It’s Friday and you know what that means: it’s time to avoid as much work and responsibility as we possibly can.
This week, ANDPOP host Simon Mohos and online editor Portia Baladad do just that as they spend some time trying to guess their favourite pop song. BUT WAIT UP, there’s a catch (there’s always a catch): they have to guess the song as it’s been played backwards. Don’t be fooled; it’s a tough task, especially when the lyrics end up sounding like a bunch of gibberish and the beat is just off ever so slightly when they’re played the wrong way.
Play along with us and try to see if you can guess the songs before we do! Let us know what songs were super easy and what stumped you by tweeting at us at @ANDPOP.
So who really knows their pop music, front to back? Who can actually remember song titles? Who wins the backwards pop song challenge? And do spirits appear out of nowhere? You have to hit play to find out!
