A while ago I interviewed Mark Devlin on HPANWO Radio, see: http://hpanwo-radio.blogspot.co.uk/2013/06/programme-50-podcast-mark-devlin.html. He is a disk jockey who is very concerned about how occult Illuminati symbolism is inserted into modern pop music. The idea that music can be used as a form of psychological warfare is in the publicly available realm; in fact it was developed long ago by people like Theodor Adorno of the Frankfurt School and Maj. Gen. George Owen Squier of the Muzak corporation. Devlin describes how artists like JayZee, Rihana and Lady Gaga include strange magickal themes in their song lyrics, imagery and videos. Sometimes these themes are very subtle and nebulous and at other times more blatant. I myself have discussed this feature of the 1980's new romantic band Duran Duran, see: http://hpanwo-radio.blogspot.co.uk/2014/12/ben-emlyn-jones-on-mind-set-podcast-72.html. However Madonna has recently written a song which is by far the most obvious example I've ever come across. It's actually called Illuminati and the lyrics are something to behold: http://www.theverge.com/2014/12/20/7427053/madonna-rap-illuminati-buzzwords. The first verse names some of Madonna's fellow musicians who have been accused of using Illuminati symbolism by people like Mark Devlin and Jemma King, as if she is parodying or discrediting these conspiracy theories. The second verse and chorus continues with this notion. The third verse sounds like it's referring to the Bavarian Illuminati, see: http://hpanwo.blogspot.co.uk/2007/08/my-book-review-who-are-illuminati.html. After that the tone of the song changes and it becomes more sinister: And now the media's misleading us all. To right and to wrong. It's time to dance and turn this dark into something. So let the fire burn, this music is bumping. I could interpret this as a description of an Illuminati ritual. This song is the fifth track on Rebel Heart, Madonna's new studio album that is due to be released early next year. However some of the demo tracks have been leaked early including Illuminati. Whether this was unintended or was done deliberately as a piece of viral marketing, we can only speculate. The album cover has a photo of the singer with her head wrapped in black wire; this is disturbing, you can see the wire digging into her skin. The Illuminati song can be heard here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OcNtrtcSnsM. I don't have the means to play it backwards; but if any HPANWO readers do, could you let me know if there are any hidden messages? Madonna has had occult magick symbolism associated with her work before; in fact during her unenthused and abortive career as an actress she wore a leather jacket in the film Desperately Seeking Susan with an Illuminati pyramid on the back, see: http://filmjackets.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=522.
