And in Lady Gaga's "Poker Face," the totally innocuous line "I'm bluffin' with my muffin" turns into a shocking statement of Oedipal perversity when reversed: My nipple, my big nipple, mother squeeze. Even Miley Cyrus, who claims to be a Christian, has a message hidden in her hit "The Climb." Forward, she sings, "It ain't about how fast I get there." Backward, the same line is an ode to L. Ron Hubbard: And he got sci-fi life for thee.

If you want to learn more about the corrupting influence of popular music, you can find Backward Masking Unmasked listed used on Amazon for around one cent. Also available is its almost-as-good sequel, More Rock, Country & Backward Masking Unmasked. Highly recommended. Tanas liah.
