You've Got It Bad Girl is a 1973 album by Quincy Jones.[1]

The title track is a song written by Stevie Wonder and originally released on his 1972 triple grammy winning album Talking Book. The version of Superstition from the same album features singers Bill Withers, Billy Preston and Wonder himself, billed as 'The Beautiful Brothers'.

The eighth track, Sanford and Son Theme (The Streetbeater), was edited into two parts, and used for the opening and closing credits themes for NBC's Sanford and Son.

The final track on the album, "Chump Change", was first used as the main theme to 1972's The New Bill Cosby Show on CBS, where Jones's orchestra provided music. The CBS game show Now You See It used "Chump Change" as its main theme as well, both in 1974 and on its revival in 1989. It is also used as the main theme to the Dutch radio program Langs de lijn.
