Subject: Double entendre in Madonna's Like a Prayer

Written By: Satish on 08/02/05 at 11:27 am

In Madonna's song "Like a Prayer", am I the only one who chuckles at the line "I'm down on my knees/ I want to take you there"? That line can have a bit of a double meaning, don't you think? I mean... she's down on her knees... and she wants to take me there? Anyone who's got a dirty mind can see where I'm going with this.  ::)

That song also supposedly has another message when played backwards. Something to do with Satan. Go to a site called you might find it on there. the most famous (or imfamous) instance of backmasking is in Led Zeppelin's Stairway To Heaven. On this site you can dowload the lttle backward snippete with the supposed backwards messages & also snippetes of the bit in the song in foward or you can click on the spoilers which tell you what it's supposed to say in reverse. There's intentional backmasking & unintentional. Madonna's Like A Prayer is meant to be unintentional. Thakfully common sense & science prevailed & the courts & experts deemed backmasking & subliminals as being ineffective & having close to no effect. That site is hours of fun & laughs check it out & check out the messageboard on there.

Life is a mystery, everyone must stand alone
I hear you call my name
And it feels like home


When you call my name it’s like a little prayer
I’m down on my knees, I wanna take you there
In the midnight hour I can feel your power
Just like a prayer you know I’ll take you there

I hear your voice, it’s like an angel sighing
I have no choice, I hear your voice
Feels like flying
I close my eyes, oh God I think I’m falling
Out of the sky, I close my eyes
Heaven help me


Like a child you whisper softly to me
You’re in control just like a child
Now I’m dancing
It’s like a dream, no end and no beginning
You’re here with me, it’s like a dream
Let the choir sing


Just like a prayer, your voice can take me there
Just like a muse to me, you are a mystery
Just like a dream, you are not what you seem
Just like a prayer, no choice your voice can take me there

Just like a prayer, I’ll take you there
It’s like a dream to me

The lyrics to me sound like she wants to give a guy a good time and give him pleasure but I could be wrong you know. ;D
