Washington (ANI): Rock star Bruce Springsteen's wife Patti Scialfa got drunk to record a song, so that she could get into the character of a boozed-up woman courting a man in a bar. The character was created by Scialfa for the track 'Bad For You,' which was recorded for her new album 'Play it as it Lays'. Scialfa told Rolling Stone magazine, that the song tells the tale of the character and she knocked back tequila to get in the spirit of the track.

"I wanted to get to that person in the song: the girl that's drinking, maybe flirting too much and sending signals she shouldn't be sending," Contactmusic quoted Scialfa, as telling the magazine. "The recording studio was too sterile for that, so I drank a ton of tequila, smoked a lot of cigarettes and sang it. "I know I sang out of tune, but I liked it, she added. Scialfa asserted that the song is in response to a song written by her husband Bruce Springsteen that she hates.

"On (Springsteen album) Devils + Dust, there's a song about the man in the hotel room with the hooker... "I was like, What are you writing about that s**t for? Are you f**king crazy?' But that's what led me to write Bad For You. He gave himself license, so I gave myself license to write," she said.
