101 Urgent - Foreigner Urgent - Foreigner

Should be much higher. That sax solo is magnificent, and is so high pitched on a tenor, wow, As a sax player for years, this is a big, great song

Best use of sax since Baker Street. The song just oozes raw lust!

What is this song doing all the way down here? Should be at least in the top 20.

Guys, how can this song be missed- quite surprising! Should be figured in the list of top five songs ever..

Get this higher. What a crime to be 86.

This song should be higher than 92. It is the most dramatic, incredible, strong sounding song I've ever heard. They recorded this song when Freddie could barely walk!
