I've had my suspicions about Blue Jay Way by The Beatles for quite some time now. Well, using rewind on Quicktime (suggestions of a better program?), I just noticed something odd in the first verse just before the chorus, something that sounds like "This is like that song you like". Furthermore, in the second or third verse (don't remember which one) I found something that sounds like "Let me tell you the outcome..." and the rest was to fast to follow. Using Quicktime, almost everything in the song sounded like some kind of subliminal message, only most of it was too fast to follow. Have you ever found subliminal messages in songs? Share please.
If this is the wrong forum, or was already posted, I apologize.

I bet that if I listened to the song backwards without you saying anything. I would hear nothing

On one of the songs from Watershed, Akerfeldt sings "my sweet satan, I see you" backwards in an acoustic section.

You know what's strange. When I play it forward I hear all kinds of voices.

Also found something in the second verse: "...Gonna believe what *incomprehensible* Tell me later I've got to go, Now you're *incomprehensible* touch/ed your hand".
Edit:, a bit earlier on in the song (later when reversed) there was "...Like a painting", and in the chorus I think I can hear the words Ecstasy and Naughty. It's funny, I'm sure I can hear what I wrote here in the song, but I can't be sure if it's intentional because of the poor quality of back-masking in Quicktime. Also, about Watershed, that sounds familiar, think I've heard it before.

I'd put subliminal messages like "Have sex with your neighbour" in all of my songs.

You talk about sublinimal messages.. but surely you cant take any of that in while listening to it forwards? also, i think it'd be very hard to make afew words sound like another set of words when played backwards

You're right, but that's the way I've seen them called on Youtube, and I don't know what other name to call them.

That's what makes it subliminal. If your brain can clearly process it and understand it wouldn't be subconscious.
Not that I believe in this particular form of subliminal messaging.

Unless you have some sort of robotic superbrain you won't take it in. So they're not subliminal messages, but rather hidden messages. If even that, I'm sure alot of the "words" played backwards aren't intentional. It's impossible to make a song that doesn't have something resembling another set of words backwards that people could interpret.

Pink floyd had a really cool hidden message that you could only hear while backmasking. Think it was in "goodbye blue sky".

edit: yeah

Same goes for Castles Made of Sand. Genius, am I not?
Anyway, the weird voices made me suspicious in the first place. They probably did as a joke, it sounds like them, just like Revolution 9. It's possible to do it though, I think, if you first record what you want to say and listen to it reversed, and sing what comes out.

it's either mentally filling in the blanks or intentional recording tricks the band pulled off when it comes to backmasking.

few artists can even use it creatively.

it's dumb.

Blue Jay Way is such a great song. Who cares if it has subliminal messages in it.
