Subject: Help with a song please

Written By: cedwards222 on 04/04/06 at 8:15 pm

I am trying to find out the name and artist of a song that popped into my head the other day.  I am pretty sure that it is from the 70's.  A guy singing.  Kind of a rock song.  The chorus says something like Bad (Bad) Love (Love) something something something (I think it says something on the run).  It could be saying mad or luck.  This is not Eric Clapton's song.

Any help is greatly appreciated.

I believe it's Bad Blood by Neil Sedaka

I agree, that's probably it.  The very prominent backing vocals: Elton John  :D

Lyrics (copied from another source):

It coulda been me but it was you
Who went and bit off a little bit more than he could chew
You said that you had it made, but you been had
The woman no good, no how, thinkin' maybe the blood is bad

Bad (ba-a-ad) blood (blo-o-od)
The woman was born to lie
Makes promises she can't keep
With the wink on an eye

Bad (ba-a-ad) blood (blo-o-od)
Brother, you've been deceived
It's bound to change you mind
About all you believe

From where I stand, it looks mighty strange
How you let a woman like that treat you like small change
I don't understand what you're lookin' to find
The only thing bad blood do is mess up a good man's mind

Bad (ba-a-ad) blood (blo-o-od)
The bitch is in her smile
The lie is on her lips
Such an evil child

Bad (ba-a-ad) blood (blo-o-od)
Is takin' you for a ride
The only good thing about bad blood
Is lettin' it slide

Doo-ron, doo-ron, di di, dit, dit, ron-ron
Doo-ron, doo-ron, di di, dit, dit, ron-ron
Doo-ron, doo-ron, di di, dit, dit, ron-ron
Bad blood, talkin' 'bout bad blood

Doo-ron, doo-ron, di di, dit, dit, ron-ron
Doo-ron, doo-ron, di di, dit, dit, ron-ron
Doo-ron, doo-ron, di di, dit, dit, ron-ron
Bad blood

SPOKEN: Here we go

Bad (ba-a-ad) blood (blo-o-od)
The bitch is in her smile
The lie is on her lips
Such an evil child

Bad (ba-a-ad) blood (blo-o-od)
Is takin' you for a ride
The only thing good about bad blood
Is lettin' it slide

The only good thing about bad blood
Is lettin' it slide

There was a Barry White song, "Bad Love" with the title repeated in the chorus.

"Bad Blood", by Neil Sedaka and YES that's Elton John singing backup.
