Johnny was a schoolboy
When he heard his first Beatles song
'Love Me Do' I think it was
And from there it didn't take him long

I love Bad co. I like the original version better...... .
Like the original version a lot better do not like this version of sucks
Would've been a good acoustic version with paul rogers on vocals... there was good rock during the disco/ parachute pants era. Switzerland boyz would' ve beat his tracy chapman sounding a**.
I want to ban this from my station but they're conducting maintenance so I have to sit through this version.

Do even try this song without Paul Rogers. Big mistake. Sounds like a Bad Co. tribute band.
I like it fine. Thought it was a bit refreshing.
It's the Bee-Gees !
Why can't I buy this on iTunes

I think rascal flats could remake this song I'll bet they could do a good job the lead singers vocals r about the same
Funny....I thought it was Tracy Chapman singing a Bad Co. song. Lol.
I looked it up, so here: Bad Company

During 1992 Robert Hart was approached by Mick Ralphs and Simon Kirke and asked if he would like to join them as the third lead vocalist for Bad Company, following Paul Rodgers and Brian Howe. Hart performed with Bad Company and became very popular with both the band and public alike especially in the USA and Canada. In July 1994 a contract was drawn up by Alliance Artists and Legend Management and signed by the then Bad Company line up, Mick Ralphs, Simon

this isnt bad company theres no way
Bad Company in name only; lacks the depth and emotional impact of the Paul Rogers original. Giving it a thumbs down and hoping the 70s version shows up.
This does seem a bit off......
This does NOT sound like Bad Company performing this piece!!!

GREAT SONG

NOT Bad Co doing this song
my favorite band
Defintiely not Paul Rogers on this. Whoever this is, is awful.
Tommy Jackson asked "who is this masquerading as bad. co. what a farce "
I am not sure, but I think this was Bad Co in 1996 like the title says.
We all get older, and voices sound different, wait in 20 years and Taylor Swift might actually have a voice and be a good singer, as is now she is poor to average.
paul rogers is the man


who is this masquerading as bad. co. what a farce

worse than limp bizgit redoing Blues Eyes by the who



by the way i get to see the real Bad. Company 7/30 in durant oklahoma---h a v e n t seen them since 1977

Paul Rogers is "The Voice".
Why are they trying to fix something that isn't broke. If the band can not have Paul Rogers singing then don't have some young jackoff destroying the music of my youth!

Don't you know this remake doesn't work for me-
Put the album back on- think this one is on "Straight Shooters"

Rogers voice is deeper and far more powerful-
I can remember driving through West Virginia on my way to go camping- and my boyfriend singing this to me- thanks for a great memory.
A nice try that just didn't work. It is not a bad song with this arrangement and vocalist, but the original is just too classic, and this one is not up to that standard.
THANK YOU GUYS (below)
i was wondering why this doesn't sound like the one I heard as a child with my dad.
doesn't this guy/version sound like boz scaggs..
leesa2liza3
I do have to agree with Wanda W. Paqart, but he doesn't sound horrible though Wanda!
Just that he just isn't the Paul Rodgers!! I really adore Paul's singing!!!!
OK,you messin with my Paul Rodgers now! This guy's voice is way too whinny/nasal . If you didn't know the original, I can see where you'd like it just for the story but once you've heard Paul Rodgers version you won't like this one. Just my opinion....
