Hey folks.


I don't know whether any or you have tried reversing Beatles songs before, even if you haven't you'll know about some famous conspiracy theories about songs such as if Revolution 9 is played backwards, you can here a car crash and "turn me on dead man" from John. Well, I was looking at the Sgt Pepper song Getting Better earlier and a glitch in audacity caused the song to play backwards, but what I heard was quite amazing.


It basically sounded like another song, I could here words such as "walrus" and "the worst mistake" etc. I know I Am The Walrus was after the song in Magical Mystery Tour but I couldn't help notice how prominent it was, it didn't sound like a jumbled mess at all.


I'll put a link below, tell me what you think!

Thanks for that.  I heard "the worst mistake" a few times, but I didn't catch "walrus". I agree, it sounds like another song with a nice melody -- and it could be fleshed out to be quite a good pop song, if someone ironed out the backward swooshing sounds (though on the other hand, they could be incorporated as some kind of avant-garde effect).

The following people thank Pineapple Records for this post:
