Old But Good: Backward-Masking "Satanic Messages" on Rock Records

Seriously, Stairway to Heaven really is pretty creepy backwards. I remember listening to it backwards in high school, and thinking, "Okay, I guess the people making a big issue about this do sort of have some reason to be suspicious." I mean, it's garbled and really he's not saying anything backwards at all, but if you're willing to believe, you can catch something that sounds like "One little child for Satan" and "He gives us six-six-six."

But of course it has to be accidental. The lyric -- heard in normal forward mode -- is just too good. It's just not possible that someone could intentionally write a great lyric that plays a "Satanic message" when heard backwards. No one's that talented. Not even Jimmy Page.

Unless... he really did forge a pact with the Fallen One.

No idea what the hell I'm supposed to be hearing on the other tracks. Another One Bites the Dust sounds just like you'd expect it to sound backwards-- just a bunch of backwards gibberish, for example.

Thanks to The Fat Kid.

Ultimate Score Update: Okay... Hit Me Baby One More Time is a must listen.

No getting around it... it sure does sound like she's saying "Sleep with me, I'm not too young."

Not sure why she needed to make that a subliminal message... the song and the video conveyed that message quite, errr, liminally. Sort of like including a backwards-masked subliminal message like "Air is something you should probably breathe, and try to eat some food and drink some water, or else you could die or something." What's the point?
