Entries Beginning with S

"Save The Life Of My Child," Simon & Garfunkel
During the instrumental break, you will hear 'Sound of Silence'.
Paul Warren
"Say Goodbye (Song)," Chris Brown
If you reverse it, you can hear in the chorus: "I dont give a give a... I dont give a give a... Have a guess!" Wierd.
"Several Species of Small Furry Animals...," Pink Floyd
If you play it slower, you can hear Roger Waters say "That was pretty avant garde, wasn't it?"
Tom "The Deke" Ammon
"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.
"Shining Collection," Iceman
Near the beginning of the chorus, you hear "monkey" when played backwards.
DJ Blaze
"Slappy!," Green Day
On the Slappy! 7" record, if you look closely on the rim of the artwork on the A Side, you can see that is says, "Might Bleed Today".
Optimus Lime
"Slappy!," Green Day
On the Slappy! 7" record, if you look closely on the rim of the artwork on the B Side, you can see that is says, Cool Slapped Out
Optimus Lime
"Sleep Dirt," Frank Zappa
This album is said to all be instrumental. But at the ending of the song with the same name as the album you can hear two voices: "Heh! Gettin' tired? No, fingers got stuck!" Those are the only lyrics.
Clever Name
"So Long, Frank Lloyd Wright," Simon & Garfunkel
Near the end of the song (about 2:55) you can hear Paul Simon calling out "So long, Arty". The song was written for Art Garfunkel (who sings it) because Art said Paul Simion couldn't write a song about his favorite architect. It was the last song they recorded for a long time, so the 'so long' was true. The song is as much about Art as Frank.
"So Yesterday," Hilary Duff
if you play the part where it goes, "At least not today, not today, not today, cuz-" and reverse it, it says, "Hail this Nazi lane, Nazi lane, Nazi lane..." (FYI: i don't like Hilary, so i called it it.)
"Spieluhr," Rammstein
When you play the song backwards, in the chorus you can hear Till say "I will eat a lemon, ja."
"Stairway To Heaven," Led Zeppelin
Oh here's to my sweet Satan. The one whose little path would make me sad, whose power is Satan. He will give those with him 666. There was a little tool shed where he made us suffer, sad Satan.
"Steam Machine," Daft Punk
If you listen with headphones, you can hear the robot voice saying "Elodie Bouchez" faintly throughout most of the song. She is is the wife of Thomas Bangalter.
"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.
"Story So Far," New Found Glory
well, at the end of it new found glory forgot to shut the mic off, so it goes on for like about 20 more minutes and then goes into the beginnin of understatment for a second then some other weird song
"Strawberry Fields Forever," The Beatles
Listen to the end. After the fade-out/fade-in, you hear a low, distorted voice, saying "Cranberry Sauce." But it easily sounds like "I buried Paul", contributing to the "Paul is Dead" rumor of the late 60's.
"Sweet Home Alabama," Lynyrd Skynyrd
At the start of the second verse, just after Ronnie Van Zant sings "Well I heard Mr. Young sing about it", turn up the volume - and you know what I mean, VERY loud - to hear another band member singing the phrase "Southern Man". Then, for the rest of the gap and after the next line, you'll hear the same member singing more of the Neil Young song of the same name. They originally recorded the part from "Southern Man" to refer to Neil Young, but they later decided to leave it out so as not to annoy him. It was, in the end, left very deep in the mix.
A Stranger
