Released as the follow-up single to the song “Say You Will”, “I Don’t Want to Live Without You” peaked at #5 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart in May 1988. It was the band’s sixteenth (and, to date, final) entry on the Billboard pop Top 40.

On the Billboard adult contemporary chart, the song became Foreigner’s only #1 hit, spending one week atop the tally the week of May 14, 1988. The band had previously reached the Top 5 on the AC chart twice, with the songs “Waiting for a Girl Like You” (#5 in 1981) and “I Want to Know What Love Is” (#3 in 1985).

Although a huge standard by any country’s charting method, the band’s sales were certainly plummeting since the release of 4 in 1981. It was the last album to feature the 80’s core lineup of Gramm, Jones, Wills and Elliott.
