Message in Strawberry Fields Forever

  • Ref: How are backward messages created on tracks?

    What does the famous 'hidden message' at the end of Strawberry Fields Forever actually say?

    The conspiracy theorists would have us believe it's "I buried Paul."

    The Wikipedia article about Strawberry Fields Forever says the following:

    In 1974, McCartney said, "That wasn't 'I buried Paul' at all – that was John saying 'cranberry sauce' … That's John's humour … If you don't realise that John's apt to say cranberry sauce when he feels like it, then you start to hear a funny little word there, and you think, 'Aha!'"


    Pretty sure Paul was blowing the question off with that statement. That's definitely Paul's sense of humor showing. :o)

    @Johhny Bones He might be, however, when listening to the Anthology versions John saying 'cranberry sauce' can clearly be heard. I believe he even admitted to saying it, although I have no source to back that.
