Late, Late Night FDL: I Want to Know What Love Is

Ryan Adams – I Want To Know What Love Is (Live on World Cafe)

Mick Jones happened to hear Ryan’s cover on NPR’s World Cafe…

Mick Jones has taken to Facebook to praise Ryan Adams‘ new version of ‘I Want to Know What Love Is,’ Foreigner‘s chart-topping 1984 hit.

“I happened to write that song you just did a cover on,” Jones says in the message, “and I just wanted to say a few words about it. I think you’ve really done it proud. I think it’s great to hear your voice on it. I’ve been a fan of yours for a long time, and I turned the rest of the guys onto you. I love it, man. Great organ sound, too. So, bravo.”

Adams covered ‘I Want to Know What Love Is’ as part of a stop at NPR’s World Cafe, in a performance that “strips the song down to its essential components and makes it both bigger and sadder,” according to Sterogum.
