Today's Happy Hour Soundtrack...

... in part.  Rod Stewart (and Faces), before he turned into a lounge-lizard.

Yea I'll pay your cab fare home
You can even use my best cologne
Just don't be here in the morning when I wake up
I liked the OLD Rod a whole helluva lot better than the New Rod.  But, Hell... we ALL get older.

  1. The Faces-era Rod Stewart, and immediately thereafter, is Good Shit.

    1971 was pretty sad musically. Started out with "My Sweet Lord", passed through Donny Osmond, and ended with "Brand New Key". Can't say I contributed anything to their millionaire coffers at the juke box I sat next to.

    1. I think it was pretty damned good, actually, except for that Deutschendorf guy at #8. Brown Sugar, Just My Imagination, Tired of Bein' Alone, and many, many more from '71 are in my music collection.

  3. I thought a lounge lizard was a teacher who hung out in the teacher's lounge. I do like Rod - anytime.

  4. I'm with Lou. I like the old Rod, and the growed up one, too.

  5. I think his best one is 'My Heart Can't Tell Me No'. Gets to me every time.

  7. I like the old and new Rod. That said - given a choice I will take the old Rod first.

  8. The Faces were a great group, vastly underrated for the most part even with Stewart and Wood in the mix.

Just be polite... that's all I ask.
