Phil Spector Is Misunderstood

  • Anyone who thinks rap artists have a monopoly on bad taste should check out this song which was written and rapped by actor George Frangides, who not only looks like Spector but moves like Michael Jackson.

    Although it has no F words, N words or words beginning with M that your father wouldn't like, "Phil Spector Is Misunderstood" plumbs the depths of bad taste, satirizing the death of actress Lana Clarkson at Spector's hands. That being said, the song and mandatory video is an extremely funny take on a man who has had precious little to laugh about since the night of February 3, 2003, and even less since his conviction six years later for the second degree murder of a woman who nobody had a bad word to say about. More thoughtful music fans should check out the tribute song "Lana" by English rock band The Climb. >>
