Entries Beginning with P

"Paperback Writer," The Beatles
Listen carefully to the backing vocals during verse 2. They are singing "Frere Jacques"--no lie!
"Poker face," Lady Gaga
This song is filled with sexual/brutal innuendo. She says it is about being bisexual and when laying with a man, he can't read her "poker face". Actually, "poker face" is about oral sex and should be spelled "poke her face". Listen to the reprise that goes P-P-P-P-P-P-P poker face. The second time through It is P-P-P-P-P-P-P F*ck her face
Willie Burger
"Pokerap," Pokemon
The line "Gotta Catch Em' All" sounds like "I love Satan" when played backwards. Creepy, yet no Satanic intentions in Pokemon.
DJ Blaze
"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.
"Powerslave," Iron Maiden
The old Derek Riggs Maiden covers always have something hidden. The Powerslave cover has Mickey Mouse in the hieroglyphs. You have to look very closely and carefully for it. It is located in the bottom right corner just above the sphinx on the left and beneath the first jackal. Either check it out on the original vinyl or on the cd cover (you'll need good eyes or a magnifying glass). You might see it on a very good scan on the web.
