Story about this misheard lyric by: Wisnu Aji

And finally, I was lucky. Because, tonight Golden Earring taking my time. So, it giving to "Heat of the Moment". "Heat of the Moment" was played during the time of Golden Earring. The first time ever I hear this song was around two years ago when I was listening to the radio. I hear this song but just half of its length because I want to hear a program that playing rock songs not too late. However, I don't know who singing this song. When I googling the band's name and the song "Heat of the Moment", I found sources that refer to this song and the band's name who singing. When I adding this song into my playlist and later I hear this song over and over again, this is the song, "Heat of the Moment". It sounding like a little bit of The Beatles' harmony, a little bit of King Crimson's progression, and a little bit of Foreigner's music. For the lyrical content, how John Wetton find his hero at that moment? Also, during the second verse, John Wetton mistakenly singing "'22". However, the correct lyrics is "'82". '22 can be refer to 1922. But, in 1922, "Heat of the Moment" was not happens released until 60 years long in 1982. About this song: Foreigner, at that time, creating a music to make REO Speedwagon, Golden Earring, Journey, Survivor, Boston, Heart, Cheap Trick, ZZ Top, Bon Jovi, Europe, Roxette, Giant, Chicago, Bad English, Alias, and other bands sounding like Foreigner. During the rise of Foreigner, a band that formed by John Wetton and friends starting their music. They released their debut studio album that released in 1982 and "Heat of the Moment" was selected as track #1 on that album. It was written by John Wetton and Geoff Downes. "Heat of the Moment" was their major hit to date with reaching #4 on Billboard's Pop Chart and #7 on Germany chart. These charts are faring better for this song. However, on the UK Singles Chart, this pop rock song was just reaching #46 when new wave songs at that time keep reaching the highest position until early 1990s when grunge, Britpop, and hip hop, finally reaching the highest position to make future new wave songs reaching the lowest position. The eponymous album itself was also entering them into one-hit wonder fame with topping Billboard's Pop Albums Chart, reaching #11 on the UK Albums Chart, and also charting well on other albums charts internationally. Before this band that inspired by art rock and AOR music was formed, guitarist Steve Howe and keyboardist Geoff Downes are previously been members of Yes while vocalist and bassist John Wetton was previously been a member of King Crimson.
