Bad Company - Feel Like Makin Love


Sunday, time for a classic.

"Feel Like Makin' Love" is a song by British supergroup BAD COMPANY. The song originally appeared on the LP "Straight Shooter" in April 1975 and was released as a single in August of the same year.


Paul Rodgers started to came up with the lyrics at a camp in California while touring the US with Free. He was 19 years old. After several years, Rodgers played it to BAD COMPANY guitarist Mick Ralphs who threw in that big chord in the chorus - the muted 'duh-duh' that marks the shift from country ballad to chest-beating rocker. This was at the end of 1969 and Paul Rodgers was a long way from home. While chart success still eluded the FREE vocalist and his band at this point, their reputation on the UK blues circuit had been enough to earn a string of dates on the American West Coast supporting BLIND FAITH. One particular afternoon the band had pitched up at a sun-dappled hippie commune outside San Francisco where Rodgers, still in his teens and more familiar with the industrial smog of his native Middlesbrough, felt the muse strike.

BAD COMPANY are an English hard rock supergroup formed in Westminster, London in 1973 by two former FREE band members—singer Paul Rodgers and drummer Simon Kirke as well as MOTT THE HOOPLE guitarist Mick Ralphs and KING CRIMSON bassist Boz Burrell. Peter Grant, who managed the rock band LED ZEPPELIN, also managed BAD COMPANY until 1982.
