Why do people play records backwards, obviously hear weird sh!t, then put their own words to it? How bored must they be? Does this only happen in English? Does German or Chinese singing play satanic messages (in their own language) when reversed?
If these recordings were meant as secret messages, how clever of the musicians to write songs, which when played backwards give another message.....lol...., you couldn't do it if you tried!
I can imagine secret labs where employees would be spinning test pressings backwards and listening to the secret messages to spread the word of conspiracy! Haha!
Backmasking (also known as backward masking) is a recording technique in which a sound or message is recorded backward onto a track that is meant to be played forward. Backmasking is a deliberate process, whereas a message found through phonetic reversal may be unintentional.
Backmasking was popularized by The Beatles, who used backward vocals and instrumentation in recording their 1966 album Revolver. Artists have since used backmasking for artistic, comedic, and satiric effect, on both analog and digital recordings. The technique has also been used to censor words or phrases for "clean" releases of songs.

In hearing him sing lately, I think his voice died in 1977.
Insert second line here.

This is the first time I've read about this conspiracy in years!

That was a pretty interesting site you linked to. I read it for awhile. The one thing that really struck me about the pictures were the fact that Pauls hair always seemed to part, or go over the eyes to the right ear, where the Fauls always seem to go to the left. The foot thing was rather odd as well. The photo in the beginning with the ear piece missing was strange too.
I remember when the news came about about Paul being dead and the fact that there was a lot of ummm inuendos about it. Never thought much more about it till now.
As far as what this thread is about, I have to say, now I am curious about the movie just to see what there is to see.
Things that make you go hmmm

I did extensive digging on this a while back and it was really fun to say the least.
There are a lot of odd things that can be considered clues in some of their songs and even on album artwork.
I don't know if it is true but its fascinating none the less.
