Fun Stuff

Precisely the reason why records are a phenomenon lies in their intrinsic mystery. Records are dated technology that seems almost primitive by todays standards, and yet many can not help but be drawn to their dark and sleek design. Naturally, people have assumed that records (and the artists who made them) have some nefarious double purpose. Indeed, that is precisely what this section is about.

A curious thing happens when you force a record to spin opposite its natural rotation. Songs will actually play backwards. Music and lyrics will become distorted and piercing. Almost otherworldly. Some have even thought that this may even have been the intention of the Artist who recorded them. I will let you be the judge.

Let us start big. This is Led Zeppelin- Stairway to Heaven. This song contains many backward messages. Here is one of them that occurs right at the very end of the song. It says: "Play backwards. Hear words sung.

If you though that was trippy, here is another part of the song. It is supposed to sound like-Its my sweet Satan. The one whose little path would make me sad whose power is fake. There was a little toolshed where he made us suffer, sad Satan.

The Beatle's song Help contains an interesting backward message. The reversal sounds like- Now he uses Marijuana. The Beatles? Using drugs? Well who would have thought!

Queen- Another one bites the dust. Supposedly: Its fun to smoke marijuana. Who would have guessed all these rock stars would like to get high?
