Hidden and Backwards Messages

Back in the day, I loved the backwards tune on the Purple Rain soundtrack.

Hello...how are U

Comin coming soon.

Anybody know of any other backwards or hidden messages in any other Prince projects?

Umm just the ones that've been mentioned a million times before:

The backwards messages in Girl
On the 1999 album cover
The message in Le Grind that's so low you barely even notice it's there.

BTW, have you guys heard what is said on the original "Around the World in a Day"...the extended part. There's a guy talking in the background, not prince, and he says something, but it's backwards. Has anyone heard this?

Yeah, after '...to Tennessee' 'Don't buy the black album, I'm sorry'



There was a MTV (England) thing back in the 90ies and in it, they had a small part of hidden messages in Prince songs.
The VJ said 'creepy, isn't it?' , but I don't know which hidden messages they found. Anyone?

Don't know if this was intentional, but if you listen to the part in Kiss, "I think I wanna dance". When you play it backward it sounds like "Satan won't live forever".

In All My Dreams there is a part that's slowed down to half-speed and Prince tells you to "play my record double speed" to hear the song within a song.

shrug

(sorry I didn't articulate very well--someone else feel free to explain it better)
The check. The string he dropped. The Mona Lisa. The musical notes taken out of a hat. The glass. The toy shotgun painting. The things he found. Therefore, everything seen–every object, that is, plus the process of looking at it–is a Duchamp.

That's lengthy and i never had a clue, considering how many times i've played that album i find that quite bizarre.

Thanks, but you've freaked me out! lol

The 1999 album cover:
Turn the album upside down,...now the title 1999 becomes 666 (pointing down to Prince's name). The name Prince becomes the word evil spelled backwards.

man, I've ran a fe threads on here regarding this. P is one of the masters at backward masking. It's hard as hell to do. It takes a lot of time as well. Especially to get it to sound good. P is up there with Zeppelin and The Beatles when it comes to this. Two of the best backward mask I have ever heard from P is the intro to Let's Go Crazy. Get to the part where P says "There's something else...The Afterworld." Play that in reverse. But the spookiest shit, seriously, is the backward mask on The Time's second album, What Time Is It? Go to the end of the last track on the album "onedayi'mgonnabesomebody". When u get to the end when "We Don't Like New Wave" is shouted and u hear a bunch of laughter, reverse that and then be prepared.

Man, it's soooo much shit on that cover that's on a satanic vibe. From 81-84, P used a LOT of backward masking and occultish overtones. Ya'll don't even want to know what folks in the occult says the words "Purple Rain" REALLY stands for.
P definately went through a stage where many of his overtones had a certain slant to it. The film that him and Madonna were going to do, BEFORE UTCM was "The Prince of Darkness and The Morning Star." Just in the title alone, it reeks of occult meanings.

You want a "hidden" message? Hold your Lovesexy Cassette up to the light and check the "yes" tattoo on his thigh. Then check the credits. Then check the lyrics to "Lovesexy"

Discovered by accident in 1988.



Check his thigh and look for this:

yes.

The graphics fits too perfectly to be an accident. "It leave my Name Upon My Thigh" indeed.

I've posted it before, but until tonight I mistakenly believed it applied to the CD also, which might explain why it was never acknowledged on the boards. I even went searching for the cassette to show my wife but couldn't find it. Not even sure how I noticed it in the first place. Trust me, I spent as little time as possible looking at that album cover. smile

Freaky, huh?

It would be awesome if the CD was like that too (and the LP--but that would be super hard to do). I pulled out my cassette and it *had* to have been planned. Makes me love Lovesexy even more. yes
