Thank you Alan you are SO cool! I agree with the forwards thing. Backwards it sounds like "I will uh you like a superman." I definatly hear superman. Awesome.

To be honest, I think you can train your ears to hear any of these variations.

My point exactly.

If Paul said in his book (and he does) that what was actually said was 'couldn't have been any other way' as Sadie4 provided, and in lieu of an absence of any other evidence...then that's what was said, frontwards, regardless of what it sounds like to different people.  And backwards it says nothing.

Once the phrases get around that 'this is what is said' the ear natuarally goes to that.  If you were not told beforehand what to listen for there would be wildly varying interpretations.  IMO (since I have no scientfic study to prove it).

 John saying Cranberry sauce?
Up until it was revealed to be cranberry sauce, I thought I heard
I buried Paul.
It's true, you do hear what you're told you'll hear.
Still sounds more like I buried Paul than cranberry sauce to me.

You SURE it's not on the NA one? I heard it on CHUM-FM in 1974 or so, on the Larry Green show...

You REALLY SURE???

Exactly.  Audiol illusion. (I made that up!)

I always heard I buried Paul too, and when I read he'd said 'cranberry sauce' I didn't believe it because I could hear it (after years of conditioning myself to hear the buried line).  Once I finally heard the outtakes, where the voice doesn't fade and where there are fewer instruments in the way, it is CLEAR that he says 'cranberry sauce', not once but twice.

Backward message at the end of

I'm so Tired?


Mister Charlie, is it just John mumbling or is it anything that sounds like the rumored

Paul is dead, miss him miss him?


(I'm sure this was discussed elsewhere before but since I'm pretty new I didn't see it, so please forgive me)

HI DR NICK!!! (sry somebuddy had to do it)

Ive always thought the backwards one at the end of Im so tired did sound a lot like "Paul is a dead man, miss him miss him".  I wish i could post a link to a Paul is Dead site i was at, it had all the backwards messages there for you to hear.  Sometimes the messages werent even backwards, I mean "The Walrus was Paul",

I believe he was just mumbling John-isms, but this one realy DOES sounds like it...again, probably because one expects to hear it...but it is not in any way fashioned to do so...it doesn't sound like him clearly saying the words, it's backwards and tentative.  But cooll I guess.

Well then what did the Beatles actually admit to doing? I mean, there's just too many coincidences!

Not really.  It's only when people start to spread rumors of interpretations rather than facts.  That's the whole point of Glass Onion, a slap at the fans who keep playing the label backwards looking for clues to...what?  The secret of life?

Sometimes in life there are simple coincindences.  Yes.

Right. I suppose. Their music so overanalyzed you can come up with just about anything.
