A to Z Challenge 2020 (B=Backmasking)

Backward Satanic Messages come from playing musical lyrics backward, not that many music lovers would do that. I do listen to Led Zeppelin’s Stairway to Heaven sometimes, but I am never inclined to ask Pandora to play it backwards. The people who believe nonsense like this are those who cannot see or hear anything without trying to figure out how Satan plays into it (SNL Church Lady).

Someone has so much time on their hands that they listen to music, play it backwards, and hear messages (satanic or whatever), then manage to convince others of their discovery.

…Ooh, it makes me wonder
Ooh, it makes me wonder

There’s a feeling I get
When I look to the west
And my spirit is crying for leaving
In my thoughts I have seen
Rings of smoke through the trees
And the voices of those who standing looking

Ooh, it makes me wonder
Ooh, it really makes me wonder….”

I have so much time on my hands, I write about it. To be clear, I think this back-masking nonsense is more religious crap that no one, even most religious folks, should believe.

  1. I never understood that. I remember doing that with records when I was like 12. My friends and I could never make heads or tails of it. It sounded much better forward 🙂

    1. Doggone backwards playin’ devilish crew anyway. I recall hearing about it. I may have heard something played as an example. But I could not hear what they were claiming. Further, how could one sing something correctly that would reverse as demonic worship? Crazy world.

  2. Michael Shermer does a piece on this in one of his TED talks. It important because until you are told what the backward masking says, it is mostly unintelligible. One has to be primed furs to hear what it’s supposed to be saying.
