...you're willing to sacrifice our love.
You never take advice,
but someday you'll pay the price, I know.
I've seen it before, it happens all the time.
You're closing the door, you leave the world behind.
You're digging for gold, yet throwing away
A fortune in feelings, but someday you'll pay...
Cold As Ice is one of those inescapable staples of Top 40/Classic rock radio (you've probably heard it at least twice today) so when I read this interview with Foreigner's Mick Jones recently, I was slightly delighted:
"What else - well, "Cold As Ice" was written after watching the movie Mommy Dearest with Joan Crawford, and whimsical as it was, that was the inspiration."
Never mind that he spelled the title wrong or that he doesn't even seem to understand the difference between the real Joan Crawford and Faye Dunaway as Joan Crawford, what the Hell:
Even driving to work, just listening to random rock music, it really is all about Joan!
