Cool and creepy backmasked songs

There are many things on the internet talking about Back masking with is a song with an audible message when played backwards. Here are just a few supposed back masked song
- Stairway to heaven ( Led Zeppelin )
-Revolution 9 ( the Beatles )
-Echoes ( Pink Floyd )
Before you see what they say you must first understand that audio played backwards is not said how it is spelled backwards. Due to this fact it can sound completely different from what It says forwards. For example the word " Cat " played backwards isn't necessarily " Tac " It could be something like " Eta " The reason that it is because the audio played backwards has to do with the pitch and frequencies the person is talking at, so me saying cat and you saying cat could be completely different. If you don't believe me or any others on youtube, then you could always download a program called Audacity and use it's tools to reverse it. I hope you enjoy

First of all, all of these songs do have back masked messages in them, and in fact there are a whole bunch of beatles songs that have back masked messages. Here are some of them
-Revolution 9
-While my Guitar gently weeps
-I am the walrus
-Strawberry Fields Forever
-Blue Jay Way
-Come Together
- And so many others!
I am extremely fascinated by back masking and has been for a very long time. In this blog i am going to list what song has a message, what is says forward, and what is says backwards. Hope you enjoy, and feel free to post a comment! These in this first category are all by the Beatles.
---Song:Strawberry Fields Forever Forward: Strawberry fields forever backwards: A pair of sleepy red mooose
Song:Strawberry Fields Forever Forward: Tree, I mean it must be high or low Backwards: I hate so many of my peers
Song: Come Together Forward: Come together! right now, over me Backwards: Heave Ho! Right now! Oh, thank the smoke
Song: Help! Forward: I know that i, just need you like Backwards: Now he uses marijuana!
There are a lot more so i will be posting a video! P.S. some of them are kind of scary ( atleast to me ) here is that video, thank you and please post a comment.


  1. 'Empty spaces' by pink floyd and 'my name is' by eminem are both pretty interesting backwards. I learned about this in psychology class it's pretty cool

  2. I dont know anything about eminem backmasking but i will research it now thank you very much. :)

  3. what exactly is a back masked song?

  4. It is any song that when played backwards says something. For example there is a beatles song called revolution 9 that played forwards is mostly gibberish and random sounds; however, when played backwards it describes paul mccartney's death and many other things. That is another conspiracy that im not going to get into, but some people think that paul mccartney is dead even though he is still alive, and the reason the beatles went along with it was for publicity and to sell more records.
