Mariah Carey Covers Foreigner’s “I Want To Know What Love Is”

Mariah’s 12th studio album Memoirs of an Imperfect Angel has been delayed until September 29th, but in the meantime we have her cover of Foreigner’s 1984 hit “I Want To Know What Love Is” to tide us over.

Ms. Carey’s version is a little too faithful to the original for my taste (she even copies the “let’s talk about love” ad-lib at the end), but since the song is now 25 years old, there’s a whole new generation that might be hearing it for the first time.

I’d much rather just listen to her current single “Obsessed” again, which has consistently stayed in the iTunes Top 20 since it was released two months ago.

What’s your opinion of “I Want To Know What Love Is?”
