Famous Blues Covers

In 1968, Fleetwood Mac  recorded a version of Need Your Love So Bad, which reached the singles chart in the UK and the Netherlands.

Need Your Love So Bad is a song first recorded by Little Willie John in 1955. Called a "unique amalgam of blues, gospel and rhythm and blues", it was John's second single as well as his second record to reach the US charts.

"I need someone's hand, to lead me through the night
I need someone arms to hold and squeeze me tight
When the night begins an' the dew remains
I need your love so bad
I need some lips to feel next to mine
I need someone to stand up an' tell me, when I'm lying
When the lights are low, an' it's time to go
I need your love so bad
So give it up an' bring it home to me
Or write it on a paper, so it can be read to me
Tell me you love me an' stop driving me mad
'Cause I need your love so bad
I need a soft voice that will talk to me at night
Don't worry baby, we won't fuss an' fight
Listen to my plea, bring it home to me
I need your love so bad
Ooh, I need your love so bad-yeah..."

Composer: William Edward John
