 "As soon as the audience would hear it, they would start cheering before we even played a note." - Lou Gramm of Foreigner tells us about the writing and recording of the track that had the greatest impact on his career, "Waiting For A Girl Like You." It was kept from the top spot in 1982, by Olivia Newton-John's "Physical," something which left Gramm "with a little sour taste," but it nonetheless led to more Foreigner ballads, not an easy transition for a rock singer: http://www.songfacts.com/blog/playingmysong/lou_gramm_-_waiting_for_a_girl_like_you_/
