If you play the Ohio Players "Love Rollercoaster" song slowly you can hear a woman's scream, she was murdered in the studio. An interesting story,
though it isn't backwards.
Some of the songs in question are actually mixed to have these phrases in them backwards. However, the phenomenon known as "backwards speech"
isn't about reverse encoding, rather it is concerned with messages that are truly hidden in the song or speech. Anything that is long and drawn out
(such as The Lord's Prayer) is probably going to be the work of the people in the mixing studio purposely putting it in there and making the size of
the radio waves to where it isn't audible played in reverse (which would make it forwards since the original backtrack was in the reverse mode).
Check out the Outkast song "Roses" and let me know what you here. I'm serious though, my friend and I both heard "Your excellence isn't worth
it". Sometimes while performing this task with songs you are going to have to slow the playback speed to an incredibly slow level.
I have also tried this with "Stairway to Heaven" and IMHO, it didn't amount to anything. Other songs have been "Yellow Submarine", "Elanor
Rigby", and "Lady Madonna" in which I found little of nothing other than some funny sounds. It sounds like someone speaking in a different
language with some messed up music behind it. However, I can become creeped out just by listening to some sounds backwards (like the sounds within my
downstairs basement backwards).
My friend and I also attempted to record dead silence in my basement and the following is what we thought we heard: Three different 'voices' were
heard with one asking "they here yet?", with the reply coming from yet a different 'voice' of "They all here...all". The only sound heard on
the forward playing of the message was a faint sound of the air vent. That was creepy, but I am going to attempt a second recording of so-called
'white noise'. However, this time there is an air blowing dryer machine (we had a pipe leak, so it is an industrial air dryer) and the backdrop of
the Olympics on NBC (with possible commerical interludes).
I also recorded that Matthew Lesko guy (the one with the question marks on his suit) and we played that recording backwards of one of his commercials.
The word "free" was heard over 15 times in period of no longer than 90 seconds.
