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.

This is another song that is completely backwards! Words that can be discerned when played backwards include lyrics from Zappa's "Sofa Number 2", and some ecstatic speech from Moon Unit Zappa in her "Valley Girl" voice. Found on the album Them Or Us.
Forwards: You can't stop the motion of the ocean or the rain from above you can try to stop the paradise we're dreaming of but you cannot stop the rhythm of 2 hearts in love to say that you cant stop the beat you cant stop the beat you cant stop the BEAT! Reverse: BREATHE! Mama, i can't breathe i can't breathe, i cant breathe... Pretty scary, huh?
Pink Floyd's Roger Waters has been leaving a message on the answering machine and played it backwards [than normal] like..."Congratulations, You have just discovered the secret message. Please send your answer to 'Old Pink', Care of the funny farm, Chalfont" until the voice was interrupted [forwards] like "Roger, Caroline's on the phone."
