"Play That Funky Music (White Boy)" - Wild Cherry, 1976

According to a recent report in one of Britain's tabloid newspapers, Sir Paul McCartney and his ex-wife Heather Mills made a rap record while they were married. Reportedly, the track was called "Disability Rap", and it featured Heather rapping the lines: "It's been hard, other children can be cruel. Teasing and tormenting - freak, weirdo, retard. What do they know?"

Sir Paul reportedly hated the original idea but agreed, after strong persuasion by Heather, to help her with the recording by providing backing vocals and assisting with the arrangement. According to the report, he eventually convinced her "to see sense", and the recording remained a secret until recently.

Too bad the British press didn't keep this one under "raps" for good...

Interesting that she didn't lose her leg till she was an adult, so what would she know about being teased as a child? Yet another example of her over-active imagination.

Expatmum, I had PRECISELY that same thought. Must have been her personality disability that got her teased...

MBK -- sadly, I don't think so, as the story was published a day or so before the 1st of April.
