"Feel Like Makin' Love" is a song by English supergroup Bad Company. It is the second and most popular song off their 1975 Straight Shooter. As a single, this song reached number 10 on the Billboard Hot 100. The song was named the 78th best hard rock song of all time by VH1.[1]



Pauline Henry, former singer of The Chimes, covered it in 1994, charting at #12 in the UK.

A cover was released by country music artist Philip Claypool in 1995 on his debut album A Circus Leaving Town. It was the highest-charting of that album's four singles, peaking at #60 on Hot Country Songs.

It was covered by Kid Rock on his self-titled 2003 release. His version peaked at #3 on the Mainstream Rock Tracks charts.

Also, it was featured sung by the character Ned Gerblansky from the TV series South Park on the album Chef Aid: The South Park Album. In this version, Ned "sings" in a monotone through his mechanical larynx. It is used in The Simpsons episode "Skinner's Sense of Snow" in the scene where Homer & Ned try rescuing the kids at school. It is played on the radio and Homer is singing to it. The conversation goes:

Homer: Feel Like Makin' Love
Ned (To Homer): It's a great song. So you really wrote it?
Homer (To Ned): Yeah. As a tribute to Princess Di and Dodi"
