Iz svetovne glasbene zakladnice … pesem dneva

Delite:
Sedmega marca leta 1985 je vrh avstralskih in kanadskih glasbenih lestvic zasedala pesem z naslovom I want to know what love is (Hočem vedeti, kaj je ljubezen) britansko-ameriške skupine Foreigner.
Pesem je sicer izšla novembra 1984 kot nosilni single petega albuma skupine z naslovom Agent Provocateur. Od pomembnejših lestvic je – poleg v prvem stavku omenjenih – osvojila tudi obe najpomembnejši: britansko in ameriško lestvico malih plošč. Vse do danes (skupina je v spremenjeni zasedbi še vedno aktivna) ostaja ta pesem njihova največja uspešnica.
Težko bi trdili, da je song sam po sebi tipičen za to skupino, saj je večino svoje kariere bolj težila k rockerskim ritmom. Kakrokoli že, pesem se redno uvršča na sezname najbolj predvajanih pesmi.
V reviji Rolling Stone so je med 500 najpopularnejšimi skladbami vseh časov uvrstili na 479. mesto.

I’ve gotta take a little time
A little time to think things over
I better read between the lines
In case I need it when I’m older
Ohhh
Now this mountain I must climb
Feels like the world upon my shoulders
Up through the clouds I see love shine
It keeps me warm as life grows colder
In my life there’s been heartache and pain
I don’t know if I can face it again
Can’t stop now, I’ve traveled so far
To change this lonely life
I wanna know what love is
I want you to show me
I wanna feel what love is
I know you can show me
Oh, oh, ooh
I’m gonna take a little time
A little time to look around me
I’ve got nowhere left to hide
It looks like love has finally found me
In my life there’s been heartache and pain
I don’t know if I can face it again
Can’t stop now, I’ve traveled so far
To change this lonely life
I wanna know what love is
I want you to show me
I wanna feel what love is
I know you can show me
I wanna know what love is
I want you to show me
(And I wanna feel) I wanna feel what love is
(I know) I know you can show me
I wanna know what love is
(Love that you feel inside) I want you to show me
(And I’m feeling so much love) I wanna feel what love is
(Oh, you just can’t hide) I know you can show me
Oh, oh
I wanna know what love is
(Let’s talk about love) I want you to show me
(I wanna feel it) I wanna feel what love is (I wanna feel it, too)
(And I know, and I know) I know you can show me
Show me that it’s real, yeah
Yeah, yeah
I wanna know what love is (I wanna know, oh, oh)
I want you to show me (I wanna know, I wanna know, I wanna know)
I want to feel what love is (I wanna feel)
I know you can show me
