Story about this misheard lyric by: Adam T

I play in various cover bands on the Las Vegas strip. These things happen all the time, but this one was particularly funny. We definately needed a lyric look-up. It's sung correctly now.

Scary Song Lyrics:

"Love Bites"
The Lyrics:
Into your room
Where in deep sleep
There you lie still
To you I creep
...
Now you are mine
In my control
One taste of your life
And I own your soul
Why:
At first hearing it sounds like a vampire attack. A bit later it's less scary when one realizes it's really about sex.

Backwards Messages:

"Love Bites"
In actuality, the backmasked "message" played over the verse is just the verse played backwards.
Submitted by: Evan
"Beyond The Realms Of Death"
the title line can be reversed to sound like "IIIIIIIIIIII... took my own life!"
Submitted by: A Stranger
"Better By You, Better Than Me"
The phrase "do it" was allegedly hidden backwards in the song. It caused the band to be taken to court over the suicides of two teenagers.
Submitted by: A Stranger
"Love Bites"
In the first verse after the guitar break, you can hear some weird, garbled stuff behind Rob Halford's voice- it's not subtle at all. Now, supposedly, if you play it backwards, you'll hear Rob saying "Attend the church of your choice" or some such thing. This was allegedly done in response to the band's being sued for having driven two young men in Reno to commit suicide. (The band was acquitted and no damages were awarded to the families of the unfortunate lads.)
