Music Trivia -> Hidden Messages -> R

Aside from backwards messages (which is a seperate page), bands have found other interesting ways to hide things in their music or in their album covers.

Entries Beginning with R

"Radar Love," Golden Earring
At the beginning of the first verse where it's just the drums 'n' bass, turn the volume up loud and you'll hear them singing something or other. Only just discovered this :-)
A Stranger
"Radio K.A.O.S.," Roger Waters
The entire album cover design consists of morse code symbols. Decoding the dots and dashes reveals "Roger Waters", the album's title and the complete track listing.
"Radioactivity ," Kraftwerk
At the start of this song you can hear Morse code. All of this morse code translates into the first verse of the song which starts a while after the Morse code ends.
Clever Name
"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.
"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.
"Rock the Casbah," The Clash
In the middle of the song, you'll hear a video game beeping. It was mistaken for a cell phone, but cell phones were released 10 years after the song came out.
Paul Warren
