A Baker's Dozen Of "Bad" Songs

In case the title of this post isn't obvious (and it probably isn't what you thought at first), this is a collection of songs with "Bad" somewhere in their titles. That doesn't mean the songs are, in and of themselves, "bad" songs. Some of them might be, some of them might not, depending on your (or my) tastes. You probably have guessed this already, but there will be a follow-up to this post, featuring – you guessed it! – a collection of "Good" songs. Enjoy!  ~  JH

1)  Michael Jackson  ~  "Bad"  (you knew this one would be here, right?)

2)  Glee Cast  ~  "Bad Romance"  (this "Glee" cover of Lady Gaga's song is cleaned up a fair bit, and far less racy than the original song/video)

3)  George Thorogood And The Destroyers  ~  "Bad To The Bone"  (Whether or not George is actually bad to the bone is irrelevant; one thing's for sure – this dude is UGLY!)

4)  U2  ~  "Bad"  (There's no "official" music video for this one, but this live version is AMAZING!)

5)  Bad Company  ~  "Bad Company"  (Culled from the files of the Department of Redundancy Department)

6)  Daniel Powter ~  "Bad Day"  (Powter had a bad day when he realized he'd never again have a song as successful as this one)

7)  Bon Jovi  ~  "You Give Love A Bad Name"  (This song is brought to you by my wife, who's always been a big Bon Jovi fan – it's gotta be the hair...)

8)  Meat Loaf  ~  "Two Out Of Three Ain't Bad"  (In baseball, two out of three is fantastic – and impossible to maintain throughout the course of a long season)

9)  Dominique Pruitt  ~  "He's Got It Bad"  (For you country music fans out there – or country/rock, or rockabilly, or whatever this is)

10)  Creedence Clearwater Revival  ~  "Bad Moon Rising"  (To those of you who thought they were singing: "There's a bathroom on the right" – they weren't!)

11)  Inner Circle  ~  "Bad Boys"  (Whatchu gonna do when they come for you?)

12)  Meiko  ~  "Bad Things"  (Apparently, this song was recently featured on one of the Real Housewives series on Bravo; Meiko's a terrific singer, and she deserves better than that)

13)  Jim Croce  ~  "Bad, Bad Leroy Brown"  (For those of  you with "virgin ears," Croce does use "the D word" five times in this song – but it's a classic, so I'm still posting it)
