It was such a unique song, with several variations. It took up the entire side of the album (you know, those big round spinning things!

      I was going to University (know you know how old I am), working the summer and managing a football team. I would listen to that song a lot.

      I loved so many of his songs - Morning Has Broken, Peace Train, Father and Son, Oh Very Young, Can't Keep It In, The Hurt.....and more. A special voice and a special musical talent.

      I just listened to Foreigner Suite yesterday for the first time. Very impressed. I only know a few of his songs as his heyday was well before my time (sorry Can!). I didn't even know he played the piano!

        Because I was a fan of Cat back then, I bought that album without ever hearing the song Foreigner Suite. I think I knew one song on that album, and trusted my gut. So when I came home to play it, I was wondering if I had made a mistake. One song that I never heard, filling up one side of the record! As I listened I realized I liked it right away. The twists and turns, the musical skill, the interesting song construction. After that I was hooked on the song, and listened to it daily for a month or two. You know, one of those summers as a teenager, not fully knowing where life would go, and also not knowing who I really was. But life was good that year, as I was doing well in my Commerce studies, and liking the summer vibe. Still very unsure, but looking forward.

            The performance starts at about 48 seconds in, after the guys talk a little, which is kinda cool in itself. This was fairly vintage Beatles in black and white.

                This is classic Dylan way back, and it's not til about the 1:14 minute mark he starts to play. Great song and there's a long list of those who sang it.

                              "Who Wants to Live Forever" is a song by the British rock band Queen. A power ballad, it is the sixth track on the album A Kind of Magic, which was released in June 1986, and was written by lead guitarist Brian May for the soundtrack to the film Highlander. The song is used to frame the scenes in the film where Connor MacLeod must endure his beloved wife Heather MacLeod growing old and dying while he, as an Immortal, remains forever young.

                                Forever Young - Rod Stewart (1988)



                                HOWEVER....It's a song by Bob Dylan, recorded in November 1973. The song first appeared (in two different versions, one slow and one fast) on Dylan's fourteenth studio album Planet Waves (1974).

                                Rod Stewart recorded a song titled "Forever Young" that was released as a single and included on his 1988 album Out of Order. Stewart's manager, Arnold Stiefel, said, "[I]t would be fair to say that while the melody and the music is not at all the same [as Dylan's song], the idea of the song is similar. The architecture of the lyrics of the song is very much from Dylan–there are definite similarities." The similarities were enough to cause Stiefel to contact Dylan, who requested a share of the royalties, and Stewart agreed.

                                Here's Bob's song:
