Mike Scheid of FedEx Supply Chain identified the pop song mentioned in our October issue as "Cold as ice." That means he'll be warming up his winter mornings with hot bevvies from Joey Kramer's Rockin' & Roastin' Organic Coffee.

"Cold as ice" is also the title of a song by the band Foreigner. The British-American band was started in New York by London-born guitarist Mick Jones (not to be confused with the Clash guitarist of the same name). Jones co-wrote the song with vocalist Lou Gramm; it appeared on their 1977 self-titled debut album and reached number 6 on the Billboard Hot 100. Gramm and Jones went on to write many more hits for the group, including "Double vision," "Feels like the first time," "Hot blooded," and "Jukebox hero."

Jones reportedly came up with the band's name to reflect its makeup: three Brits (Jones; fellow Londoner Ian McDonald, who'd played saxophone with progressive-rock group King Crimson; and British drummer Dennis Elliot) and three Americans (Gramm; keyboardist Al Greenwood, and bassist Ed Gagliardi).

Foreigner is among the 50 best-selling bands of all time, according to Business Insider. The band still tours today, with Jones as the only original member.
