Here's a little known fact about me...when I was a teenager a friend and I decided we'd learn to speak backwards, in an attempt to have our own secret language.
Well, he didn't go through with it, but I did, and can still freak people out from time to time!
However, this guy went the extra mile and taught himself to sing, on key, backwards! He then reversed the video to show himself singing the song the way it should be, but in an odd backmasked manner.
It's very cool. Check out the video below.
Roger Waters played the massive charity concert Stand Up for Heroes to benefit wounded soldiers earlier this month.
The event was a huge success, and gave birth to some amazing performances.
Waters was joined on stage by a band of wounded veterans, including a drummer with one arm and no legs.
Recently, Waters posted a short video on his Facebook page talking about how the performance came in to fruition, touching on, among other things, the inclusion of wounded veterans in his band.

Being arguably the greatest rock band in history, Led Zeppelin are no strangers to having other bands cover their songs.
In some cases, the covers are amazing pieces of music, (Heart covering Stairway, for example,) but often times the bands paying tribute are not so flattering.
However, I did stumble across an AMAZING cover of Zep's "Since I've Been Loving You" by a band called Heavy English out of New York.
But, you can be the judge. Check out the video below:
So if you get bored on YouTube, you can usually find some decent mashups of songs that traditionally do not belong together. One that comes to mind is the eerily fitting Another Brick in the Wall Pt. II mashed up with The Bee Gees' Staying Alive.
However, Jimmy Page, in a way reminiscent of Diddy's song on the late nineties Godzilla soundtrack mashed with Kashmir, has mashed up Ramble On with Notorious BIG's Hypnotize.
I'm not completely sold, but follow the link below to decide for yourself. Warning NSFW!
Oddly enough, the topic of opera has gone hand in hand with Pink Floyd in recent years.
Of course, it all began in 1979 with the rock opera The Wall, but then Roger Waters took time to, instead of creating new solo material, write an opera by the name of Ca Ira. Then of course we had the radio play based on DSotM most recently, but now yet another opera idea based on the Floyd is in the works.
It's called Noise for Syd, based not on Mr. Barrett's life, but his music, although it won't be featuring any.
I'm absolutely ok with tributes to the Floyd, in whatever form they may be, and this one could be something special if done right.
