I was listening to a lot of Beatles music Sunday and Monday since they were in the news a lot. Their song "Rain" was made with forwards and backwards bits of tape, so you hear the same chorus with both "raaaaaaaain" and "niaaaaaaaar".

Does 'Work It' by Missy Elliott count? :p

I'm a big Missy fan, and she says "I put my thang down flip it and reverse it" backwards in the chorus.

Things like that are what set Missy apart from other artists, and ultimately put her in a 1 person genre. Go missy! :D

I only listen to music playing backwards...

by doing so, I can better hear the evil messages that are hidden within the tracks which want to make me go take drugs and kill my self in a satanic kind of way... :eek: :rolleyes:

I always do that on my Pat Boone, Creed, and Jars Of Clay records... those guys are frikken evil folk, damnit!!!

:eek: ;) :D

Yeah I also like it when you make them talk really fast and it makes it sound like Chipmunks or something...

I dont know if you guys ever heard of the band called smash mouth (the band that did the opening scene for shrek) well if you play their song in reverse when the song is 2:27 in (its been playing for 2 min 27 secs) then you can hear the song say "What a loser you are" :p

The only time I've ever listened to any song backwards was just to hear what Pete Buck's backward solo on 'What's The Frequency Kenneth?' actually sounded like. :)

But that's it. ;)

There's a song by Weird Al called... "What About Larry" I believe that if you play a part of it backwards it says that you have too much free time on your hangs.

ok it took me a while to figure out how to open mp3s (import with quicktime?) but I can't figure out how to get them to play backward.
edit: nevermind I figured it out. command + A then filter, backwards

it says "start to smoke marijuana"

open up Sound Studio (should be in applications folder)
File > Import with QuickTime, then select the song. It will take a few seconds to open. Then Select All (command + a ) Then Filter > Backwards

Oh, that's why I couldn't figure it out. My rev B 12" Powerbook currently running Panther 10.3.4 didn't come with Sound Studio.

I can't remember the song or band, but there's one that goes "little lamb, little lamb, Mary classic" when played backwards. Not particularly interesting but it's the best I have.

The song Pry, To by Pearl Jam on Vitalogy, when played backwards includes the phrase Pete Townshend oh you saved my life. How true.

An early Anthrax song: Efilnikufecin.
Danzig in his Samhain days had some backward parts.
And there's an infinity of reverse guitar and drum parts.

My friend and myself did this. We used to play guitars (and whatever was lying around) and sing, and then we'd make a copy of the tape, take it out and put it in backwards, and then learn the songs that way.
Sometimes we'd take a commercial song we liked and learn it backwards, change the lyrics to something new and have our own song.

Another cool thing was to take 33rpm albums and play them at 45rpm. Not as daft as it sounds, there was a Led Zeppelin song which was recorded at 33rpm, made sense when played at 45rpm.

I always wanted a sound rack for guitar and vocals which would have a delayed reverse reverb. I got it working in a shop one day and they asked me to stop because it was freaky. The sound came out normally, and then the reverse reverb kicked it, playing it again, but backwards.

I also broke a video camera by hooking it up to the TV, and videoing the TV. The feedback is basically an zoom into an infinite black and white fractal. Way cool. But it burned out the CCD.

*Sighs*... those were the days...

I did that with a camera too. How long did you have it on for it to burn out the CCD?

It was an S-VHS recorder, and I filled a tape with it. So, including experimentation, I'd say three or four hours.

Needless to say I'm more responsible now.

The song 'Darkness Of Christ' by Slayer off 'God Hates Us All' has a lot of backwards speech... sounds pretty cool :-)

just tried the sound studio thing after wondering for a few years what all that noise was at the beginning of the album.... It's a secret message!

thanks!
