Enmascaramiento Inverso / Backward Masking

El otro dia yo y David, vimos en Pecado Original (que por cierto cada dia me gusta menos), un reportaje que echaron sobre enmascaramiento inverso. Es decir, que en sentido normal las canciones dicen una cosa y en el inverso otras distintas. Se usa esta tecnica para insertar mensaje subliminales, secretos,... El caso mas denunciado ha sido el de Led Zepellin, con su cancion "Stairway to Heaven". En este flash podreis ver lo que dicen al derecho y al reves. David ha buscado sobre el tema y ha conseguido este otro flash, sobre nuestra "inocente" Britney Spears.

Al parecer casi todas las paginas que hablan sobre el tema son catolicas (al menos las españolas). No os extrañe, la mayoria de los mensajes subliminales son referentes al diablo. Y al parecer ocurre muchas veces con las cancionesy grupos latinos. Aqui teneis ejemplos, pero de grupos extranjeros tan famosos como los Beatles, Santana, Ray Orbison,... Mas ejemplos por aqui.

La cancion completa de "Starway To Heaven" de Led Zeppelin. Y su letra:

                                                         Led Zeppelin - Stairway to Heaven

There's a lady who's sure all that glitters is gold
And she's buying a stairway to heaven.
When she gets there she knows, if the stores are all closed
With a word she can get what she came for.
Ooh, ooh, and she's buying a stairway to heaven.

There's a sign on the wall but she wants to be sure
'Cause you know sometimes words have two meanings.
In a tree by the brook, there's a songbird who sings,
Sometimes all of our thoughts are misgiven.
Ooh, it makes me wonder,
Ooh, it makes me wonder.

There's a feeling I get when I look to the west,
And my spirit is crying for leaving.
In my thoughts I have seen rings of smoke through the trees,
And the voices of those who standing looking.
Ooh, it makes me wonder,
Ooh, it really makes me wonder.

And it's whispered that soon if we all call the tune
Then the piper will lead us to reason.
And a new day will dawn for those who stand long
And the forests will echo with laughter.
If there's a bustle in your hedgerow, don't be alarmed now,
It's just a spring clean for the May queen.
Yes, there are two paths you can go by, but in the long run
There's still time to change the road you're on.
And it makes me wonder.

Your head is humming and it won't go, in case you don't know,
The piper's calling you to join him,
Dear lady, can you hear the wind blow, and did you know
Your stairway lies on the whispering wind.

And as we wind on down the road
Our shadows taller than our soul.
There walks a lady we all know
Who shines white light and wants to show
How everything still turns to gold.
And if you listen very hard
The tune will come to you at last.
When all are one and one is all
To be a rock and not to roll.

And she's buying a stairway to heaven

PD: Gracias David por toda la info!
