Foreigner


Some music in the late 1970's and through the 1980's carried with it a style that I can only describe as magical.

Mick Jones led Foreigner since its inception. The first release came with Foreigner in 1977 and featured such songs as "Feels like the First Time"and "Cold as Ice". They released Double Vision in 1978 with "Hot Blooded" and "Double Vision". Head Games came in 1979. Urgent debuted in 1981, which included "Waiting for a Girl Like You", "Juke Box Hero" and "Break it Up". They released their last album, Agent Provocateur in 1984 with "I want to Know What Love Is".

Music is like a time machine. You play the song that you heard whenever and it evokes a memory.

These bands were specialists in their field.

Some of the 70's music was just that . . . music.

I love Foreigner. And Bread. And Air Supply. They don't make them like they used to.

I had insomnia as a young teenager - anxiety at night that the world was asleep and I was alone. I hated it, and didn't understand it. Its very powerful when I hear these songs, and brings back those memories. However, The Night Shift by the Commodores in 1985 is one of my favorite songs - couldn't figure it out for a while, but then I realized it was one that made me feel better. Funny stuff.

@Race Bannon - The Night Shift by The Commodores is one of my all time favourite songs! And I was only 3 years old when it was released!
