I tried a lot of John's songs and some really have haunting melodies when reversed. I listen to them sometimes as if they were an album... one on which John is singing opera in a long forgotten language. You wouldn't believe that you could get such beautiful new sounds out of existing recordings. I wanted to make a compilation of the best ones, but I never got around to trying all of his songs.
I will share some of the ones I liked.
Stream or download them here from SoundCloud
Leap Your Bar
Oh Freddy Bush (The Dying Song)
A Rabbit Called Runny (Well I've Been)
Nights in White Satin
Song to the Siren
If anyone is up for the challenge, find more that you think are worth listening to and share them. And if you write a song based on one of the reversed melodies, definitely share a recording of that. I have thought about writing songs based on some of these melodies myself.
