Does anyone know how many there were and which songs? Which song is supposed to have F you like Superman and is that even true? Just wondering. My knowledge on this subject is limited!

On the UK Pepper it had a blurb (released on Anthology) that was a mishmash of sounds and voices.  It is about 2 seconds and was put into the record's runout groove so it would repeat forever or until you or the turntable lifted the tonearm.

It did NOT say 'f*** you like superman', in fact it doesn't 'say' anything.  Many people have heard many different things because it was a collection of noises and sounds as noted above. 

Backwards?  All of Rev #9.  Horrendous car crash, Paul yelling, sirens, people running and yelling, turn me on dead man...it is all there.  On purpose?  Beats me, I don't believe Paul is dead (yet).  But it is pretty spooky to listen to.

Between I'm So Tired and Blackbird is John speaking (recorded backwards) and it *sounds* like 'Paul is dead man miss him miss him miss him.'  Primarily because that's what we've been told to hear so the brain agrees.  It IS close tho, closer than the 'superman' hype.

There's more of course, but not much of any real consequence.

Thanks! So no F- you like superman ay? Heh! That would be kind of out there. It sucks that you can't do the whol backwards things on CD's. I mean, people just discovering the Beatles won't get to have the fun of trying to hear these messages for themselves. I mean, it is kinda part of the whole Beatles experience. Sort of. Although I suppose you can download them or something. Just not the same thing though!

There are freeware sound recorder programs that have Reverse settings.

AAAAAHHHHH!!! THIS NEW ONE BLINKED AT ME!  ARE YOU TRYING TO KILL US ALL MISSS MACCA.??


Yeah it is kinda hard to hear backwards messages these days.  I downloaded them all of a Paul is Dead site, but it would have been fun to try and find them for myself.

So what would you download? A Day in the Life? That's the last song. The ironic part is that I actually have the album but no record player to play it on! Oh well.

It's not ON the US record.  It is on the UK version, along with the dog whistle.

You don't have the Pepper CD?  There is a clip of it at the very end of the CD.

That you don't listen to backwards, you just listen to it to imagine hearing favorite superheroes copulating.

Rev 9 tho...and that would be a long ass download (unless you're on broadband).  Or unless you have the White Album.

Okay! Thanks for the clarification. Sorry for my ignorance on the subject! I actually don't have the CD yet. I don't know why I haven't gotten it yet!

I wasn't being peeved, I like using capital letters to stress a word.  Or maybe I'll use *'s or dashes.

ANyway, there is no ignorance here, just not informed yet. :)

Still.  I just don't want to p*ss you off and have you send some bad mojo avatar to my house.

If you downloaded the track you probably wouldn't get the backwards bit - I'll upload it for you and along with the backwards version. :)

It did NOT say 'f*** you like superman', in fact it doesn't 'say' anything.

Yes, he does say that, you are correct.  Although in other interviews he says something different. 

It does not say the superman bit. Backwards OR forwards.  That was something that was heard by others and Paul professed amazement.  For years it was also supposed to be saying '...this is the ending of the wax...'.

Just Beatle-mania.

To me it sounds like John saying "never could see any", then Paul saying "other way", with someone going, "bah-ba-bah" in the background. Any other thoughts?

Forward it definately sounds like that to me too Alan.  But backwards i think it sounds more like "Will Paul come back as superman?"
