About this song

Released in 1984. Originally recorded by Foreigner, the song was written by their guitarist Mick Jones. When asked about Mariah Carey's version of I Want To Know What Love Is , he told Songfacts: "I think she's put a lot of emotion into it. You can feel that she's gotten inside of the song."
