Entries Beginning with W

"Waitin' For A Train," Beck
At the beginning of the song for the first 30 seconds, the man says "I'm an alien from another sphere. The thing I like about the Earth is the range of colors, fantastic to mundane, brilliant to dull. As I was penetrating the ozone, I perchance to notice the orange peel like quality of light playing upon the ocean. I got to go right now. Someone is videotaping me in my spaceship."
Mickey D.
"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.
"Weezer (The Green Album)," Weezer
Weezer's 2001 album often known as The Green Album is home to a perculiar hidden message. If you open up the CD case and look behind the CD tray (to see the rear back cover) and look down the spine to the right, you will find the message 'No'. This might sound weird, but perhaps not when I tell you Radiohead's OK Computer has a message in the same place that reads "I like you. I like you. You are a wonderful person. I'm full of enthusiasm. I'm going places. I'll be happy to help you. I am an important person, would you like to come home with me?". The Green Album is answering OK Computer's question, basically.
"Weird Al Yankovic," Weird Al Yankovic
Look on the inner groove of the vinyl LP version. You'll find the words: "Don't forget to eat your broccoli!"
"When I Grow Up," The Pussycat Dolls
The lyric "Cause see when I was younger I would say" when played backwards sounds like they're saying "Say what a noise say watch police sex." Add some punctuation.
"Work It ," Missy Elliot
I put thing down, flip and reverse it is actually reversed in each and every chorus in the song, the reverse lyrics are the same as the line before the reversed lines. The backwards line later in the songs say "Watch the way Missy like to take it backwards" in reverse right before the line "I'm not a prostitute but I can give you what you want"
