Fire on High (ELO) Easter Egg - Down Home Town

At the beginning of the song, a reversed portion. They're singing - "Face the mighty waterfall, face the mighty waterfall" (which is the backing vocal track for the song "Waterfall," the second song on the album.)

Here's the portion reversed (200k) - realitywall.webjump.com/samples/downhome.mp3

And, see the Fire On High egg.

The intro to Fire on High on Face the Music by ELO played backwards says: "The music is reversable, time is not. Turn back. Turn back. Turn back."

Yes, you are all right about Fire On High, but he's talking about a song called Down Home, which also has backward masking in it. And he's implying that the message delivered in Down Home is referencing the backward masking in Fire On High. =)

Your copy must be wrong, I have listened to the song a number of times and it does say "the music is reversable, but time isn't, turn back, turn back, turn back"

In the first 12 seconds, as the song fades in, there IS backward masking in Down Home Town, AND there is ALSO backward masking in Fire on High from about 28 seconds to 53 seconds into it. It starts with the reversed intro from Evil Woman and then "The music is reversable..."
