Song of the day: Billy J. Kramer with The Dakotas – "Bad To Me"

Speaking of tunes that get stuck into your head*…

Or if you want to get all purist:

Billy J. Kramer with The Dakotas – “Bad To Me (mono) (1963)

Here’s the chap who wrote it but never recorded it with his bandmates:

John Lennon – “Bad To Me (demo) (1963)

By the way, there are two more recent covers of the song that I think are worth hearing. The first is by Australian (Adelaide) Beatles tribute band The Beatnix, and I like it. The second is by American (Seattle) Beatles tribute band Apple Jam, and I like it a lot.

Apple Jam – “Bad To Me (2009)

And I’ve just noticed that this post, with all those different versions of the one song, is much longer than it needed to be – just like yesterday’s post. I really must try to give you a Song of the day where it is actually one song.

(*Well, I was the other day.)
