Sunshine Jones (link above) has posted some great examples of subliminal messages in well known songs when they’re played backwards.
Led Zeppelin isn’t a surprise, the Eagles sort of makes sense and Queen is slightly unexpected, but Britney?
Of course she must listen to her own songs quite a lot during rehearsals & appearances, so who knows how it affected her over the years. What are the odds on other songs referring to hammers and Philips LadyShave?
Anyway, I’ve not tried the originals for myself, but it sounds fairly convincing. And there must be other examples. Maybe Bryan Adams’ blockbuster “Everything I Do” had a message designed to keep it at number one for months on end. I can think of no other reasonable explanation…

For some reason it also reminded me of several drunken dates from years gone by…

Let’s hope Bomber Brown & Bryan Robson’s shaggy perms remain a thing of the past too!

I was lucky enough to see Laurie play a few times for West Brom and he had a bit of everything. Pace, skill, balance and a surprising amount of strength. I think the comparison with Cristiano Ronaldo is a good one, although Laurie had better dress sense.
I can also see what people mean about his unfulfilled potential, but perhaps his real legacy was breaking down the racial barriers that existed within football to give us the multicultural game we have today.
I can recall 12 from one side and 18 from the other. Good and bad are only perceptions of reality, so you don’t need to know which is which…
