Redfella’s Pick of the Day

Urgent” is a song by the AngloAmerican rock band Foreigner, and the first single from their album 4 in 1981.

Foreigner went into the studio with producer Robert John “Mutt” Lange, best known at the time as producer of hard rock band AC/DC. Foreigner’s sound wasn’t quite as heavy, and the band worked with then-unknown Thomas Dolby to program and play synthesizer. Dolby’s work can be heard on “Urgent”, along with a saxophone solo by Motown great Junior Walker.

The song entered the U.S. pop charts the week ending July 4, 1981, and reached #4 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart, holding that spot for the entire month of September.[1] “Urgent” hit #1 on the Billboard Top Tracks chart, a position it held for four weeks.
