Top 10 Songs From Bad Company
Best of the Best
Bad Company brought something new and exciting to the table because they weren’t just any other group. This supergroup was composed of Paul Rodgers (from Free), Mick Ralphs (from Mott the Hoople), Simon Kirke (also from Free), and Boz Burrell (from King Crimson). Their manager until 1982 was Peter Grant who also managed Led Zeppelin and the Yardbirds.
Unsurprisingly, they were successful throughout the ’70s. Their albums dominated the charts and their singles became instant classics. They were known for giving blues rock a harder and heavier edge. Here are ten of their greatest songs.
10. Fade Away (1976)
Hauntingly beautiful and touching, Paul Rodgers’ impeccable voice truly shined in this power ballad.
9. Rock ‘N’ Roll Fantasy (1979)
Not as heavy as their other numbers, this one’s upbeat and funky. It’s an easy listen too!
8. Good Lovin’ Gone Bad (1975)
It’s straight up rock ‘n roll.
7. Ready for Love (1974)
The song may sound sexy and all but it’s still tastefully done.
6. Rock Steady (1974)
It may be another song about sex but it’s so groovy and flawless, we don’t seem to mind the theme.
5. Run with the Pack (1976)
From the piano part to the string section, it’s incredibly seamless.
4. Feel Like Makin’ Love (1975)
It takes you back to the ’70s and that’s pretty much why it’s still as iconic today as it was in 1975 – it’s timeless.
3. Shooting Star (1975)
The story isn’t that original and the lyrics may even come across as cheesy but thanks to Paul Rodgers’ vocal performance, he took it to another level.
2. Can’t Get Enough (1974)
A lot of fans were introduced to Bad Company by this masterpiece. It’s the band’s biggest hit single and it’s no wonder why.
1. Bad Company (1974)
The quintessential Bad Company song and not just because it’s their namesake. It’s the song that cemented their spot in rock ‘n roll.
