Bad Luck Messin' With Me

Album: not on an album (2001)
  • "Bad Luck Messin' With Me" is one of a number of songs that appear in the 2001 erotic thriller Forbidden Highway. This film may be unremarkable, but the same cannot be said for its soundtrack composer and performer Junior Lightning Boy, because he does not exist! However, as all the songs are said to be copyright 1999 by Hopkins-Olaitan Music, it is safe to assume they were written by Brother Yusef, an unheralded bluesman who deserved better commercial success.

    "Bad Luck Messin' With Me" is thematic and appears about 18 minutes into the film when its lead character, down at heel gambler Elrey is in big trouble having lost not only his own money but that of a man you don't mess with. >>
