Covid Island Discs
Day 370: Cold as Ice, Foreigner

The band Foreigner certainly deserves its place in Covid Island Discs and have produced some really great hits over the years. This one is probably their most famous and certainly suits my musical tastes because it is so intense musically. The anger in this song reminds me a lot of the Queen hit “Death on Two Legs”.
Another great thing about this song is the piano riff which is so distinctive and probably what most people remember about this hit
