You Give Love a Bad Name – American Idol Season 6 – Blake Lewis

Written by Jon Bon Jovi and performed by the group Bon Jovi, You Give Love a Band Name was a #1 Billboard Hot 100 hit in 1986.  The only two covers I found were by Atreyu (metalcore) and Blake Lewis (AI Season 6).  This may have been Blake’s best performance. 

Shot through the heart, and you’re to blame, darling
You give love a bad name

An angel’s smile is what you sell
You promise me heaven then put me through hell
Chains of love, got a hold on me
When passion’s a prison you can’t break free

You’re a loaded gun … yeah
There’s nowhere to run
No-one can save me,
the damage is done

Shot through the heart, and you’re to blame
You give love a bad name
I play my part and you play your game
You give love a bad name
You give love a bad name

You paint your smile on your lips
Blood red nails on your fingertips
A school boys dream, you act so shy
Your very first kiss was your first kiss goodbye

You’re a loaded gun
There’s nowhere to run
No-one can save me,
the damage is done

Shot through the heart, and your to blame
You give love a bad name
I play my part and you play your game
You give love a bad name
You give love…..

Shot through the heart and you’re to blame
You give love a bad name
I play my part and you play your game
You give love a bad name

Shot through the heart and your to blame
You give love a bad name
I play my part and you play your game
You give love a bad name

You give love….
You give love a bad name
You give love….
You give love a bad name
You give love….
You give love a bad name
