The Ballad Of Travis Alexander (The Jodi Arias Trial Song)

Album: not on an album (2013)
  • Considering the truly bizarre nature of the crime, the outrageous lies of its perpetrator and the saturation coverage it received from the mainstream media - including live broadcast over the Internet - it is hardly surprising that the trial of Jodi Arias for the murder of Travis Alexander spawned a number of murder ballads.

    This one was written and performed by local songwriter Michael Reichstein during the trial, and is a fair effort, bending the lyrics to create a slightly humorous effect using a bit of poetic license. >>
