Play it backwards and it sounds like "Ah! Paul McCartney's dad is Superman". Seriously. a-hard-days-night-paul-10


 

You're so right.

 


That's funny! I don't have any magic sound-editing software, so I can't play every note or phrase of every song backwards. 

I laughed, because it sounds musical backwards. a-hard-days-night-paul-1

If I seem to act unkind, it's only me, it's not my mind that is confusing things.

Forward: Never could be any other way (eerie, given the climactic tone of ADITL)

Backward: Something somebody told you you would hear. If you listen for the Paul is Superman thing, that's approximately what you'll hear; other people hear gibberish because they don't buy into all that.

Forthright: We're reading too much into this.

Right on: Paul said he had no idea how that got onto the album.

Right, but...: I still need to listen to it for the album to be complete for me.

Finally: Happy gninetsil! apple01 (that was "listening" backwards...did you catch that? Let's play it back one more time...)

Forward: Oh crap, the album is finished.

Backward: Oh crap, the album is really finished because I'm ruining the vinyl.

And that, my friends, is proof positive that having the HMS Zigster (or the Zigginator, your choice) back in fleet is a good good thing. And that is also the reason I don't play Rev. 9 on my vinyl White Album backwards.

I can hear something like "Never could be any other way" but who knows.....we are never going to learn what the inner groove really says...

p.s  the part creeps me out a lot especially at night so i always pause the album some seconds before that.....

I think it's easiest (if unsatisfying) to just accept the fact that it's "really" nothing at all, just gibberish!  I love all these different interpretations though...I always imagine I'm hearing "Mabel Lucie Attwell out her way" or something similar.

Oh, and the best is when you hear something that is so not when they say, such as, like just happened to me, "Tim Horton's is the best."

I remember the first time I heard the final piano chord fading away while wearing headphones. It was like 2 or 3 in the morning and pitch dark. When I heard the creaking chair, I must have jumped a mile off the couch because I thought someone was sneaking up behind me. I still get chills when I hear it today.

Very cool.

I wanna hear more anecdotes about people playing "Abbey Road" for the first time ever and being startled by "Her Majesty"!

a-hard-days-night-ringo-8 It was not the first time ever, but yes after many years of not listening to Abbey Road. I laughed so hard when I heard Her Majesty and I was like "yeah, now I remember" a-hard-days-night-john-2

The sound on the inner groove of Sgt Pepper is actually some people laughing and some words by John I think cut into pieces and mixed in a wrong order.

That's the reason it sounds like "never goose be having hoplva"... (that's what I hear...)

No, I disagree. It's just the Beatles experimenting, and that's what they did in the whole album.

Nope....i can not accept this, this weird sound ,which i believe freaks out everyone here, destroyes the masterpiece "A Day In The Life"...you are so happy and have peace in your mind while you are listening to the piano's note at the end of the song...then after this, the inner groove comes and devastates the serenity you already have...

Hmm, no, I'd bet there's more lovers than haters on this forum! And even if it detracts from ADITL (which I don't believe), it adds to the LP as a whole.

a-hard-days-night-george-1 Well... Sgt. Peppers is probably my least favorite "later period" LP. But not because of the gibberish... I think it sounds first kinda "I never kiss he any other", and backwards "We will coughy nah Exis' brothers"

I'd agree with Vonbontee.  The groove adds to the fun, experimentation and groundbreakingness of the album.

Originally it was a gag, not just 35 seconds of weirdness. You had 1) the dog whistle to bug dogs 2) the needle on the lp would forever remain playing the groove until the listener went and picked up the needle off the record (unless the needle arm had an automatic release feature).  A joke that that has been lost to cassettes, cd and the digital age.

Cut the groove off ADITL, loop for 20 minutes, stick it back on, and then play the album. 

 

To listen to ADITL i play the 'clean' version found on the Blue Album; no crowd over the guitar at the beginning and no pepper groove. Also works far better on playlists.
