40 sec into song first verse is repeated backwards it may sound like babble but its not
When the lyric that goes "Make a joke and I will sigh and you will laugh and I will cry" is played backwards, you can hear what sounds like "Is that you I saw dancing with the devil"
At the very beginning, David Was sang it reversibly like "needless to say that the party broke up" before the normal words.
If you have listened to the track "Pepper" by the Butthole Surfers, you may notice that in one part of the song there is some gibberish. Play it backwards, and you get the chorus of the song.
Before the singing starts, there is a sound of heavy breathing and backwards speech. Reversed, the text is approximately: "Julia, however, in the light and visions of the issues of Stanley, we have changed our minds. We have decided to include a backward message, Stanley, for you and all the other book burners". This was a snipe at Stanley Kubrick by Roger Waters because Kubrick wouldn't allow Waters to use audio samples of 2001: A Space Odyssey.
Right after the second verse, something that mocks the Paul is Dead rumor ("Stig is dead, honestly") can be heard. It is really Neil Innes saying "tekram ot tnew yggip elttil sihT," which is, of course, "This little piggy went to market" in reverse.

"Gotta catch 'em all!" backwards is "I love Satan!"
No word of a lie here - it was discovered that when playing the "Popeye" theme backwards you could hear "Give me a f***, give me a f*** now.". Go to http://www.reversespeech.com/music_reversals.htm to listen!
The entire song is backwards. When played forwards, the chorus begins "Bring back Howdy Doody…" It's the B side of "Indian Giver."
"Presidential Acceptance Speech," Barack Obama
It's well known that the phrase "Yes we can" reversed is "Thank you Satan". There are some other religious messages in the speech, including "Hear my composite self for the Pharaoh Zeus" ("She stood for the buses in Montgomery"), "the Lord said the new Arab sins are with him" ("when there was despair in the Dust Bowl") and "Woman, do not add - it's God's name" ("man touched down on the moon").
In the part that goes " now I know" over and over, backwards of course it says "won I won". The song has many tricks in it like that....I always wondered if there wasn't some competition going on between engineers or whomever.
