Empty Spaces Backwards

This morning I received the following email about my backmasking page:

Hey Jeff,

Just wanted to let you know that your backmasking site rocks. Just one thing you’ve probably heard before, but when you play Empty Spaces backwards there’s a bit more to the lyrics than what you have on your site. The full lyrics are:

“Congratulations, you’ve just discovered the secret message. Please send your answer to Old Pink, care of the Funny Farm, Chalfont – ”

“Roger, Carolyn’s on the phone.”

The first guy speaking is bassist Roger Waters. I have no idea who the second guy is, but the ‘Carolyn’ he refers to is probably Roger’s wife of the time, Carolyn Christie. Roger claimed that Carolyn often saved him from going crazy by forcing him to communicate with her, even when he didn’t want to, so that’s probably what the backwards message is referring to. But I’m rambling. Take care and keep the site going, I really love it.


Thanks Carmen. I have received a lot of email about the missing line “Roger, Carolyn’s on the phone” but this is the first time that anyone has offered any kind of explanation as to what it means.
