Love on the Telephone

I was wondering what you think about this song from Head Games. I think it's one of their best songs they ever recorded and I wonder why they never released it as a single.
I love it it because of its dynamics, the song structure and the two solo's featured in the track, what do you think?

Did they ever played it live? If not, that would be a shame, because I think the track is really suited to play live.

I'm confident they played it here in '79 on the "Head Games" tour.  I also THINK I heard them do it in 2003.  It's all getting fuzzy for me now.

I do know that when I first heard it, I thought "good song", and that was it.

At some point over the last 20 years when I heard it, I thought......OMG! Foreigner wrote a song about phone sex.  :rolleyes:  Who knew?!

;)

P.S.   I think it's obvious THAT isn't what the song is about........but like the words "gay", "fat" (now phat) and "sick" all have very different meanings TODAY, you wonder just how differently things (lyrics) can and will be interpreted in the years to come.
