Skyward Sword GDC Trailer Song Inverted

Just listen to this (the inverted songs starts halfway). Yeah, the awesome song from the Skyward Sword GDC trailer is just Zelda's Lullaby played backwards.

It's interesting that no one has noticed this before until now. And Nintendo has a history of remixing songs in similar fashion, for example the Song of Healing on the Ocarina was just Saria's Song played backwards. Of course the timing different, as well as the background music, but the notes are the same. Or Midna's theme already used to be a variation of Zelda's Lullaby. So, you could start speculating about a deeper meaning and everything, but on the other hand, this song really just was simply inverted. We don't know if Kondo is behind this or if just some other guy at Nintendo discovered this and thought "hey, this sounds great". We can't even be sure yet, if this song will appear in the final game or if this just was quickly made for the trailer. Remember the Phantom Hourglass trailers with those awesome remixes of the Dark World and Hyrule Castle themes? Got pretty hyped about them, but then both songs were not present in the final game...

Still this is an interesting find, which may blow your mind.
