Wuh Guh Sri / Years Ago


 



This song's called "Wuh Guh Sri," which is the backwards version of "Years Ago," which I think I posted about a year ago. When I initially heard it, I wondered if it sounded kind of like Arcade Fire. But I dunno; I might be foolin' myself.




I turned it around backwards, and this time around, I didn't manipulate the timing of the tracks, relative to each other, because it worked out this way. But the weird thing is, the timing is off, such that it makes this version sound all upbeat, whereas the original song sounds all heavy and stuff.

Here are the lyrics:

Fell asleep at the wheel/ that's when time was a meal
Years Ago
Fell asleep in my dress/ stupid, sad scary mess
Years Ago
He sees that it's gone
Woke up when it was bed/ feeling blind and half dead
Years Ago
He sees that it's gone

Yup, yesiree. I'm repeating that death-related theme again - y'know, the one where I cain't really tell people about why it keeps on repeating like this. I dunno. Maybe the tradition I'm borrowing from would say it's okay to 'splain yourself. But I'm not sure.

Eh Pobisseray




This song is weird, in the sense that the backwards version has a different mood than the forwards version. Or, like, this here is the backwards version, and it sounds more major than the forwards version, which sounds more minor. The forwards version is a teeny tiny bit on the dark side, and this backwards version sounds almost celebratory. Although the words "eh pobisseray" are almost a little ominous sounding. 

Technically speaking, the guy with the mustache actually just has a receding hairline, rather than male pattern baldness, per se. However, I drew him as a pattern-baldness guy because it's easier to draw bald men than men with hair.

Dude, I'm reposting the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe link again, in case you want to give 'em any money. Here's why: it looks like that fucking fucking fucking fucking damn pipeline is gonna be built. So here's the link, so you can give 'em money so they can buy bottled water when their water source gets contaminated. http://standingrock.org/

Fear With Goat

This song is called "Fear With Goat." This one's got a lot of tritones in it because that one dude talking has tritones in his speech stream. Or, no, I guess it's just one tritone, now that I think of it. Tritones are weird.


Here's what it sounds like if you play it backwards. (Um, well, I cheated again and changed the timing of the vocal/guitar/bass/keyboard tracks, relative to the rhythm/sampled-dude tracks. Y'know, so they'll all match up, time-wise, and all that.)


It's actually a weird version of I dont talk to NDNs, which I originally posted back in 2015 at some point.

The lyrics are something along the lines of:

Were human things/we're human things/ what do we think we are?
Were human things/we're human things/ what do we think we are?
Were human things/we're human things/ what do we think we are?
Were human things/we're human things/ what do we think we are?

We're stupid things/ we're stupid things/ God, what have we done?
We're stupid things/ we're stupid things/ God, what have we done?
Were human things/we're human things/ what do we think we are?
Were human things/we're human things/ what do we think we are?

Someone said we're from another planet and they think we're dumb
And that we should go away so they can have fun
Were human things/we're human things/ what do we think we are?
Were human things/we're human things/ what do we think we are?

Edit: um, yeah, I wasn't as accurate on the syllables of the words as I wanted to be. Poopity poop. I'm not sure why some songs are easier to figure out than others. Fart.
