Music Trivia -> Backwards Messages -> O

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 O

"Ogre Battle (from Queen II)," Queen
It's not actually a backwards mask, but rather a "palindrome" (e.g. level, noon). The opening part of the song, from the beginning until Freddie Mercury starts singing, sounds exactly the same whether played forward or in reverse.
P Smith
"Oh Yeah," Can
The vocals in the first 3 minutes of the track are reversed. Sorry, I can't find a transcription of the text on the Internet.
