Waterloo Revival, ‘Bad for You’ [Listen]
Waterloo Revival are an all-male duo with bite, and their aggressive, new single, “Bad for You,” doesn’t back down. The uptempo track is a little funky, a little dirty and a little bit rock 'n' roll.
Relentless kick drum powers Cody Cooper and George Birge through this guy-meets-girl story. They use familiar metaphors after setting the scene:
“I’m like a bee on honey / I’m like a cloud on blue / You’ve got me doin’ things I know I shouldn’t do / I got it bad for you,” Waterloo Revival sing to end the chorus of “Bad for You.”
The song is just two-and-a-half minutes long, and it leaves one wanting something more. Another verse, another chorus … anything to keep the party alive for another 30 to 60 seconds.
“Whisper words that hit me like a hundred proof / One beer always turns into I’m drunk with you / Love the way you make me / Crazy who could blame me / Baby, Baby, I – I – I / I got it bad for you,” the Texas-raised duo sing.
“Bad for You” is Waterloo Revival’s second single from an upcoming album. It’s a song that will grab a hold of the radio if it gets its chance. Songs that come and go this quickly usually do.
Why Fans Will Love It: "Bad for You" is a great party song that doesn't let up until it ends.
Key Lyrics: "I got it bad for you / With that sugar on your lips / Your body’s makin’ moves / My hands just can’t resist."
Did You Know?: Cody Cooper and George Birge have been friends since middle school.
