Default subliminal messaging.

britney spears - hit me baby one more time

"im not too young for sex" - when played backwards.

led zepplin - stairway to heaven

mentions some stuff bout the devil - when played backwards.

queen - another one bites the dust.

"smoke marajuana" - when played backwards.

these are 3 i've heard of, dont know if they're true, spotted/ heard of any other subliminal messaging present in famous songs, do tell...

Yeah see I'm not still affected.

When you play Another One Bites the Dust backwards it sounds like "It's fun to smoke marijuana."

That's kind of funny. I'm sure most of it is just power of suggestion, though. Although it wouldn't be that hard to put subliminal messages in lyrics...

Dont know about newer songs, but the Beatles, especially after the drugs, had a few. "Help" had "Now he uses Marijuana". Then Harrison, McCartney, Ringo and Lennon went on to do solo songs with some backward masking in it later in their careers. Lennon's "here somes the sun" has something in it, somebody might wanna figure that out. And I'll have to check out that Cradle song. I never knew that, and I love those guys! I'm sure Marilyn Manson has something in his music as well. Some of those songs are waaay too catchy.

I heard it, its just a lame conspiracy theory in my opinion, in fact any backmasked track can have what appears to be a coherent message, its a trick of the mind, not any different than different people seeing different shapes in the same cloud.

whenever i listen to a song that supposedly had backwards messages, i listen to the backward part by itself without looking at the message. some people actually try to listen for the messages, and are just creating it in their mind i guess.

this is like the people who find a picture of jesus on their toast. I mean... that lump of brown crap looks nothing like jesus!! (not that anyone knows in the first place of course... but that's beside the point!)

Ahah.
The funniest one Ive heard was the Yoko Ono one.
You play it backwards , and you hear
"Hyoi Haht Hahn Hnnnun."
Which obviously says "I shot John Lennon"

..'Tards.

That's a George song.
