You’ve heard them SO many times, you can probably sing B-52s lyrics without hearing Rock Lobster or Love Shack. But can you sing them backwards?
Unlike like The Beatles backwards technique called backmasking, you won’t get any deliberate (or accidental) secret messages.
So why then? WHY NOT!?
(And look out for Mama Ru, shakin’ it in reverse in Love Shack…)
Watch & Listen.
UPDATE: It has been pointed out to me that Detour through Your Mind, from Bouncing Off the Satelites does have a passage that fades out at the end that is backwards, that when reversed says,
“I buried my parakeet in the backyard…oh no! You’re playing the record backward. Careful, or you might ruin your needle….“
