Bruce on Phil Spector’s "wall of sound" in his 2012 SXSW Keynote speech

"Then Spector and the Wall of Sound. Phil's entire body of work could be described by the title of one of his lesser–known productions, "He Hit Me (And It Felt Like a Kiss)." Phil's records felt like near chaos, violence covered in sugar and candy, sung by the girls who were sending Roy–o running straight for the anti–depressants. If Roy was opera, Phil was symphonies, little three–minute orgasms, followed by oblivion. And Phil's greatest lesson was sound. Sound is its own language. I mean, the first thing you would think of with Phil Spector is (soundbite of mimicking a drum beat). That was all you needed."
 

Lyrics

My boy
I got so much love in my heart for him
That I really don't feel like me when he's not around
Yes, there are boys and there are boys
But he's a (fine, fine boy)

I wanna tell the world about the boy I love
Just the kind of guy I was dreaming of
He's so sincere when he holds me tight
And when I'm blue he makes me feel alright

Oh he's got a sweet, sweet, kiss and a true, true heart
And something tells me that we'll never part
He's got a sweet, sweet, kiss and a true, true heart
And he's (fine) yeah, (fine) yeah, (fine) yeah
I know he's (fine) yeah, (fine) yeah, (fine) yeah
I know he's a (fine, fine boy)

(Fine, fine boy)

He can take me places and buy me things
But love is more important than a diamond ring
So all I wanna do is stay by his side
And take care of him and I'll be satisfied

Oh he's got a sweet, sweet, kiss and a true, true heart
And something tells me that we'll never part
He's got a sweet, sweet, kiss and a true, true heart
And he's (fine) yeah, (fine) yeah, (fine) yeah
I know he's (fine) yeah, (fine) yeah, (fine) yeah
I know he's a (fine, fine boy)

Oh he's got a sweet, sweet, kiss and a true, true heart
And something tells me that we'll never part
He's got a sweet, sweet, kiss and a true, true heart
And he's (fine) yeah, (fine) yeah, (fine) yeah
I know he's (fine) yeah, (fine) yeah, (fine) yeah
I know he's a (fine)

My boy, he's a fine, fine, super fine boy

(Oh-oh, fine, fine boy) I know he's fine, oh yeash
(Oh-oh, fine, fine boy) oh yeah, I know, I know he's fine
(Oh-oh, fine, fine boy) I know he's fine, yeah, yeah
(Oh-oh, fine, fine boy) oh, he's fine
