Default Re: Foreigner - I Want To Know What Love Is

Personally, I'd settle for remembering what love is ...

I do remember many years ago excitedly buying the debut album of this new band with Ian McDonald in it ... Ian McDonald! ... Ian McDonald, leading light of King Crimson's legendary In the Court of the Crimson King!

Who knows what amazing new music lies within this thin cardboard cover! Grandiosity! Virtuosity! Innovations! Crazy time changes! Something special that's out of the ordinary! That touch of genius!

With trembling hand I put the needle to the vinyl and ... WTF???!!?? ... just poppy AOR. Dime a dozen.

Rats.

Mellowed by age I heard the song again on the car radio the other day for the first time in years - and enjoyed it. It's very good for what it is.
