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


Does it work with the LP? I guess not...

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

Hello...how are U
I'm fine cuz I know that the Lord is comin' soon
Comin coming soon.

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

There's this website that has all these mp3's on it, and on there they have the Darling Nikki message reversed so that he sings foward. I'm pissed now because I can't find the website!! And what the hell is P saying during that guitar solo on the LGC extended version? I can't make it out at all. And that shit in Rebirth of the Flesh scared me the first time I heard it.

Welcome, this is where I live
This is where I dream my dreams
2night we'll make love until the world stops turning
U're small but very strong
U move like a cat: quickly but gentle
So insane
He caressed her in her eyes and licked her abdomen
She shivered with delight
Over and over she nibbled his ear
U'd think it was wrong 2 have so much fun
He held her tightly until it almost hurt
But his hips, they moved so slowly
She wanted 2 stop breathing
U can feel every curve of her womanhood
U can see every thought in his brain
A submarine slowly moves through the virgin sea
Oh so slowly
She wants 2 stop breathing
U... U can feel every curve

Lisa, I'm gonna give U the brush and U're gonna paint the side of the train

She squeezes tighter as the submarine goes deeper in depth
Into the unnavigated territory
A smile, ever so slight, appears on his face as she starts 2 cry
Until they come, 2gether, slowly
They wish 4 somethin', as if they could see a parallel future in the sea
They do not speak
They only stare out the moment in time

DAMN eek I wish I could write like that.

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.

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.


icouldn't hear anything from "Let's Go Crazy" sounded like gibberish

onedayi'mgonnabesomebody: are they saying "Yeah, we're coming for you"?

Damn close. It's "Here We Come For You". On "Let's Go Crazy", I'll give u some help; "When I was a @#%#&%, there was a girl named Stella"

You know, you've mentioned this before..I've tried to hear it. I can make out "girl" "stella" and that's about it.

I remember my sister telling me that the spoken intro of 1999 had a backwards message :"Dont Worry, We don't need God"..

Her ass was probably trying piss me off

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?

Personally, I don't really believe in it. I think 99% of all those backward messages (including the ones you mention) are purely coincidental. It starts as a rumour, and manages to survive simply because most people don't have the equipment to check for themselves. (At least they didn't at the time...today, in the digital age, it's a little bit different of course)

Also, people hear what they want to hear. The power of suggestion...

If you took Prince's entire catalogue and reversed it, I'm sure you would come up with all kinds of different "messages" - but still, most of it would probably not make any sense at all.

The only "true" examples of backward masking, in my opinion, are the ones where an original track has been reversed, and what you hear is the "backwards" part - then you know it's intentional. Like in "Darling Nikki", "Baby I'm A Star" etc.

"The One" video


right, here's the hidden messages from 'The One' video, some secret writing at the edge of the black "dialogue signs" during the Chaplin intro. Very difficult to read, but Vc61 and MsJamieStarr figured it out on Hq....:


(1) Mayte was Nefertiti and 0)+> was Anhkaten so you are my slave

(2) Come back my son and rule love Prince and the Revolution

(3) Stavros is what Jesus died on not a cross

(4) Jesus is King Jesus is King Jesus is King

(5) Stavros is what Jesus died on not a cross

(6) Wendy Lisa Sheila Cat Susannah Rhonda Marva

(7) Jesus is King Jesus is King Jesus is King

(8) Come back my son and rule love Prince and the Revolution

(9) Mayte was Nefertiti and (artist symbol) was Anhkaten so you are my slave

The backwards message at the end of Darling Nikki is, of course, way more interesting than any other, as it was SUNG backwards.

Prince recorded the message, flipped it, then sung it BACKWARDS and recorded the backwards pessage phonetically.

So it is,so to speak, NOT a backwards message. It is a backwards SUNG message. I love my freaky Prince.

Everybody has there opinion and right on to ya. I know, from experience, about backward masking, which is not what P did on "Darling Nikki". Backward masking is a completely different form and a lot harder to do. BUT, it is possible, intentionally to do, because I've done it a few times myself.

Well ok, if it's true that the "Darling Nikki" stuff was sung backwards, like HamsterHuey pointed out (I didn't know that!), then I guess it's not such a good example.

Anyway, I wasn't trying to make a definition of terms here. And sure, I agree that backward masking is perfectly possible to do (here is an interesting site about those kinds of things, for instance). But regarding the before-mentioned Prince songs (Let's Go Crazy, OnedayI'mgonnabesomebody), I'd still say those are just coincidental.

Besides, why is it that backward messages always seem to be about Satan? hmmm

Again, that's cool. But uh, P didn't sing the "Hello, how are u? " bit backwards. He sung it normal and just simply reversed the tape. Many people, like yourself, truly believe that it's coincidental. I KNOW that it can happen by accident. I wrote a lyric to a song that went "She has no soul, cuz she buried her heart in a hole". Musically, and the way I sung it, sounded interesting to me. So, just out of curiousity, I flipped the reel over and ran just that section in reverse and heard, clear as day, "Sad Izabella...u should know the sound of my voice." That's the gospel truth. Did I plan that? Nope. So I know all about the coincidence factor. BUT, again, I have also placed an intentional backward mask in songs, one being about an orger on here, MinnieG. Ask her and paligap about it. I have no doubt that the songs that I mentioned from Prince were definately intentional. Those were as deliberate as the placements in Stairway. Again, though my brother, it's just my opinion.

Hey, didn't see your post. I basically echoed what u had already posted. I knew P song the part normally, and just flipped it over. BUT, I wasn't hipped to the fact that he ACTUALLY SUNG the part backwards?! I wouldn't doubt it though. Like I posted earlier, P is a fucking genius when it comes to backward masking.

In the case of that particular song, I agree with you! Regardless of how it was done...
