DOES ANYONE HAVE ANY IDEA WHAT FEW WORDS ARE SAID IN THE BACK GROUND DURING THE "THIS KETTLE IS BOILING OVER" PART OF "I'm Going Slightly Mad"???

there's distinctly a voice saying something, and since this seems to be the place for enthusiasts, i thought i might ask.


I used to have several music appz and had REVERSED the backward parts of THE GOLDEN BOY (freddie mercury + montserrat caballe 1987).....

which really sounded something like
?i am a man i am a man, lamb of god be true? (really, thats what it sounded like)

the section was : "Why do i believe in you? You're destroying my world etc"


but i'm just curious what this little bit of lyric is in the Slightly Mad song

Many Thanks In Advance, and i apologize if this topic has come up already, i haven't browsed the entire site.
 
being that i'm new to this, but have loved this band since hearing LIVE KILLERS on an old casette (thanks to my brother) [c'mon...we're not in ENGLISH class, i know thats a run on sentence] i just saw so much up here with regards to collectors stuff its freakin incredible. I imagine someone's hunted down a bootlegged pez dispenser brian may head..

I already read something about Red Special Earrings...:-/

The voice says:

"Don't sit on bath taps.  Don't sit on bath taps."

Christ!

Haha....probably the best of the JOKE answers i got here...


damn.. It was in the SERIOUS postings.... i wasn't ranting some righteous indignation or tootin my own horn about what an incredible fan i am. it was a serious question. maybe someone with good ears can tell me.

No, i'm not looking to create a "Paul is dead" conspiracy hear...nor to sync the music up to any popular movies.... (wizard of oz)

PS: don't disrespect the ganja, it carries its own.

No I don't think Pittrek is joking
"It's Fun To Smoke marijuana" is the backward of Another One Bites The Dust
you should check this: http://www.albinoblacksheep.com/flash/queen  

Here's a better one from Led Zeppelin (well known for it's backward message)

Exactly !
I don't smoke that crap :) I don't smoke even cigarettes :)
What I tried to say that one of the most common "urban legends" about Queen says that the there's a hidden message in AOBTD - when you play it backwards you should hear "It's fun to smoke marijuana". The band of course denied that it was their intension and claim that the words "Another One Bites The Dust" themselves sound like that when you play them backwards

Well, believe it or not, to me it sounds like the voice is saying "this kettle is burning over"... Odd.

You sure it's not just the bass you can hear? I hear absolutely no voices, and I've listened to that song hundreds of times! Even just now - I don't hear any other voice than Freddie's...


I'm going slightly mad

Possibly. I had always assumed it was a rephrase of "this kettle is ..." but it just sounded odd. it sounded like a phrase in a regular conversational tone....so it gets drowned out.

Happens when listening to something again after a while... for years i didn't hear the chimes at the end of "you're my best friend"  after the DVD release of Greatest Flix i did.

Yeah, i had forgotten all about the "it's fun to smoke marijuana!" thing.




PS: if you play BODY LANGUAGE backwards.....IT SOUNDS BETTER!

;)


just glad it didn't turn into one of those shouting matches i've seen on other posts hahahaha

awesome.
