“Did I Write That?”

“Did I Write That?”

Mick Jones of Foreigner wrote the song: “I Want to Know What Love Is” on the album: Agent Provocateur in 1984.  He wrote it about circumstances in his own life, but that it has taken on more meaning than he’d initially imagined. Here he talks about the effect it has had on listeners:

“So many people relate to me the importance and the meaning that it’s had to them in their lives. I get all kinds of correspondence from people for whom that song has been an incredible and important part of their life, something that has helped them through some really bad patches, or some tragedy, or some joy sometimes. It’s kind of one of those things — it’s like, ‘Did I write that?’”
