.

And the whole story behind Jimmy Page and Stairway to Heaven is really weird. Especially since that whole song can be interpreted backwards. Granted, not every word is perfect, but he spent hours on hours in the studio playing and replaying small sections of audio, probably trying to perfect it forward and backward. I think he wanted the song to be backwards.

Here's a link w/ some of the songs. I like Queen's and Britney Spears'

yeah, it's been updated. I found a site on my friends pc that had the whole song Stairway to Heaven backwards translated. or at least spelled out.

Think tho, if you walk the stairway to heaven backwards, where will you end up?

depends on your translation of it... are you walking UP the stairs to heaven backwards, or are you walking DOWN the stairway FROM heaven? <shrugs>

well the point i was getting at is

Stairway to Heaven -> Heaven

Stairway to Heaven backwards -> Hell

and the song Stairway to Heaven backwards can be heard as saying some weird stuff about Satan. I just think Page wanted it to be that way.

I know im not the only one that found this from that link, but listening to the backwards one, and reading along with the "lyrics" is just weird:pnoid:
lyrics \/

So here's to my Sweet Satan.
The other's little path
Would make me sad,
Whose power is faith.
He'll give those with him 666.
And all the evil fools,
they know he made
us suffer sadly.

I can't make any of them out really, aside from reading the above while listening to it.

Dude, queen is awesome and Pink Floyd is just awesome. I'm sure a few of those were meant to be..but interpreting stuff from britney spears is just weird..eventhough it's funny

There have been studies for years about reverse speech. Rumors of the government using it in early years as a way of encrypting speech.

About the Led Zepplin thing, I have been a fan of them for a long time now. I have read a lot of the stuff on the net about them using reverse speech in the music they put out. At the time that Led Zepplin made Stairway to Heaven, there were activist all over the place claiming that all rock music was satanic, and that all rock music had hidden messages in them. Some of these activist also believed that if you listened to the music forward, the music would effect you in your subconscious mind and make you do as the rock artist wanted. Now, Page did dabble in the Satanic religion for some time and also studied reverse speech. Some say he wanted to make a point with the song Stairway to Heaven, to make a song that sounds all loving and religious forwards... but once played backwards you get a whole other song. In the song he says that words can have two meanings. Dog forward would say Dog, but in reverse Dog would say God... You get the point.

Like I had stated in my last message on this topic. I have a song that was recorded in our studio. We were messing around one night and decided to reverse the song. Now the guys that did the song, didnt try to find words that would have meanings forward and then backwards. Studies have also showed that the subconscious mind will speak through writing and if recorded and reversed, it would be noticeable.... I can honestly believe this... crazy or not...

If any of you wanna hear the song... Here is the clip... I didnt take the time to ever write down all that I could make out, but you can hear some things in it. Put on some head phones and crank it up...
