"Dangerous," Roxette
This song is a single from the duo's smash hit album Look Sharp! Right at the end of the song as it's fading out, if you listen carefully, you'll hear Per Gessle saying, "Due to the exceptional weakness of this song, play loud". Funny.
"Live Life Loud," Hawk Nelson
About 1 minute and 15 seconds into the song, you can hear someone say "Turn that music down or I'm calling the police"
"To This Day," K's Choice
In track 6, To This Day, on K's Choice's second album, Paradise in Me, David Haas recites an excerpt from Julio Cortazar's novel Hopscotch. And if you listen you can understand what he says. But about a 1 1/2 minutes from the end he starts speaking again. I cannot understand what he says, though.
"The Power of Equality," Red Hot Chili Peppers
In the beginning of the song, you can hear Anthony Kiedis say "Hey batter batter" a few times, followed by him saying "Swing", leading into the first verse.
"Fireproof," Pillar
In the beginning of the Pillar song "Fireproof", you can hear Rob Beckley say "A, E, I, O, U, sometimes Y"
"Hot For Teacher," Van Halen
On the "1984" album right after that song is over you will hear somebody say,"Wuhf!" or something that sounds like that.
Got It Bad, Got It Bad, Got It Bad
"The Wall," Pink Floyd
If you listen very quietly at the very start of the first track "In The Flesh?", you hear the words "we came in..". Then, if you listen at the very ened of the last track "Outside the Wall" you hear the words "isn't this where?". This is done so if you play the album again straight away, the words become a question, "Isn't this where we came in?". It is also a reference to the fact the last track on the album is similar to the first track on the album, as if the Wall story started all over again.
"Rattle and Hum," U2
I've already posted about the hidden message on How to Dismantle an Atomic Bomb, but on the original LP of Rattle and Hum there is a hiden message. Look on the inner groove on side 1, you will find the words etched "We Love You A.L.K.", ALK is Anne Louise Kelly, the band's production manager.
"Gangster Trippin'," Fatboy Slim
The background voices that play a few times at the start of the song actually "we're gonna kick that gangster s**t"
"Sexual Healing," Marvin Gaye
If you turn your volume really loud, when the song fades out, you can hear "Please don't procrastinate, it's not good to masturbate …"
"She's Got Nothing On (But the Radio)," Roxette
Now here's a shocking one. At the beginning, you can hear Per Gessle say what sounds very much like, "What the f**k?" And at the end, he's moaning... exactly what was happening in that studio? I am suspicious of these two.
"The Road to Mandalay," Robbie Williams
(Note this only applies to the version which appeares on the album Sing When You're Winning). On this song, everything seems fine. But after the song has "finished", leave the song playing for another 25 minutes and you will hear Robbie say "No, i'm not doing one on this album". This was a reference to people that possibly were expecting a hidden track to fulfill that slot.
"Behind the Crimson Door," HIM
The text Ville mutters during the song are a finnish poem by Timo Mikka called Kadodettu.
"Unbelievable," EMF
This must've been one of the most played songs around the world in 1990-91 yet most people don't realise the guy in the background is actually saying "what the f***... what the f*** was that" over and over throughout the song.
"Eh-Eh (Nothing Else I Can Say)/The Fame," Lady GaGa
This is what "Cherry, Cherry, Boom, Boom" means: "Cherry Cherry Boom Boom is the pseudonym of songwriter and music producer Martin Kierszenbaum. He has previously also used the following aliases for his writing and production: B. Recluse, K-Bomb, Hennesy Williams, MK Chilly Dog and Robots to Mars." -from
Robert D. Arndt Jr.
"How to Dismantle an Atomic Bomb," U2
If you look at the bottom of the CD (the silver side) and you look near the middle, you will find the words "Miss You Sugar" (as well as the Universal logos). The reason it says "Miss You Sugar" i do not know - but certian copies of the band's earlier album 'Pop' feature a similar message in the same place that read "4UALKXXXX" (meaning For You Anne Louise Kelly")
"Feel Good Inc.," Gorillaz
During the beginning section (before the first verse), if you listen carefully, you will hear "Shut, shut the f***, shut the f*** up!" repeated a few times.
A Stranger
"Stop Drop and Roll!!!," Foxboro Hot Tubs
On the actual CD it says "Side A: Warning Do Not Play Side B" - this is because the album is made to look like a vinyl record and of cause, on a CD there is no side B, if you tried it, it would probably scratch off the ink on the CD surface.
"Does Anybody Really Know What Time It Is," Chicago
In the Third Verse, you'll hear someone talking. Don't fret, it's someone saying "People runnin' everywhere. Don't know where to go, don't know where I am. Can't see past the next step. Don't have time to think the last mile. Have no time to look around, just run around, run around and think why"? (I think this is why this song was used on "Little Nicky" to find if there's any subliminal messages.
Paul Waren
"These Days (album)," Bon Jovi
In the booklet inside the case of the album (on CD), there is a letter from Jon at the end. If you hold the back of the booklet up to a mirror you see a lot of this letter!
