*Composed By Lamont Dozier/Brian Holland/Edward Holland, Jr.
Song the Jackson 5 recorded at least three versions of, one in 1972 and two in 1973 - possibly for the album, Skywriter.
The first version was originally included on the album, Boogie, issued in North America in January 1979 and quickly withdrawn. This version was also featured as a bonus track on the '2 Classic Albums on 1 CD' reissue of Skywriter & Get It Together.
An alternate version was included on Michael's LOOKING BACK TO YESTERDAY, issued in 1986 and available in "Hello World - The Motown Solo Collection" album issued in 2009. This version was credited to Michael solo, but used the same vocal take as the first version, with some backing vocals omitted from the first verse.
Another alternate take featured on Michael's 1995 Anthology series compilation, The Best Of.... This take, by a much younger Michael, is much less polished than the other two versions.
Love's Gone Bad - Lyrics
Ah I feel a fountain in my brain
Ice-cold water runnin' through my pain
Got a bad taste in my mouth from bitter tears
Heart so sad 'cause love's gone bad
I see a rainbow all in black
Must be a sign that you ain't comin' back
Wake up at night callin' your name
I see a face on my window pane
I've been this way since you've been gone
Without your love I can't go on
Look in the mirror, what do I see?
A cryin' face, kinda looks like me
Now where's the love you promised me?
Where's he tenderness to comfort me?
Everytime some love I choose
I seem to always be the one to lose
Bad taste in my mouth from bitter tears
Heart fells sad 'cause love's gone bad
Love's gone bad, heart fells bad
Black crows flying up above
It's a sign that I live life without love
Slime's on the man, slime's ont the sea
Slime's everywhere I said I'm destined to be
And this world where nothing's right
Since you've been gone I can't sleep at night
You said you'd be true to me
Instead you made a fool out of me
Heart feels sad, love's gone bad
