CLUB GIRL

THE ORIGINAL SONG THAT BAD GIRL WAS DERIVED FROM

See attached Audio recordings of “Club Girl” & “Bad Girl”; listen to the progression and the blatant copy

VERSION 1 – “CLUB GIRL”

Marino’s initial seed of creativity and artistic expression – original “Club Girl”.

VERSION 2 – “CLUB GIRL”

Marino and Barton then used a drum machine to create and add a ‘beat’.

VERSION 3 – “CLUB GIRL”

Marino, Barton, and Guice complete the lyrics and Guice adds vocals.

VERSION 4 – “BAD GIRL”

Usher’s “Bad Girl” is nothing more than a slavish copy of Marino’s “Club Girl”.
