Foreigner - "Urgent" Live In Chicago (Official)

Foreigner - "Urgent" Live In Chicago (Official)

"Urgent" is a song by the British-American rock band Foreigner, and the first single from their hit album 4 in 1981.

Foreigner went into the studio with producer Robert John "Mutt" Lange, best known at the time as producer for hard rock band AC/DC. Foreigner's sound wasn't quite as heavy, and the band worked with then-unknown Thomas Dolby to program and play synthesizer. Dolby's work can be heard on "Urgent", along with a saxophone solo by Motown artist Junior Walker.


You're not shy, you get around You wanna fly, don't want your feet on the ground You stay up, you won't come down You wanna live, you wanna move to the sound

Got fire in your veins Burnin' hot but you don't feel the pain Your desire is insane You can't stop until you do it again

But sometimes I wonder as I look in your eyes Maybe you're thinking of some other guy But I know, yes I know, how to treat you right That's why you call me in the middle of the night

You say it's urgent So urgent, so oh oh urgent Just wait and see How urgent my love can be It's urgent

You play tricks on my mind You're everywhere but you're so hard to find You're not warm or sentimental You're so extreme, you can be so temperamental

But I'm not looking for a love that will last I know what I need and I need it fast Yeah, there's one thing in common that we both share That's a need for for each other anytime, anywhere

It gets so urgent So urgent You know it's urgent I wanna tell you it's the same for me So oh oh urgent Just you wait and see How urgent our love can be It's urgent

You say it's urgent Make it fast, make it urgent Do it quick, do it urgent Gotta rush, make it urgent Want it quick Urgent, urgent, emergency Urgent, urgent, emergency Urgent, urgent, emergency Urgent, urgent, emergency So urgent, emergency Emer emer emer It's urgent
