Screw it, I'll admit it. "Look at Your Game, Girl," by Charles Manson is a pretty good song, and he has a good voice. It's way better than the terrible cover of it that Guns N' Roses did on the classic lineup's awful covers swansong The Spaghetti Incident too. Apparently, Phil Spector's holding out for someone better to work with in his new digs.

According to the New York Post’s Page Six, [Charles] Manson reached out to the “Wall of Sound” producer seeking a behind-bars musical meet-up. Earlier this year, Spector was found guilty of second-degree murder in a retrial of the death of actress Lana Clarkson and sentenced to 19 years to life in prison. Manson was convicted of murder and conspiracy in 1971.

“A guard brought Philip a note from Manson, who said he wanted him to come over to his [lockup]. He said he considers Philip the greatest producer who ever lived,” Spector’s wife Rachelle — a colorful personality who often bickered with the judge during Phil’s murder trials — told Page Six. “It was creepy. Philip didn’t respond.” Added Spector’s publicist Hal Lifson, “I think Manson wants to glean some musical advice from Phil, who was a ’60s music god with his ‘Wall of Sound.’ But Phil’s like, ‘I used to pick up the phone and it was John Lennon or Celine Dion or Tina Turner, and now Charles Manson is trying to get a hold of me!’ “

Yes Phil, that's what happens when you kill people. Celine Dion stops calling.
