How to listen to songs in reverse: Did a friend of yours tell you that listening to one of your favorite songs, on the contrary, you can hear a subliminal message? Well, I would say not to listen to it, they are all lies. In any case, if you want to take away the whim of trying, I can illustrate you how to listen to songs backwards easily using Audacity.

Audacity is a very famous free program for editing and applying special effects to audio files, among its many features there is also the one that allows you to listen to the songs in reverse and save them in this particular condition. That’s how.

The first step you need to take to find out how to listen to songs backwards is to connect to the Audacity website and click on the item Audacity 1.3.13 installer to download the program to your PC. When the download is complete, double-click on it to open the file you just downloaded (audacity-win-unicode-1.3.13.exe) and, in the window that opens, first click on Run And Yup (to authorize installation on Windows 7 and Vista) and then on OK. Then complete the installation of the program by first clicking on Forward for four consecutive times and then on Install, Forward And end and take the further step that I am about to illustrate.

By default, Audacity cannot save processed songs in MP3 format, so you need to install a small additional plug-in in the program. So connect to the MP3 LAME website and click on the item Lame_v3.98.3_for_Audacity_on_Windows.exe to download the plug-in to your PC. When the download is complete, double-click on it to open the file you just downloaded (Lame_v3.98.3_for_Audacity_on_Windows.exe) and, in the window that opens, first click on Run And Yup (to authorize installation on Windows 7 and Vista) and then on Next. Accept the conditions of use of the software, putting the check mark next to the item I accept the agreementand click on first Next twice in a row and then on Install And Finish to complete the installation and enable saving MP3 files in Audacity.

Now, start Audacity using its icon on the Windows desktop and, in the window that opens, click on OK to access the main screen of the program and select the item You open from the menu File to import the song you want to listen to in reverse (mp3, wav, flac and ogg files are supported).

With the song imported, go to the menu Effects Audacity and select the voice Reverse to flip the song. When it’s done (it should take a few seconds), you can listen to the songs backwards simply by clicking on the button play located at the top left.

If you like the upside-down version of your song so much that you want to save it as an mp3 song, click on the item Export of the menu File by Audacity. In the window that opens, indicate the folder where you want to save the song, type the name you want to assign to the file in the field File nameset the item MP3 files in the drop-down menu Save as and first click on Save and then on OK to start saving your song in reverse
