Entries Beginning with I

"I Am The Walrus," The Beatles
The chanting at the end ("everybody's got one"/"stick it in your jumper") yields the phrase "Ha, ha, Paul is dead" when it is reversed.
Alan the Ottoman
"I Am The Warlock," Probot
On Probot's first album, there is a hidden song at the end called "I am the Warlock". It is sung by Black Jack. Probot is Dave Grohl from Nirvana and the Foo Fighters. It is a tribute album to musicians that influenced him.
Wade Brock
"I Remember Larry," Weird Al Yankovic
In the part (near the end) when you hear "Yes I remember remember remember" over and over again, you hear Al sing what sounds like gibberish, and this gibberish is clear. If you play it backwards, this gibberish says, "Wow, you must have an awful lot of free time on your hands"
"I'm Blue," Eiffel 65
If you listen to it backwards, it sounds like "Hide the body, eat the body!"
"I'm So Tired," The Beatles

Itai Gal
"Imagine," John Lennon
When you play the line, "Imagine all the people," backwards, it sounds almost like, "The people all worship me."
"In The End," Linkin Park
If you listen to the chorus, you can hear this being said: "Oh, I live in, inside me, They live far, Is this all pretend? Oh, I live in, inside me, They will frown, For second love, Or sell." Doent make any sense to me....
"Intension," Tool
There is some unintelligible whispering that starts around one minute into the song. Reverse it and you get the following message: "Work hard. Stay in school. Listen to your mother. Your father is right."
