It's fun learning about how some songs evolved. Bad is Bad is most famous as a song from Huey Lewis and the News on their Sports album in 1983. My favorite version for decades was by Dave Edmunds in 1979. That album credits Hugh Lewis as a writer and as playing harmonica. Yesterday someone pointed me to a 1977 recording of the song from Clover, a band Huey Lewis was in. It is a somewhat more bluesy version. Here are all three.
