Whenever I hear John Lennon’s Imagine, I always think of as a song about Utopia and peace. Well, Matthew Santoro just shot that theory to Hell and back and then back to Hell and left it there. He says there have been rumors that the song is more about Communism. No Countries, no religions and no possession is the ideology of Communist Manifesto. And with that, I will never listen to that song ever again. At least not in the same way.
That wasn’t the only Beatles songs he talked about in his 10 Songs with Creepy Hidden Messages Vlog. He also talks about Strawberry Fields Forever, Revolution 9, I’m So Tired and Blackbird. If you plays those songs backwards or in between the latter two, you will hear references to Paul McCartney being dead. A reference that is still very well known today. As we know Paul is not dead, but sadly John Lennon and George Harrison are.
Another Global sensation also making the list is Britney Spears. Did you know if play her first hit backwards, you will hear, “Sleep with me, I am not too young.” Hit Me Baby One More Time because I can’t believe that even though I heard it for myself. I guess she’s not that innocent.
Metal songs also made the list. But what about the Classic Rock iconic diddy Hotel California. How did that get on there? Turns out people thinks they are singing about Devil worship. Read these lyrics without thinking of the tune, “This could be Heaven or this could be Hell” and “You can check-out any time you like, But you can never leave!” The band says it is about the music industry, but I don’t know anymore.
The only thing I do know is Sting was stalking his ex when he wrote Every Breath You Take.
Well, the morale of this story is that kids are missing out records because you can’t play an Digital Track or a CD backwards to hear a secret meaning.
I am off to listen to songs that don’t have creepy secret meanings like Cyndi Lauper’s She Bop and Boomtown Rats’ I Don’t Like Mondays. Going into my safe space.
Sting is known for tantric sex. If you have enough of it, then you are going to have a few kids. In fact, he has 6 of them and here he is with his oldest one Joe. Who is 40, BTW. Can you believe that the lead singer of The Police has a 40 year old son?
While the two don’t look alike, they dress the same and have the same hair, so you know he is his dad’s kid. Although the younger Sumner is a lot taller than his dad. Because of that, we got this sweet photo.
First off, I want to say I love The Police, but I loathe Sting. Today, I am actually finding myself almost liking after him after taking part in James Corden’s newest sketch on The Late Late Show last night. The two British singers had a Battle of the Singing Waiters that could only have one winner. Sadly, the CBS late night host didn’t have a chance because Gordon Sumner brought out the big guns to win. As in sending out a Message in the Bottle for Roxanne. Even though it took Every Breath he takes, it was well worth it for the victory. A victory, we all got to relish in.
Never have I wanted to be a taping of LLS like I wish I was at this one. Hearing him sing his former band’s songs acoustically that would’ve been a memory I would never forget.
Back before The Police was one of the biggest selling bands of the ’80s, they played really seedy locations. One night the trio, played in area that had a lot of Brothels, but Sting couldn’t afford one to bring up to his hotel room. Therefore he imagined what it would be like to have a relationship with one and maybe even marry her. And that is the story behind their first huge hit Roxanne.
Talking about behinds, Sting also told Howard Stern what that weird sound and laughter is that you hear at the beginning of the tune. The singer thought the piano lid was down, but it wasn’t. So that his butt tickling, or should say, smashing the ivories.
I will hear that song in a whole new red light.
Have you ever wondered if Sting got stung by a bee? Well that is what Graham Norton wanted to know from The Police singer when he was on his show on Friday. Not only has be Sting been stung, he owns a dozen hives of the buggers at his Wilshire Estate.
For the most part they get along with the man that named himself after what they do, but one day there was a bee who feels the way about him as I do. That little fella flew up to Gordon Sumner and stung him on the crown of his head.
He said it was the “most exquisite pain. It was like a psychedelic experience and my whole brain went.” Then he added, “I haven’t been the same since.”
The incident happened about when he reunited with The Police, so I guess something good came out of it for us. In fact, it was also good for him because he revealed he wants to be stung again by one of those yellow and black creatures.
