Hey , i fiddled around in GoldWave with the one vision song. As you probably know , in the beginning of the song you can hear a low pitched jibberish voice. it sounds like its backwards too. I tried playing it higher and reversed but I didnt hear anything. Is there a story behind it or what?

It's just Freddie saying "God works in mysterious ways.... in mysterious ways" No idea as to the story behind it.

I thought it was both Freddie and Brian.

Actually it is Freddie saying: "God works in mysterious ways..." and then Brian adds: "In a mysterious way!"

The Queen song One Vision says clearly in the beginning when played backwards... -Dear God save our children- ... then the band opens up and Freddie says... -Save us Now!- .... then Freddie starts to chaotically say... - Hear me! , hear me! , hear me! , hear me!, hey! , hey! , now! , get them out! , get them out! - ...then Freddie says - Oh hear me! I know you hear me! they rule us, rule our world now, we serve now-, then later he goes onto say - leave, go home, go home now! leave our world now! and finally at the end it says - oh sweet song, let them see this error-... all i can do is be amazed and baffled but i think Freddies is trying to save us from something really bad, who or what we may never know... "the Devil?", "Aliens?" , "Demons?" trust me when i say, that ive been deciphering this message for a month and i thankyou Freddie Mercury for caring for us that much- i take this message very seriously, i personally think its about NWO and One World Government...maybe Alien World Domination-illuminati or something-its real !!! Tupac & Michael Jackson and others died by the illuminati maybe Freddie decided to just hide a message-

Thank you, Kaylok, for some very interesting info about the intro to One Vision! I think One Vision is about the New World Order too, and that the One Man to rule the world is Antichrist.

One man - One heart, one soul, just one solution, One decision, One Voice, One Hope

One Religion - No wrong, no right (do what thau wilt)

One Direction - One World Wide Vision, One Mission

One World, One Nation, One Sweet Union


The Music Industry is so strange. Search for one of these names: Jay-Z, Beyoncè, Lady Gaga, Kate Perry, Bono, Kanye West + ILLUMINATI

Think for yourself...!

From Wikipedia:

There are various other distorted vocals as well but what exactly they say is not yet known. Even more distorted vocals appear in "Blurred Vision". Finally, a version of the beginning distorted vocals followed by other intro distorted vocals without any music playing over them, appears in the soundtrack of The Eye videogame, as Track 05 on CD 2 (The Works Domain).

Also, the live versions of the song included a different version of the intro, which starts like the single version intro, but later changes into the album version intro, but repeats the section after the vocals "Ii" near the end.


@Kaylok: Could you please find out what he's saying in those two alternative intros?

Well, all the bloody nutters will come out now. It doesn't take much.

Just one question Kaylok, if Freddie was so desperate to save us from the so-called illuninati why was it put on tape so it sounded like he was singing the bloody thing backwards. So we'd have to wait 26 years for you to come to our rescue with a translation?

I once slowed down the intro and captured Brian's voice saying "mysterious ways" but that is it.

I happened to do that a few days ago and I clearly heard Brian, as you said.

So many paranoid people here? The intro is God works in mysterious ways, mysterious ways, mysterious ways, ha ha ha ha. The rest is weird, when you speed it up, it sounds like "I want tomorrow's bacon".
I'm listening to it backwards just for fun and the only thing I understood was "once again" and "hey, hey, hey" several times.

The lyrics is about Martin Luther King and not the devil, or the illuminates, or space reptiles or whatever

Didn't Freddie sing something like "I look forward to those glorious days once again!" in one of the various documentaries containing snippets from the One Vision session?

@Kaylok: Could you please upload the backward version, so we also could hear it?
