Youngblood was written by Lieber & Stoller and originally recorded by the Coasters in 1957. It was the flip side of Searchin, and charted #8 on the Top Forty in May of 1957. Bad Company covered the song in 1976, and that version charted at #20 on the Top Forty.

TRIVIA: The Beatles played this at their audition for Decca Records in 1962. Their version can be found on the album The Beatles Live At The BBC.


A man I've interviewed many times, the late Carl Gardner, lead singer of the Coasters who did the original in 1957.
