I would have thought that this would have been discussed around here many times before, but it seems like it hasn't. I don't have much of an opinion on it, but I think it's quite interesting. http://www2.memlane.com/jmilner/stairwaybackwards.htm I had heard of this before. Yet, this is the first time I actually listened to the song backwards myself. After doing so on that website I tried it myself with the original CD and it's the same. What makes this interesting is that, in my opinion, it is pretty clear to hear. I am not even a native english speaker, but I can make the words out quite easily. That weakens the argument that "you hear just what you want to hear".
