“sdaeh rieht  edih dna  nur yeht semoc niar  eht  fi” ( NIAR)

Cearly there’s some serious SMS maneuvering going on here, but you’ve heard ithis lyric hundreds of times!  And it’s the “B” side to one of our favorite songs from one of our favorite bands! And we believe any hard core 60’s Music Master will quickly catch on to what we’re doing here today!

In summary, here’s what we need:

1) Rearrange the letters so they properly spell out this weeks lyric ?

2) Tell us which 60’s classic includes this lyric line ?

3) Tell us which classic 60’s artist recorded and released this 60’s classic ?

  1. As soon as I read “B” Side in your question my mind snapped back to “Paperback Writer. I really liked these two songs! I remember trying to find what album they were on but OF COURSE NO ALBUM.. it’s a single.
    So “Rain” was “Writer’s” B side by our main guys the Beatles! “If the rain comes. They run & hide their heads.”
    Didn’t Paul do a recording manipulation with the amp/mic/bass on “Rain”? And I believe the song “Tomorrow Never Knows” contains the same lyric tricks and maybe the same bass enhancement??
    thanks “Shoe” our MUSIC SCHOLAR……wood

    • Hey Wood!
      I knew you’d be all over this one! And you’re quite right they did employ the “Backward Masking” (recording a track backwards technique on “Tomorrow Never Knows” Not sure about Paul tricking something out with his bass amp? Any details?

    • Hey Simon!
      Of course you nailed it but I’m surprised how many readers nailed the question so quickly!
      Thanx Simon and it’s always great to see you!

    • Hey Fred!
      Great to see you!
      You nailed but missed being first in by 23 seconds!
      However there is next week!

  2. If the rain comes they run and hide their heads is the first line of the Beatles’ “Rain” which was the B-side of Paperback Writer. “Tomorrow Never Knows” uses the same trick of running the tape backwards for effect.

    • Hey Larry!
      Great to see you AND you’re first in with all the right answers
      Yeah Baby! Soooo, please don’t be a stranger!
