For years I Spanky has heard about Backward Masking or Backmasking music, playing Led Zepplin and many others music in reverse, and when done so, you are supposed to hear satanic stuff. I saw a TBN show years ago on this, Led Zepplin the Beatles just to name a couple that I can remember, were said to put secret satanic messages in there music on purpose, so what do you all think ? Below is a small article on this subject explaining what Backward Masking is.

Backmasking (also known as backward masking)[1] is a recording technique in which a sound or message is recorded backward onto a track that is meant to be played forward. Backmasking is a deliberate process, whereas a message found through phonetic reversal may be unintentional.

Backmasking was popularized by The Beatles, who used backward vocals and instrumentation on their 1966 album Revolver.[2] Artists have since used backmasking for artistic, comedic, and satiric effect, on both analog and digital recordings. The technique has also been used to censor words or phrases for "clean" releases of songs.

Backmasking has been a controversial topic in the United States since the 1980s, when allegations from Christian groups of its use for Satanic purposes were made against prominent rock musicians, leading to record-burning protests and proposed anti-backmasking legislation by state and federal governments. Whether backmasked messages exist is in debate, as is whether backmasking can be used subliminally to affect listeners.

Something else, that I found. This stuff has to be proven to me.

We've heard about "Stairway to Heaven": Play it backwards and you'll hear devilish sayings. Or so "they" said. Now, thanks to the miracles of Jeff Milner's backmasking, we've learned that it's true. But it doesn't stop with Led Zeppelin. Take a song as innocent as "Imagine" by John Lennon. Play the clip forward. John plaintively sings, "Imagine alllll the people." Then, reverse-play the excerpt. Lo and behold, he's actually saying "the people war against me"! Or how about the "Pokemon Rap"? Millions of children around the globe adore the rotund, golden fellow. How bad can he be? When played forward, the song chirps: "Gotta catch 'em all, gotta catch 'em all (yo)." But when exposed by reverse playing, the yellow beast is actually chanting: "I love satan, I love satan"! Jeff, without you we might have continued in total obliviousness. Rock on, buddy. http://picks.yahoo.com/picks/i/20060603.html

that's alot of silliness. led zeppelin did not backmask satanic words. the words backwards could be construed as whatever you want to hear. that's just ridiculous.

the Beatles certainly experimented with reversing tapes to get unusual sounds as did a number of bands. Even the M.O. did it with Sapphire Bullets of Pure Love.

As far as these songs having satanic references or phrases, I think you can hear what you want to hear. And those with an agenda will try to twist it to suit their purposes. Much like them saying that Mick Jagger uttered the word "pregnant" in the song Satisfaction in 1966, or the Kingsmen mouthing dirty unmentionables in their hit "Louie, Louie".

How many songs have you heard on the radio in your lifetime thinking the words were one thing only to find they were something else later on when you got to listen with a good set of headphones ? LIke "there's a bathroom on the right" in Bad Moon Rising ?

or " cranberry sauce" interpreted as " I buried Paul ".

and didn't Cheech & Chong say that they played a Black Sabbath record at 78 RPM and saw God ??


LOL


Peace, TED

Yes...I was a victem in the early 70's when listening to some of Moody Blues and the sort. Backward masking was known to have been a joke where people did'nt believe it was happening. Not only that but it had with it hidden motives to counteract or stimulate certain areas of the brain that fires reactionally. That in combination with a lot of 100 % premium Kona Gold smoking nearly convinced me of acting out unacceptable behavior that cost me in my early years. Thank God I'm not doing stuff like that anymore.

Also during that era was subliminal messages; split second images of Coka-Cola flashing on a movie screen during the movie. This was in attempts too subconsiously cause the audience to want to drink or snort coke, depending on your dependencies, against or for their will. Pretty heavy stuff. That form of advertising was eventually caught on and out lawed as it infringed on peoples privacy. I could go into the psychological effectiveness of it, but would'nt want to bore you.

