Enron Jurors Warned to Avoid Song by The G-Man
Jury members at the trial of former Enron executives Kenneth Lay and Jeffrey Skilling are cautioned to avoid hearing a certain highly controversial song on “Electro Bop,” the 2003 album from The G-Man.
Scott G (recording artist The G-Man) made up his mind about former Enron Chairman Ken Lay back in 2003 when he released a controversial song entitled “***t is in the Dictionary (With a Picture of You)” on his dance album, “Electro Bop.”
To avoid prejudicing the trial of former Enron chairman Kenneth Lay and former Enron CEO Jeffrey Skilling, the G-Man Marketing company suggests jurors refrain from listening to the song. On several sites featuring the song, it clearly states that it was written “for Ken Lay.”
To count on your word is quite absurd.
You will say it if they pay it.
Only math you took was learning how
to cook the books.
Never heed your growing greed.
Know-it-all knows naught at all.
No compassion; no empathy,
your spirit is on empty.
The chorus of the song is “For behavior quite contrary, c*** is in the dictionary, with a picture of you.” (Copyright Scott G, BMI).
The earthy language is belied by the quiet delivery of the song, and the effect is more sad and philosophical than angry and rabble-rousing.
“I work with many large companies to create marketing, advertising, and broadcast commercials,” G states, “and I know most people at those firms are as appalled as I am over Enron. I was very angered that Enron executives let these things take place. When it was stated that they actually led those actions, I put all my frustration into that song.”
While some are upset at the four-letter word in the tune, G’s view is that “it perfectly captures the level of anger many of us have. Besides, I think it’s time we utilized that word in a gender-neutral manner.”
Scott G (The G-Man) has 5 albums on Delvian Records (including the just-released MOTION POTION) available on Rhapsody and iTunes. A member of NARAS (www.grammy.com) and a writer for Immedia Wire Service, his primary business is G-Man Marketing (www.gmanmarketing.com) where he produces radio commercials and music for film and TV spots.
