In 1990, Welshman Steve Briers recited the entire lyrics of the Queen album "A Night at the Opera"-BACKWARDS. It took him just under 10 minutes.

Try it :D

Is this with the words in front of you, or from memory? :s

In one of the Guinness Book Of Records there's a photo of the guy doing it and he's holding the ANATO lp inner sleeve, clearly reading the lyrics.

And I guess it would be letter-by-letter, and possibly also word by word.

So it would either start "swolb dniw eht yaw yna" or "uoy kcus ym doolb ekil a hcheel".

You're right there, but I am not enough of a nut, or idle enough to attempt that. Interesting prospect, though :P

Well I've got God Save The Queen covered. :) I just had an idea: Has anyone actually played the opera section of Bo Rhap backwards? I bet it's cool :)

What about the parts in The Prophet's Song? Must've taken him most of his time.

You're definitely not a true Queen fan (or you're just not truly crazy, I'm not sure which) unless you can recite A Night At The Opera backwards!
