I've read a few posts lately that say supposedly that if you play "Another One Bites the Dust" backwards, you hear It's Fun to Smoke Marijuana.

I dunno.

"ANOTHER ONE BITES THE DUST"
Queen, The Game

RUMOR: When played backward, the lyrics say, "It's fun to smoke marijuana."

FINDINGS: There is something that sounds like "It's fun to smoke marijuana" in the reversed music. It is repeated over and over. It might be rendered no less faithfully, however, as "sfun to scout mare wanna." This "message" is the reversal of the song title, which is repeated a a line in the song.

Let's make a distinction between engineered and phonetic reversals. When an artist records a verbal statement, reverses it by turning the tape end for end, mixes the reversed statement onto a master tape, and has records and tapes produced from the master, that is an engineered reversal. [I.e., it's deliberate.] When the phonetic properties of song lyrics are such that they can be reversed to sound like something else, that is a phonetic reversal. [I.e., it's a coincidence most of the time.]

"It's fun to smoke marijuana" is clearly a phonetci reversal. The lyrics are perfectly plain played forward ("Another one bites the dust"), not so plain played backward ("sfun to scout mare wanna"). With an engineered reversal, the opposite should hold true: gibberish forward, clear as a bell backward. Some are prepared to believe that phonetic reversals are just as intentional as engineered reversals--that the songwriter painstakingly planned the phonetic double-entendre. In the absence of confirming evidence, it just doesn't wash. It's too easy to find coincidences. If, for example,the letters of the alphabet are recited in conventional fashion (Ay, Bee, Cee, etc.) and reversed, at least five sound like English language words. D reverses to 'eden', F becomes 'pray', S becomes 'say', V becomes 'even' and Z becomes 'easy'.

haha yea I wouldn't bother doing that but I guess it's cool. I mean even if it was just a coincidence, I still think it's cool.
