Song 322 (Foreigner--"Long, Long Way From Home")
I realized that Foreigner has not graced my list as of yet. This morning "Long, Long Way From Home" was played on the radio and I felt it would be an excellent choice. This straight-up rocker has a lot of descent hooks that really grab the attention of the listener. Probably the best ones are in the interludes with the way they mix the guitar and synthesizer. The whole song is very tight and well arranged. Of course, it does have the early Foreigner sound before they smoothed and mellowed out their music, which is a definite plus.
Here is the studio version on YouTube.
