The Classic Albums: Badfinger's 'Straight Up' (Jan 18, 2010) 
Interview by Joe Matera 
Do you remember what sort of budget was allocated by Apple for the recording of the album? 
Joey Molland: 
Parts of our recording deal with Apple Records, was that they paid for all our recording costs – which they never recouped incidentally - so I never saw a recording budget. The deal was that they would pay for all the recording costs and all the coats and never recoup. Instead they would just pay the band something like 5%. The publishing deal we had with Apple was a routine deal, where they got the publishing and we got the writers, a 50/50 deal.

On the choice of "Baby Blue" for the "Breaking Bad" finale:

I didn't know it was going to happen, actually. That it was on the show was a complete shock. The phone started ringing the next day, and it was people from The New York Times or "Access Hollywood." Then I did an interview on TV for another of those Hollywood shows, and the guy started asking me about the series, and I had to say, "Well, I haven't actually watched it. I'd heard about it but I thought, "Hmm, it's about a guy who deals meth?" And I didn't see the greatness of that. People are dying all over the country from drugs. So I missed it.

Plus, the questions I DID get weren't about the song, but how great it was that overnight we got the number one download or whatever. Which is nice, but, you know, what about Pete's song or maybe the band?

On what the first post-"Breaking Bad" royalty check was like:

Well, again, it was Pete's song. Originally, we all shared royalties for each other's songs but, when a person dies, as Pete did, 20 years later the copyright reverts to the family. So I guess the show's reps had approached Pete's family. And good for them.

[Interview] The Stories Behind Badfinger's Straight Up album with Joey Molland (April 15, 2018)

[Interview] The Stories Behind Badfinger's Straight Up album with Joey Molland (April 15, 2018)
I’d Die Babe 

I had most of the lyrics, but a few of the lines were iffy to me, so I really wasn’t going to do it. It was George Harrison who really liked the song. He thought it was great—he thought it would be a single for us. So he sat down and worked on the lyrics with me. He was the guy who said, “What about ‘you make my daisy grow high?’” George played those low guitar licks—those are his. He and I played acoustic on the backing track, and of course Pete played the lead guitar solo and keyboard on that. But about the song itself: It’s just a fun little song with a nice groove to it. I haven’t really done that song on stage since back in the day. We do it now, and it really does pick the record up now—doesn’t it?
Day After Day 

He (Leon Russell) was incredible. He listened to the song once in the control room, went down into the studio, played it one time and then recorded the piano part. He heard the song three times and that was it. Absolutely gorgeous, absolutely beautiful. 

You know, he played guitar on "Suitcase" too. Yeah, a couple of days later he came by and we were doing "Suitcase" where George did that arrangement on it. Leon was listening to it and said to me, “I’ve got an idea for the guitar part, do you mind if I play it?” And I said, “No of course not.” And I gave him my guitar. So you know, in the second verse, that little stabby-accent thing? That’s Leon Russell playing that. He just put it in there on the other side of the beat. Just like that. He came up to me at the Bangladesh concert and said, “You wrote that song 'Suitcase', didn’t you? That’s a fantastic song, man?” Could you imagine Leon Russell telling you one of your songs was fantastic?
