Song #74: "Long Long Way From Home"--Foreigner (1977)

There were three singles released from the debut album from Foreigner, today's song being the last one late in 1977.

And though it didn't fare as well on the charts as "Feels Like The First Time" and "Cold As Ice", over the years, it has grown to be my favorite Foreigner song. It's a simple premise that most of us have experienced in our lives either short-term or long-term, and that's dealing with being away from our home, whether that be a place of residence, or, in this case, not in your hometown and familiar surroundings.

Classic Foreigner sound that was so fresh and invigorating 40 years ago when this song first debuted, and to me, a sound very unique, and timeless.  :)
