Bad Company - Feel Like Makin' Love





Vocalist Paul Rodgers began writing the song when he was touring with Free in 1968 in San Francisco. He recalled to Uncut:


"The inspiration was somebody I had met at the time. Life experiences. I traveled, hitchhiking, up to Rio Nido and camped out in the woods with some people I had met. I was gone for days. It was a wonderful experience to be young and free in America in the '60s."



Several years after Rodgers wrote the song, he played it to Bad Company guitarist Mick Ralphs, who came up with some big chords for the chorus. Ralphs recalled:


"I came up with the riff, and I suggested we put the two together to create a song. I think that's the feel of the song, the verses are very appealing to the ladies, probably more than the men; and then the riff comes in which is all bloody macho. It's a big chorus and it worked out really well."










Lyrics


Baby, when I think about you

Think about love...

Darlin' I don't live without you

And your love...


If I had those golden dreams of my yesterday (yesterday)


I would wrap you

In the heaven

Feel it dyin' (dyin', dyin') all the way


Feel like makin'

Feel like makin' love

Feel like makin' love

Feel like makin' love

Feel like makin' love to you


Baby, if I think about you

Think about love...

Darlin' if I live without you

I live without love...


And if I had the sun and moon

They were shinin'...

I would give you both night and day

Love satisfyin'...


Feel like makin'

Feel like makin' love

Feel like makin' love

Feel like makin' love

Feel like makin' love to you

And if I had those golden dreams of my yesterday (yesterday)

I would wrap you

In the heaven

Feel it dyin'(dyin', dyin) all the way


Feel like makin'

Feel like makin' love

Feel like makin' love

Feel like makin' love

Feel like makin' love to you


Well, I feel like makin' love

Well, I feel like makin' love

Well, I feel like makin' love

Woo

Feel I like makin' love to you

Well, I feel like makin' love

Woo

Well, I feel like makin' love

Well, I feel like makin' love

Feel like makin' love to you, woo

Well, I feel like makin' love

Woo


Well, I feel like makin' love

Yeah, yeah

Well, I feel like makin' love

Yeah

Feel like makin' love to you

Yeah, yeah

Ha

Feel like makin' love
