I remember a story of a guy who went to the record store to buy the new record by Sadust, but the lady from the store didn't know that band and asked the title of the song. The guy didn't know it but said he heard on the radio that it was another one by sadust
Yes, backwards.. though it's of course always been denied that anything was done intentionally. Some say you just hear it because you've been told what it says... I don't know.. I'm torn on the issue because it's quite clear to me.
I've heard weirder things before.
Like the person who thought that RHCP sang "Fly away on my cell phone." (Correct: Fly away on my zephyr.)
By far the funniest on the page I displayed was the Ressurection one. Submitted by Marie, the laughter sparked by that one just about finished me off!
For all those reverse-folk:
I think that if you were to record every conversation you had during a week and reversed it all, you may find some strange words appearing.
Similarly, if you were, for example, to reverse all the material recorded over a period of 30 years by a famous band then you may also find words appearing.
This, I believe, is what they call "coincidence". I don't think Freddie and the guys practiced reverse demonic chanting before recording their albums.
I used to kid myself that "Urgent" by Foreigner was really called "Detergent"...
Doesn't Weird Al Yankovic have the market cornered on misheard lyrics by making them into hits for himself? (Take Another One Rides The Bus for example...)
I just got the "'Scuse Me While I Kiss This Guy" claendar for 2004, and it's got a good one on Freddie's birthday (which they acknowledge!):
REAL: "Beelzebub has a devil put aside for me."
MISHEARD: "The algebra has a devil put aside for me."
Gee - can I ever sympathize!
March of the Black Queen:
"Forget your silly dogs and your lullabies"
"Forget your singalongs and your lullabies"
"Forget your synagogues" fits as well. This is actually what I thought the correct lyrics were, even though I heard 'silly dogs', I knew it wasn't right ;)
There's no time for Ross
There's no place for Ross
What is this thing that builds our dreams yet slips away,
poor Ross [...]
There's no chance for Ross
It's all decided for Ross
This world has only one sweet moment set aside for Ross
Who wants to live forever? (Especially if they're Ross)
