Foreigner's Mick Jones Looks Back At 'I Want To Know What Love Is' Track

Mick Jones, guitarist for Foreigner, recently dished on the writing of the band's hit, "I Want to Know What Love Is." Speaking with Classic Rock magazine, Jones says the song was gifted to him by a higher power:

"I don't know where it came from. I consider it a gift that was sent through me. I think there was something bigger than me behind it. I'd say it was probably written entirely by a higher force."

He also dished on the recording of the track, which he claims was helped along by a band prayer:

"We did a few takes, and it was good, but it was still a bit tentative. So then they all got round in a circle, held hands and said The Lord's Prayer. And it seemed to inspire them, because after that they did it in one take. I was in tears, because my mum and dad were in the studio too, and it was so emotional."
