Meat City ( John Lennon) Easter Egg - John Lennon's Meat City Mind Games

Every Beatles fan knows how much John loved to play with backward tape loops as well as with people's heads. When the "Paul is dead" rumors started in the late '60's, he said he got out all the records and played them backwards to hear any hidden bits he may have forgotten as he knew the fans were doing likewise. Years later in 1973, when he released his brilliant "Mind Games", the flip side of the 45 rpm was a great tune called "Meat City". There's a bit in the first verse that obviously has a backward vocal. When you play it in reverse it says "CHECK THE ALBUM!". So get out the album. The same tune is the last track on the LP. Again, in the first verse, there's a backward vocal, except when you play this one in reverse it says "F**K A PIG!". The first time I heard this, I fell on the floor laughing. You hadda love him!
