8 Phil Spector produced songs that Phil Spector can sing in prison to pass time.

1. I Love How Your Love Me - The Paris Sisters, 1961
2. Second Hand Love - Connie Francis, 1962
3. He's A Rebel - The Crystals, 1962
4. Puddin' And Tain - The Alley Cats, 1963 (sounds sorta prison sexy.)
5. (Today I Met) The Boy I'm Gonna Marry - Darlene Love, 1963
6. You've Lost That Lovin' Feeling - The Righteous Brothers, 1965 (they say it's easier once you lose feeling.)
7. Instant Karma - John Lennon, 1970
8. Here We Go Again - John Lennon, 1986 (from the album "Menlove Ave.)


  1. No. 6: Ouch. Thanks for sharing, oh, and the ad on the side of the page. Nice (more nice than No. 6 anyway ;).

  2. Love #4 and #7. Hope that Phil is able to make lots of warm and loving new friends, based only on his charm and natural good looks. (I doubt he'll be able to avail himself of his expansive collection of wigs for the next 19 years or the rest of his life, whichever comes first)

  3. I recently read a book about Spector and have listened to his box set many times. There is a song on there actually called "He Hit Me (and It Felt Like a Kiss)." Um, think that would be appropriate?

  4. Jerry: Never heard of that song til now but it's perfect. Looks like another of Carol King's pre-stardom ditties. The Crystals recorded it but here's the Courtney Love version since she's more Spectorish. She does a pretty straight cover http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QzF_bweZY4o
