Thirty Days of Song (day 12)

A song by a band you hate:

I don’t really hate any bands. This may come as a surprise to you, and there are certainly many, many bands that I despise. But as I barely listen to the radio and go to clubs infrequently, I just don’t hear enough of those bands to hate them. So, this is a great song, but produced by a complete asshole, Phil Spector. It qualifies further through being about his abusive relationship with Ronnie Spector (née Bennett). This combination is enough to prevent my brother from enjoying the song, but being clearly lacking in his emotional intelligence I still love it.

day 02 – your least favourite song: I Believe I Can Fly – R Kelly
day 03 – a song that makes you happy: Uptown Top Ranking – Althea and Donna
