Standing in the queue at my local healthy burger place, I heard teenage girl say to her friend "this is the song, that if you play it backwards, it plays satanic messages" Her friend asked what the song was, and who it was by "oh, I don't know, I don't think anyone really knows the song or the group is"

I'm feeling a little old and bewildered today. The song was Stairway to Heaven by Led Zeppelin. I thought everyone just acquired it by osmosis.

Osmosis? That's how I acquired it.

But give it a few years - some pop "star" will have redone it into some horrendous mix of artificial beats, platinum hair and glitter.

Everyone who has *lived* knows 'Stairway to Heaven'!

Poor girl. Even I know that song.

That's really funny and sad at the same time. Wasn't it a Beatles song, not Stairway to Heaven? And wasn't it the same one that allegedly says, "Paul is dead" ? Hmmm, maybe I have the wrong backwards-satanic-message song. (hee hee)

monicker - I've got a bad feeling you are right. Did someone say cheese?

jelly - so very very true :)

thethinker - exactly - I thought everyone did

velvet - I thought that too - I'm a bit scared by the size of the wikipedia entry on it
