In an interview Freddie said they never hide secret/subliminal massages, only Brian did it in a few Queen songs.
Do you now that songs and what are the messages?
Sorry, i read this interview years ago and don't remember more of it.

Yes.

Whenever you play ANOTHER BITES THE DUST, it makes everyone want to Smoke Pot

Whenever you play ONE VISION, it makes everyone want to Worship the Dark Lord.

Whenever you play I WANT TO BREAK FREE, it makes you wear ladies undergarments.

Whenever you play THE MIRACLE, it makes you want to kill small helpless kittens.

Those are the only one's I've had problems with.

When you play TATDOOL backwards, it really says "You're a fag" at some point. How rude of Roger to place that message in there, oh God I hate that homophobic wannabe-drummer.

1) The most famous of course is Another one bites the dust which contains:
et unoooo ta smock mar war nawr.
Which is slugonavian for "Mustapha Fahrenheit replaced Freddie in 1980 clues are there...."

2)Delilah, when played backwards turns into a beautiful song Called Never Forget, treasure(d) moment(s) covered it.

3)If you pause the Calling all girls video just at the right time you will see Freddie give a little wink to the camera, you will notice his shirt has a very faint picture of John Deacon on it, in support of his solo album "man in the shadows" Here's a screen shot: http://oi41.tinypic.com/9hm6q8.jpg

if you play the second verse of "somebody to love" backwards you can clearly hear:
"treasure moment are the second coming of queen, tranqvilla rock for evermore"

On a slightly more serious note, I've never really understood how people even go about saying that songs played backward sound like satanic messages or various other bad things. Why would a writer go out of his way to build a song around something that sounds like something else backward? You would have to be a pretty clever and/or stupid songwriter to actually do that. I wouldn't even know how they would go about making phrases that sound satanic backward, where would I start? Also, not once has AOBtD made me think about pot, nor has Stairway to Heaven or any other one of a large number of songs with supposedly satanic messages made me want to worship satan. Backward masking, even if it does exist, has no effect at all.

Then again, I'm probably giving all those conspiracy theorists too much credit.

Those song you posted aren't Brian's songs. And it don't be necessarily reverse a track to find a hidden message. An example, Starlight have ''TITS'' in morse code, so when the audience clap - clap clap - clap - clap clap clap - basically are saying ''Tits'' to the entire world.

You know, i'm searching for those things, not stupid satanic massages.

The Cosmos Rocks played backwards ... is better than it played normally.

WWRY played backwards used to say "Paul Rodgers was Fred's favourite singer". Now it says "Paul Rodgers is a knobber"-- signed Brian May.

actually, the "satanic messages" thing is nothing new...early zep and even beatles tracks had it

used to be called "backmasking"

there's also an Ozzy track on one of the first two albums - can't remember which where i remember that on hearing something baout Randy's guitar playing, i reversed the track and dicovered what sounds like "don't tell me i'm god you fools"
ps - Randy's guitar playing has perfect aural symmetry...listen to it backwards - it-s really good

Yeah! I was talking about a things like this, is the type of thing Brian could do! (And according to Freddie is the only one who did it) I read when Brian was young played ''Happy Birthday'' reversed to his teacher, and everybody thought it was a whole new song.

Apparently there is a Queen song where if you listen to it upside down you can hear the studio mouse sing 'is this really what Queen fans are talking about these days ffs'

So in all seriousness am I the only one who has listened to the innuendo album backwards, i used to do this alot when i was younger?
The human mind is fantastic when it comes to filling in blanks.

Bijou is pretty good, freddies lines are:
Keep running
now they're off
Hey
And they're off
Nobody’s ever seen the love in Saru
aaand I still do
Our love is there in their seats
if you love me, then say it’s by you
We may FOOOOOL you.

There’s a bit in Delilah which goes:
Delilah! You make me so very happy you give me kisses and I go out of my mind
It becomes:
You make me feel like a rebel save me from yoouu YAAA AAAAH
Meows become HIIII’s

Don’t try so hard is also very good, like a mini opera about Orpheus (Who goes to the underworld to get his wife back) until the end when it falls to bits:

ahhh
Sounds good AH, sounds good.
AAAHH
Orpheus sound’s good
Who's he who came here
To feed The snakes
Everybody gets put down
ah as he asks right now

EVIL funds this City
Follow flames Below
Evil encompasses
Oh flames below

And tomorrow
a man his heart is there a man is true/
And what man isn’t true (too)
Happiness say love, selavi
There’s no room left, say love, all out, that’s not use
I see through you, and yet I see, it's 4 years now.

AAAHH
Orpheus sound’s good
To be near death
To feed The snakes
Everybody gets put ….. oooo
ah as he talks right …. Ooo

young yields courage,
Whose marry is he and whose mired soon be
with one new DAAAAY which they’re slipping
You can find me rare ruby red slippers
few steps be careful here with really flipping
AHH its closing we must forget the lord
Quickly love

Then a bunch of other stuff i never bothered with.

Obviously it’s not this, it’s backward gibberish, but now you’ve read it here you’re going to hear it.

Listen people!

What Freddie meant was that there is no meaning in his songs. It's his "disposable shaver" attitude.

He also said, that Brian has put some meaning in his songs. It's all about lyrics, not about secret backwards messages.

After all, he just didn't want to make a fuzz about his lyrics. There is, of course, meaning in his lyrics. He just didn't care about discussing that.

with all due respect (which i know means "no due respect whatsoever")
you start off by saying "listen people!" like you have something significant to declaim

but YOU DON'T. you are only guessing, and as freddie is not here to coinfirm or refute your claim, you can't back up your claim
so we'll just leave it as a "bandied theory" and nothing more

Brian does use a lot of backmasking guitar. Try the BBC version of "Flick Of The Wrist" - the backwards guitar is simply stunning.

Now I can not speak for Freddie (obviously) but I read this to mean Brian used a lot of backwards stuff in his guitar work.

If that interpretation is correct - then it is true.
