Music Trivia -> Backwards Messages -> E

These are INTENTIONAL messages that groups have recorded and placed in their songs. This differs from backwards masking in which bands supposedly sing a song in a special way so that when played backwards a hidden message appears.

Entries Beginning with E

"eB tahT srewoP ehT," Being as an Ocean
The whole track is played backwards (hence the song title) and, when reversed, is revealed to be a song about police brutality. From the band’s 2017 album “Waiting for Morning to Come”.
In part of the song, you can hear in a voice that sounds very similar to Wierd Al's saying, "He was watching Star Wars."
The line "playing the game I'll sail away on a voyage of no return to see" can be reversed to sound like "he is the nasty one, Christ you're infernal. It is said we're dead men; everyone who has the mark will live." This sparked controversy when it was released.
A Stranger
"Empty Spaces," Pink Floyd
In the song "Empty Spaces" from the "Wall" album it says in backwards messaging "Congratulations. You have just discovered the secret message. Send your answers to, Old Pink, care of the Funny Farm Chalford, UK.
Wade Brock
"Empty Spaces(What Shall We Do Now?)," Pink Floyd
This is the weird sounds you hear just before Roger Waters begins singing. The reversed message is: "Conguratulations, you have discovered the secret message. Please send your answer to Old Pink, care of the funny farm, Chalfont..." (after which the words are incomprehensible)
"Escape (The Pina Colada Song)," Rupert Holmes
When reversed, one part of the song sounds similar to "Yes, an alien must know," which is followed by "Ah, I'm sure you'd believe that;" almost a subliminal jab at conspiracy theorists who believed in backwards masking.
