When it came down to Foreigner in the 70's and 80's, they definitely some of the most driven and shining songs of the eras. But when it also came down to Lou Gramm, Mick Jones and company, they had a strong and solid connection of knowing great songs for all audiences. That is proven well with their classic 1984 opus, I Want To Know What Love Is. The classic song still brings out the best in power ballads from that era, and still feels just as fresh and invigorant today as it did back then. It definitely will always stand out, and doesn't feel like it is wimpy like the cover of the classic that Mariah Carey made as a trainwreck in 2009. All in all, if you're absolutely new to Foreigner or a hard core fan of the AOR music of the 80's, than this a kepper for your MP3 library.

Great song, but the original is much better, buy that one instead.

Everything you love about the original is gone in this remake:
1. Unlike the original, the remake drags on for an extra 16 seconds. Tempo seems about the same, but overall the song seems like it is being artificially drawn out to last longer.
2. The beautiful vocals and choir of the original song are drowned out and not as audible
3. The discordant notes that resolve immediately before each refrain are completely ruined. In the original, they are subtle and work great. In this version, they sound forced and artificial, almost like a pipe organ mixed with the sound of horns from a traffic jam.

I listened to a ton of different artists who sang this song (cover) and none of them came close to the original.

as with many people, I actually first heard of I want to know what love is by foreigner around the time I was between 6-8 years old. From my perspective, I want to know what love is by foreigner explores the singer’s interest in being ready for true love and wanting to be receptive to experiencing it. I want to know what love is by foreigner also has strong background singing to go along with the richness of the layers of meanings accompanying I want to know what love is by foreigner.

A great song. You can FEEL it when the first chords are heard. Very inspired writing and playing, and singing. A classic.

I bought this to put on an album for my wife who likes positive uplifting music. Any one I buy for her must pass through a tiny filter with strict parameters. You can listen to the samples on Amazon before purchasing. Zillions of songs for everyones taste in music.

I must say that Amazon has the best selection for Classic Rock, which will be here for all times. No music will ever compare to the music of that era. I have so far purchased 688 songs from Amazon over the years. Not all Classic Rock, for I do like Christian Hymns very much. But they always have a great selection no matter what genre you are looking for.

I recently bought the song "I Want To Know What Love Is" by Foreigner, as a digital download mp3 file, because I have always liked the song.

The mp3 version sounds very nice and I am most pleased with it! I got this track when it was "on sale" as well, which is a nice bonus!

This is a timeless song. I owned it as a single years ago but it got away from me. My children remember and love it also. I was really excited to see it for sale via Amazon. I can now enjoy it as I did in the past
