Waiting For A Girl Like You by Foreigner

Being that close to 1 with such a strong song and not quite making it, leaves you with a little sour taste, I admit, although our album was 1 on the Album Chart for 10 weeks, which was very satisfying. We tried a number of different things that were okay, but didn't quite do the job that we needed it to do. In those days we had plenty of other rock goods to satisfy him. Actually, the only song I like from this band. Like a teenage boy with raging hormones, I walked into the control room and immediately asked 'Who was that?

What he had was a couple of lines, including the line behind the verse. This song made me want to puke. The song made it to 2 on the Hot Hundred. I don't remember what city, but I'm sure we played it on our first show of our next tour. I began serenading her as if she were the girl I'd been waiting for all my life. We played the song and just let him play over the top of it and wherever else he thought felt good to him.

It has become one of the band's most successful songs worldwide, peaking at number 2 on the and number 1 on 's chart. The distinctive theme was performed by the then-little-known. Just like when Boston had the nerve to release Amanda. After we finished a song we would do a little cassette demo of piano and drum machine and vocal and then we would play it for management first, and then the record company. During that process Mick again gave me a cassette of musical riffs, and he had this thing that sounded oriental the way he was doing it. I was only 9, but remember very well when this was top on the charts in February 1982! And I would have liked to say something to her.

All I know is that she inspired me to hit all the right notes for that ballad. But the next time we got together we would always come back to it. We thought we had something really good with the verse melody and the lyric line, and we needed something really strong to bring that home for the chorus. We worked on it for a number of days, as I recall. He was just hitting two notes at a time on a piano.

The Billboard Book of Top 40 Hits, 8th Edition Billboard Publications , page 234. But as far as waiting for someone like her, both for the writing and the performing of the song, Lou did want to backtrack somewhat from his printed sentiments. I was fantasizing about girls I had crushes on while listening to this song. He writes that this ephemeral beauty vanished, and he has never discerned her identity. Obviously, it was a very lucrative song, too, because of all that. I'm coming over, play me something. I hear these days that it's a song that a lot of people play at their weddings.

Sometimes you have an idea about a song, or you have a title that you base the rest of the song on, but sometimes it comes just literally from an unknown area. Our working pattern was that we would work on something until we just flat out had no more ideas, then we'd put it aside and work on something else. As soon as the audience would hear it, they would start cheering before we even played a note. I had no idea what it meant, but it got to the point where I couldn't even be in the studio when we were recording it sometimes, it left such a deep impression on me. We never did track her down, and to this day I have no idea who she was.
