Radio 60, side A, track 5: “Drag My Bad Name Down” by The 4 Of Us

The 4 Of Us - Drag My Bad Name DownOh, The 4 Of Us, you’ll be happy to know that I’m feeling much better than I was yesterday.  And it’s a good thing, too, because you can’t be mopey when you’re listening to this song.  I have no idea what this song is about, The 4 Of Us, but even though I haven’t heard it in ages, I knew it immediately.  And this time I paid attention to the lyrics, and guess what?  Still no clue.  That’s fine, though.  You don’t need to know what the hell you’re singing to enjoy this song.  I’ve never heard another song by you in my life.  At least not that I know of.  But if I can base your entire musical career on just this song, my assumption is that you guys are some of the best musicians ever.  Plus I guess you’re from Ireland?  That makes you even cooler.  I don’t know why, but it does.  And I don’t know who’s telling you that you’ve got a bad name to be dragging down, because anybody who makes music like this can’t have a bad name.  Unless Jesus is saying it.  Then y’all are gonna have to take it up with him, I ain’t gettin’ involved in that.

“Drag My Bad Name Down”

<awesome The 4 Of Us jam>

Corrine
I want no opinion from you, was it fun or just a bad thing ta do (drag my bad name down)
And while you play
I’m waiting
For the day
I found some way ta make ya pay (drag my bad name down)
But then you come and you pull me around
(Drag my bad name down)
Would Jesus pull me around
(Drag my bad name down)
Would Jesus pull me around
(Drag my bad name down)
I need some food, some sleep, some company ta keep, the sun, some shade, a word and a will made
And drink
My cabinet’s open wide
I’ll take somethin’ to make me go wild (drag my bad name down)
In truth
Good fortune sets me free
Would vengeance make a killer of me (drag my bad name down)
Wow! Pull me around
(Drag my bad name down)
Would Jesus pull me around
(Drag my bad name down)
Would Jesus pull me around
(Drag my bad name down)
I need some food, some sleep, some company ta keep, the sun, some shade, and somebody’s bed

Aaaaaa!

Aaaaaa!

<awesome The 4 Of Us jam>

As for love
My friend’s no open book
I need somebody misunderstood
(Drag my bad name down)
Is it a war
When the fool
Went just like me who wants someone ta make me bleed

Lull me around
Drag my bad name down, and people say, lull me around
Drag my bad name down, and people say, lull me around
Drag my bad name down, and people say, lull me around
Drag my bad name down
Oh, Jesus

(Drag my bad name down)
Would Jesus pull me around
(Drag my bad name down)
Would Jesus just pull me around
(Drag my bad name down)
I’ll take some
Books, films, changin’ my will, a lies test, everybody, Jesus, pull me around
(Drag my bad name down)
Would Jesus pull me around
(Drag my bad name down)
Would Jesus pull me around
(Drag my bad name down)

  1. […] because of this little clip of new music previews.  We’ve already heard that great song by The 4 Of Us, and it’s never a bad day when there’s a new Phil Collins song to be heard.  But did […]
