What you’re SUPPOSED to hear after the jump….

PLAY ALONG AT HOME
Below are the lyrics in normal, everyday forward speak, and hidden in invisible ink are the “lyrics” when played in reverse – highlight the text and all will become clear….

• Rain (Beatles)
Forwards: Gibberish
Reverse: “When the rain comes, they run and hide their heads.”

• I’m So Tired (Beatles)
Forwards: Gibberish
Reverse: “Paul is a dead man. Miss him, miss him, miss him.”

• Darling Nikki (Prince)
Forwards: Gibberish
Reverse: “Hello, how are you? Fine, fine. ‘Cause I know that the Lord is coming soon. Coming, coming soon”

• Suck Your Blood (Prince)
Forwards: Gibberish (in background)
Reverse: “Welcome to the backmask test. Here’s a little gem for you. I really think you’re an excellent person. You have a lot of admirable qualities!”

• Eldorado (ELO)
Forwards: “Here it comes, another lonely day, playing the game/I’ll sail away on a voyage of no return to see…”
Reverse: “He is the nasty one / Christ, you’re infernal / It is said we’re dead men / Everyone who has the_ mark will live.”

• Revolution 9 (Beatles)
Forwards: “Number 9, Number 9….”
Reverse: “Turn me on, Dead Man, Turn me on, Dead Man….”

• My Name Is… (Eminem)
Forwards: “Hi! My name is… (what?) My name is… (who?) My name is Slim Shady. Hi! My name is… (huh?) My name is… (what?) My name is Slim Shady.””
Reverse: “It is Slim, It’s Eminem, it’s Eminem, it’s Eminem”

• Another One Bites the Dust (Queen)
Forwards: “Hi! My name is… (what?) My name is… (who?) My name is Slim Shady. Hi! My name is… (huh?) My name is… (what?) My name is Slim Shady.”
Reverse: “’It’s fun to smoke marijuana. It’s fun to smoke marijuana. It’s fun to smoke marijuana. It’s fun to smoke marijuana.”

• Baby One More Time (Britney Spears)
Forwards: “‘…with you I lose my mind, give me a sign.”
Reverse: “’Sleep with Me, I’m not too young”

• Paparazzi (Lady Gaga)
Forwards: “‘There’s no other superstar you know that I’ll be your papa… paparazzi. Promise I’ll be kind.”
Reverse: “Evil save us! These stars above, above… we model it on the arts of Lucifer.”

• Moon Landing (Neil Armstrong)
Forwards: “‘That’s one small step for (a) man, one giant leap for mankind.”
Reverse: “Man will space walk.”

• Stairway to Heaven (Led Zepplin)
Forwards (part 1): “‘There’s a lady who’s sure all that glitters is gold, and she’s buying a stairway to heaven”
Reverse: “Play it backwards. Hear why it’s sung – Oppositioner, who owns this earth built below? Oh, Sweet Israel”

• Stairway to Heaven (Led Zepplin)
Forwards (part 2): “‘If there’s a bustle in your hedgerow, don’t be alarmed now, it’s just a spring clean for the May queen. Yes there are two paths you can go by, but in the long run there’s still time to change the road you’re on.”
Reverse: “Oh here’s to my sweet Satan. The one whose little path would make me sad, whose power is Satan. He’ll give those with him 666, there was a little tool shed where he made us suffer, sad Satan.”"

So, how did you do? Soul still okay? Remember Towerbot’s disclaimer, and thanks for playing!

The Tower of Technobabble

Join the adventures of three geeks from different, but often overlapping, perspectives talk about pop culture, bigfoot, things they just don't get and things that make them so happy that someone should slap them.
