    Franz Ferdinand- Subliminal messaging?!

    Hi guys,
    This has been driving me crazy all day! I've heard rumor about the Franz Ferdinand song 'Michael' havin a subliminal message in it. It's supposedly in the second line to the song (So come dance with me Michael). My friend and i have been tryin to figure it out and best we've got so far is "look in them who does mock us" or "look im them/him who doesnt mock us" If you have any suggestions can you please post a reply and if i find out the answer i'll tell you all. Thanks
    ~Lover~

    I'm not sure what you just said.
    What are you saying Franz Ferdinand is implying?

    that band isn't good enough to have effective subliminal messaging... unless it's "hey turn off your stereo", which i feel i must do when I hear them.

    Led Zeppelins stairway to heaven has the greatest subliminal message I have ever heard. If you play it backwards in one section you hear very clear devil stuff.. like 'Its all for satan' 'he takes me to the toolshed' and such... Kinda creepy listening to it.

    Coincidence.

    Subliminal messaging requires our brains to be able to understand it. Even sublimnally, our brain can't reinterpret something played forwards as something played backwards even if it would sound like words.

    I don't by an intent to put it there either. What does it say? And don't say "something satanic" cause even my subwoofer sounds like its speaking tounges when it gets caught with some feedback.

    phuzion, you must not be attuned to their subliminal messages... maybe i can only hear it because it's on a frequency that only dogs and degenerates can hear.

    I was talking to my freind about this the other day. Apparently it says "call your mother, shes worried about you" or some such. I cant be bothered to find out if it's true.

    well when i listen to it, it sounds pretty plainly like he's singing a song to a guy named michael that he finds pretty damn sexy.
    The lyrics go something like:

    Michael you're the only one i'd ever want
    only one i'd ever want, only one i'd ever want
    beautiful boys on the beautiful dance floor
    michael you're dancing like a beautiful dance

    etc etc

    I don't think that's particularly subliminal...nor is it a message...but maybe some people are uncomfortable about a guy singing a song to another guy?

    Yeah, and they come out of your toilets at night when everyone is asleep, to eat all you mayonnaise. Lock your fridge.


    Honestly guys, go draw.
