"Fire on High," Electric Light Orchestra
After being criticized with 'Eldorado' having subliminal messages, Jeff Lynne placed a message in the song which sounds like 'Madness, madness, madness' and gibberish played forward. But played backward It says, 'The music is reverseable, but time is not. Turn back. Turn Back. Turn Back!...'
Paul Warren
"Five Sticks," Camper Van Beethoven
For some reason, this track found on the self-titled album by the band is entirely backwards, and is actually their OTHER song "The Ambiguity Song". Lyric on "Five Sticks": Everything seems to be up in the air at this time Everything seems to be up in the air at this time One day soon, it'll all settle down Everything seems to be up in the air at this time
Agrimorfee
