Listen to Foreigner’s ‘Cold as Ice’ from The Flash, Season 8, Episode 7


Rock band Foreigner’s ‘Cold as Ice‘ was played on the new episode of The Flash last night — The Flash, Season 8, Episode 7, “Lockdown“.

The song was heard as Caitlin and Marcus arrive at the bar and come across Mark and Frost singing the song. And yep, Foreigner’s version is better!

Foreigner’s ‘Cold as Ice‘ was first released in 1977 on the band’s debut studio album, and has since become one of Foreigner’s most well-known and well-loved songs.

Upon release, it made it to #6 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart and #10 on the Cashbox Top 100 chart.

The haunting track also charted high in Australia, Canada, Belgium and the Netherlands, and was certified Gold in the U.S. and Silver in the United Kingdom.

The song starts with that now iconic piano intro, which sets the stage for lead singer’s Lou Gramm’s massive vocals.

The two together beautifully describe a frigid relationship where, no matter what the man does, the woman will never reciprocate his feelings in the way he wants her to.

But, as the man tells her right from the beginning, he is sure her attitude will not end well for her:

You’re as cold as ice
You’re willing to sacrifice our love
You never take advice
Someday you’ll pay the price, I know

Band members and writers Lou Gramm and Mick Jones, however, were quick to point out it was not based on any woman they knew.

Listen to Foreigner’s ‘Cold as Ice‘ from The Flash in the song’s official music video.

You can also hear it on the expanded edition of the British-American rock band’s self-titled first album.
