Entries Beginning with B

"Baby You're A Rich Man," The Beatles
In the fade-out of this song from "Magical Mystery Tour", the Beatles sing "Baby, you're a rich man, baby, you're a rich man, baby you're a rich man, too." However, at the very end of the song, if you listen carefully, it sounds like they're singing "Baby, you're a rich fag, baby you're a rich fag, baby you're a rich fag Jew." This would be a reference to their manager, Brian Epstein, who was gay and Jewish.
Sexy Sadie
"Bawitdaba," Kid Rock
After he says "and the chicks with the beepers" you will hear beepers in the background.
"Behind the Crimson Door," HIM
The text Ville mutters during the song are a finnish poem by Timo Mikka called Kadodettu.
"Bet On It," Zac Efron
When you play most of the song backwards, you can hear "Bet on us," and in part of the song, you can hear "Ay gvalt!" Overall, "Bet on It" sounds Yiddish when played backwards.
After the last listed track ("The Pendulum's Promise") there is silence for a few minutes, then Violent J and Shaggy 2 Dope have a "putdown" contest, then there's a track possibly named "Right Here". Then there's a recorded phone conversation.
Aladdin N. Sayne
"Black Mountain Side," Led Zeppelin
The song starts during the fade-out of "Your Time Is Gonna Come" (the previous track on the album.) This is pretty hard to work out if you don't have a track counter, but you can spot it if, say, you have the CD reissue of the first Zep album.
A Stranger
"Blessed With a Curse," Bring Me The Horizon
At the start of the song, you can faintly hear a man speaking through static; he is reading from Revelation 20.
"Blinded In Chains," Avenged Sevenfold
And in another part, in the background, you can hear someone say "I see another side in you but there's not much more I can do from on the outside looking in your government is listenin' to push you on the story of immortal father mortal son give them your mind and all your wealth the cycle will rebirth itself"
"Blinded In Chains," Avenged Sevenfold
In the background of one part you can hear someone say "And as clowns you follow suit behind the blood between the red and white and blue but it's too deep for you to see and everyone eventually will take the step cause it's in sight you take the left I'll take the right I feel the hate you've built for me and I say pay attention baby"
"Brain Of J.," Pearl Jam
At the very begining, you can hear one of the recording studio workers say "1,2,3,4,1,2,3,4". A few seconds later, you hear the same man say "Yeah. 1,2,3,4,1,2,3,4,".
