PLAY: Foreigner – I Don’t Want To Live Without You

A great track from the later years of classic rockers Foreigner.

Scoring the previous hits of “Waiting For A Girl Like You” and “I Want To Know What Love Is”, they once again took to the softer side of things in ’87 with this track. “I Don’t Want To Live Without You” is a beautiful ballad, soft and moody lyrics, with those delicate keyboards as it’s canvas. This one was a modest success on the pop charts as well as the Adult Contemporary, which amazingly still appears every now and again today on AC radio stations, at least in my neck of the woods.

Still it doesn’t get enough plays in my opinion so i share it with you today.
