Abbey_road_1 Help! 2004 Version

Revolution #9 backwards. Remember when the "White Album" came out and we were worried that Paul might be dead? Remember ruining our needles playing songs backwards searching for hidden messages? Remember wondering what the entire song of "Revolution #9" would sound like backwards?

Listed below are links to weblogs that reference Number Nine:


Well yes, 'Number 9' does sound a bit like 'turn me on dead man' when played backwards.

And in the same piece, if you reverse 'take this brother, may it serve you well' it comes out 'where we versed thee in perverts if-yes' or some hear 'where we immersed thee in perverts and beer,' which does conjure up a merry image.

But remember the low pitched moan at the end of Strawberry Fields Forever which goes "I buried Paul' or "cranberry sauce'? Nobody ever seems to have bothered to hear that one backwards. I did, and laughed my ass off.
