Wanna know what's kind of weird? "North" songs reversed

Postby the_platypus » Sun Nov 24, 2013 2:42 am

Clearly not the most profound of discoveries (any song played backwards is obviously going to sound weird), but I thought some of you might find this mildly interesting.

I was playing around on Audacity today and reversed "Someone Took the Words Away". You can listen to it here: http://jorgefarah.files.wordpress.com/2 ... noemos.mp3

I think the first 2 minutes of this are gorgeous. Then Elvis's vocals come in and it gets... odd. His vibrato at the end of every line makes it sound like he's having a hard time getting the words out.

Have a listen.

I tried this with Fallen and got "Bruce Is Dead" out of the left hand speaker :roll: :wink:

Elvis singing in Vulcan! That's bonkers, but interesting enough to keep me there till the end. Keep up the good work!

That DOES sound nice.

The Beatles' Sun King backwards on the Love album is beautiful too.
Loving this board since before When I Was Cruel.
