Another great post by our good friend Mike Macaluso. This time a cover of the Animals “It’s My Life. The Animals were a huge influence on Bruce. When Bruce addressed the 2012 SXSW convention he stated that much of his early content was influenced by The Animals, including the main riff of Badlands, taken from the song “Don’t Let Me Be Misunderstood. Sully
The Animals, It’s My Life is a great song covered by Bruce in 1975-1977. “It’s My Life” was written by Brill Building songwriters Roger Atkins and Carl D’Errico. The song was originally performed by British rock band The Animals, who released it as a single in November 1965.
