(1991)

Excuses For Bad Behaviour (Part One) is an album released by singer/comedienne/actress Sandra Bernhard. The album is a combination of spoken comedy bits, comedic songs, and pop/rock music.

Co-written and co-produced by Bernhard's longtime collaborator Mitch Kaplan, the album features Bernhard singing originals and standards re-interpreted with a new sound. Disco classic "You Make Me Feel (Mighty Real)" begins with an opperatic solo and is then translated to a modern dance song. "Mani Superstar" combines the song "Close Your Eyes" from the musical "Jesus Christ Superstar" and the song "Manic Depression" by Jimi Hendrix. "Sympathy For the Devil" by the Rolling Stones becomes a seductive siren's song.

Alternately, comedic bits include the spoken word "The Letter" in which Bernhard reads a fictional letter from a lesbian fan who has "heard" the album in question. "Jesus Christ, why is she singing?" "Christmas" is a heartwarming story of holidays past told by a Jewish woman who never actually experienced them. Other songs have a comedic edge, such as "Prophecies," a spoof on 1-900 psychic hotlines.

The album was released on a smaller independent label and did moderately well, but is currently unavaiable for mainstream purchase. However, a re-release is made available on Bernhard's own website.
