Why cant I get the lyrics anymore? LEEBEAR
In some parallel universe where time is fluid George and Eric are expanding their conscious and passing Patti back and forth this great song is playing. Sweet.
So Clapton and Harrison both ended up married to the same woman,they once referred to each other as "Husbands -in- law".
good thing we were made aware of the swans in the park!!
Easy Listening? Doesn't sound much like Cream.

Always loved the sound of this song-brief as it is and better for it
One of the best songs of all time. And, good story Adrian!
God Bless George Harrison, one of my favorite all time songs
Would have been as sucessful as Zep, had they stayed together.
Badge does sound, to me, like Harrison. While My Guitar Gently Weeps sounds like Clapton to me.
Badge is my all time favorite!! Incredible story about the creation of it - lots of 'masters' involved!!
aaahhhh Adrian that's great. Glad I put them as one of my stations.
Double WOW!! Thank you for that information Adrian. I would love to pick your brain. Awesome!!!!

Wow. Must be a good feeling to hear your own work!
Felix Pappalardi,C r e a m s Producer,wal k e d into the mix room at Atlantic Records in NY and handed me,an engineer at Atlantic working with Felix at the time to complete"Goo d b y e " Cream,a box of eight track master tape,and said "Here you go Adrian,knock your self out.It was all the stuff he'd recorded in London to finish the project.All I had to de was mix it all by morning!The First tune I tackled was Badge.I spent the entire mnight on that tune!It was my dream come true.Adriaan s Lonely Hearts Club C
never gets old

One of my favorite songs and bands. I hate today's music.
Ever notice the similarity in the "coda" between Badge and It Don't Come Easy? GEORGE!!!
Love the way the song just sort of ends.

According to Clapton the title was from his mis-reading of Harrison's hand-writing . Harrison wrote "bridge".

Also according to Clapton many of the lyrics were provided by Ringo Starr throwing out rhyming nonsense replies to lines by Clapton and Harrison. Clapton seemed to have fond memories of the writing session.
great song ...mabel was my grandma's name.

I am a big Eric Clapton fan. This is one of my favorites.

Great song, love that coda chord in the middle - played to an extreme in the 2005 live version. We certainly don't have songwriters like this around anymore.
dorismckeown
love claptons' & harrisons' guitars even if the don't make a helluva lotta sense. clapton, please stay away from the booze & drugs.
Trinitysupia : Yes, you are right! amazing song!!!
Named after the chords.
