There are certain songs that transcend musical genres and manage to become something that everybody knows and likes, regardless of demographic. These songs only come along once in a while. In 1977, FOREIGNER made one of these songs, and I’ve got a VINYL RIP of it for you.
COLD AS ICE
Now, I’m not gonna say that literally “everybody” loves this song, but I will say that most people do. Even if ROCK isn’t your thing at all, Cold As Ice has been remixed in to pretty much every genre of electronic music imaginable, in most cases over and over again. It’s the undeniably catchy piano line, and easily singable, unforgettable vocals of the chorus that give the song its mass appeal. You can drop this tune in almost any club and have it met with cheers and voices crooning along. You only need to hear it once and it gets imprinted in your mind forever. It has to be one of the catchiest songs of all time.
I don’t have much to write about Foreigner, as a band, but I have nothing but respect for them for giving the world such a great tune.

Yes, they did have some other good tunes. Don’t get your panties in a twist.
