As Foreigner progressed into the 1980's, the guitar-heavy style of their early work gave way to slick arrangements that pushed electronics to the fore. A good example of this balancing act was "Say You Will," a hit from Inside Information that tempered its rock guitar edge with an array of electronic textures. The lyrics take on a macho tone as they present a would-be romeo demanding to know if he stands a chance with a hesitant lover: "Say you will, say you won’t/Make up your mind tonight/Say you will, Say you will/Be my guiding light." The music adds the appropriate amount of drama by combining churning verse melodies that ebb and flow in a rhythmic style with a bombastic chorus that pushes forward its soaring phrases in a similarly rhythmic fashion. It seems like the perfect setup for a pure hard-rock outing but Foreigner’s recording of "Say You Will" adds a hefty dose of pop-flavored ear candy in the form of an electronic-tinged arrangement: Mick Jones’ chugging guitar lines and Lou Gramm’s quasi-operatic vocals are tempered by thick layers of chiming synthesizers that soften the sound’s overall edge. The result was a song that put the ‘pop’ back in pop-rocker and fit the mood of its times perfectly with its high technical gloss. Thus, it was no surprise when "Say You Will" became another top-10 hit for Foreigner and helped pump up the sales of Inside Information. It remains one of their highlights of their 1980's output and a staple of Foreigner compilations.
