For a storied 1980s rock band such as Foreigner, 1987's Inside Information was a decent album... But it stands out on the strength of one of the band's greatest singles, "Say You Will."
It was a cleaner, more mature, more refined sound than that which had made the band in the late 70's and early 80's, with their earlier hits such as "Hot Blooded."
But what makes this song so exemplary is the fact that is represented by one of my favorite videos of the 1980s. The black and white crisp photography, the art direction, and the shady glimpses of excess truly capture in a single video the essence of what made features like Wall Street and Bright Lights, Big City successes in their time.
Enjoy the video...
