Let it be hidden message...
« on: September 05, 2004, 05:20:32 PM »

at 1:06 in the beatles song, let it be, you can hear whispering. (put some headphones on and try to hear it)

has anyone else heard this? if you have, do you know what they are saying?

Here's a list of all the errors in  Let It Be, including the whisper!

Let It Be

0:00,0:09
Drumstick clicks (LIB Album version only, not on Past Masters)

1:07 (Past Masters/Blue Album Only, not Let It Be album)
After the words "For though they may be parted," there is a whisper, possibly "Stop, John/It". Rumour has it that it's "Excuse me", as a result of John having just parted. Yes, I did spell that right. :) Thanks to Biffy, the Elephant Shrew for explaining all .... Paul does seem to giggle a little here!

Stephen Moss adds :-

This sound doesn't sound like John, unless it's a low whisper that shouldn't be picking up on Paul's mic. More likely it's from the booth; it might be the word "sibilance"


1:21 (Past Masters version only, not LIB Album)
Reported as a thump against microphone, I think it's again a plosive (breath noise into microphone)

1:46 (Past Masters version, not LIB Album)
Right channel, John or George play 3 wrong notes as they head into the solo, then stop altogether.

1:55,1:56,1:57
Three little distortions in organ solo (last few notes)

1:59-2:26 (Past Masters version, LIB Album version)
Centre, bleed of the "other" guitar solo evident in many places.

2:21
One note in guitar solo, very quiet, is wrong. Sounds like an open string being caught or released?

2:58
Piano chord under the word "Mother" is wrongly played, and quickly corrected.

 Tony Cox adds :- ... the title track drums have been doctored by Phil Spector as follows. at 0:52 ringo originally played a SINGLE hi-hat on each bar (one on BROKEN, next one on PEOPLE, next on IN etc, but Phil Spector took the whole drum track(s) and passed it through an echo unit so the (whole) drum kit repeats in 16ths, so BROKEN is accompanied by tic-tic-tic-tic... Now here's the woof:

This works well at this verse, but on the next verse the song changed tempo everso slightly. And PS never adjusted the echo, so at ANSWER 1:14, the real hihat and the echoed hihat overlap into a splurge. Secondly, going into the chorus then, he didn't turn off the echo soon enough so the drums at 1:18 is a mess.

I've been listening to it closely with heavy editing done to it and it sounds a lot like, "starship" "started" or something like that. However, it definately starts with "st"; and something in the middle is "sh" and it ends in "i-something" (like ip, it, ed, whatever)... but it also sounds like someone is saying "started" or "start it" with a heavy liverpool accent (i.e. one of the beatles)... that could be possible because a few short seconds later the drums start, and it could be someone directing Ringo... since we don't know exactly what was going on in the studio, john or george could've been mouthing to Ringo when to start the real drumming...

But who knows? I've always just noticed it as an echo... there probably was a word there that they edited out (like "oh sh*t" or something) and just the echo of it was left...

Then again, it could also be another "Paul is dead" clue :-)

Ah ha! I've got it. I finally thought to slow it down a bit and I found that it's someone saying "stop it" it sounds a little too deep to be john, even whispering but it doesn't really sound like george. it could be ringo or an echo from someone else in twickenham...

but here's a short clip of it:

(I don't know if you can hear it or not because angelfire is weird)

(Reading over the other posts: Whoops... i guess it's already been said :B well, at least i confirmed it... ?  :))

Exactly... It can't sound like "stop John," i don't think... that's because the way the vocals flow, it doesn't sound like any sound like "on" and more like "it"... hope that makes sense...
