Bad Boys Blue are a multinational pop group that was formed in Cologne, Germany. The group performed many international hits including “You’re a Woman”, “Pretty Young Girl”, “I Wanna Hear Your Heartbeat”, and “Come Back and Stay”.
Bad Boys Blue was formed in the summer of 1984 by German producer Tony Hendrik and his lyricist wife Karin van Haaren. The original trio comprised Jamaican Trevor “Supa T” Taylor (the original lead vocalist), Briton John McInerney, and American Andrew Thomas. Their debut single “L.O.V.E. In My Car” failed to make an impression in the pop charts but the follow-up “You’re a Woman” was a success, reaching the top 10 in many European countries.
The group became massively popular in Eastern Europe and South Africa, with the band performing to sell-out crowds in Russia and Ukraine. In contrast, the group never charted in the UK, and their only charting U.S. singles were “Save Your Love” (1993) and “Luv 4 U” (1994) which became successful chart hits. Those singles were from two of their albums that were released stateside: Bad Boys Blue (1993) and To Blue Horizons (1994).