Though some may think I'm just being goofy about stuff like that, but personally - think it was real having a possible hidden agenda capitalizing on people's psychological craves and unfortunate weaknesses...In orther words, we were played on rendeer

Hi, Rac,

Great to read you here again... I for one believe this stuff happens. I think the bigger question would be why not? rather than why? Lots of twisted people in the world with a likewise agenda. I think Ted makes a very point about people misunderstanding the lyrics to some of these tunes. The flip side to this though is how many of us ever bother to listen to these tunes in reverse?

I can't say what's happening with some of the more classic tunes mentioned here but some of the metal music definitely has it. I've heard it plain as day. People do crazy things...

Great to have you back, Rac! Laughing

To think that words spoken backwards could affect a person's behavior is ludicrous. Like some backwards subliminal message is really going to affect a person's decision making. Your brain wouldn't turn it backwards and make sense of it for one thing. And then blaming behavior on outside influences and not the person doing the acting out. If a person allows messaging to control their behavior what does that say about the person? Each person is in control of their own actions and choices. I see propaganda all the time on many levels in plain sight and don't act out because of it. I would be more worried about the clear hate speeches made every day over the air waves rather than backmasking. This is a bunch of phony baloney.

LOL!! Kenny, I think you're totally missing the point here. Flip Wilson used to say in some of his comedy skits: "The devil made me do it". But you're right, like the devil, these messages cannot MAKE you do anything. But they do have strong influence over those who are weak and susceptible to their suggestions.

I'm sure you've heard some years back how these kids were killing one another by acting out scenarios from the video game "Dungeons and dragons". Does that mean that the game MADE them kill their friends? No, but the fact is that they were open to the game's negative output thus making the suggestions themselves a dangerous issue along with those actually committing the suggested acts.

Now as far as this subliminal message thing goes, getting movie goers to drink coke and buy popcorn and candy, I can't say. I don't know what the studies on this (if any) show. But I cannot sit here and rule out that it's never happened just because it doesn't make sense or because it's never happened to me or anyone I know. That pediatrician that was just arrested for having sex with those innocent babies, that doesn't make sense either. But it happened didn't it?

We can't lump everything and everyone in the circle where we roll. There's a lot of stuff going on that's beyond us. And denying a given situation or incident doesn't make it NOT be what it is just because we don't want it to be.

So in short, YES! Words spoken backwards (as well as forward) can absolutely effect a person's behavior.

17Backward Masking or Backmasking music Empty Re: Backward Masking or Backmasking music on Thu Feb 25, 2010 1:32 pm

no point other than it's bizarre.

my original point is a person's brain is not going to decifer backwards words embedded in music. Once it is spun backwards yes, if there is backmasking then you can understand it and it's a game for people to play.
As far as subliminal messaging that is a different game. But no way is backwards talking going to be intelligible without reversing it to understand it. So it's just a stupid way of getting people to spin music backwards which is perverse anyway. it makes music making a joke and a novelty geared towards subverting the original function if you can get kids to play along.
like someone was sending secret messages as in code.

But then IMHO if someone believes in an entity like the devil then so be it. I believe it is a cruel trick to teach people these types of lies to get them to behave. The devil is just symbolic of ignorance and is an early science fiction fantasy. Satanic groups are just mislead morons

Well, as stupid and perverse as it may be, someone must've done something right. It's here and folks know about it and have played these tunes backwards to hear this stuff. In getting that which is stupid and perverse discovered and heard, then I would have to say that the designers were successful in accomplishing their goal. Here's my point:

The fact that it's stupid, perverse and has no musical merritt is beside the point concerning those who created this. I'm quite sure that I'd be safe in guessing that protecting the music from becoming a joke and a novelty was not an immediate concern of theirs.

It's out there and it's been heard and even acted upon... Mission accomplished!

Satanic groups are just mislead morons

To mislead... The very platform from which he operates... You know more than you realize. Shocked
