December Theme #6

Welcome to day 6 of some personal favourites for my December theme this year.

Written by David Bentley in the 1960s, he didn’t believe his voice was right for the vocals so roped in Rod Stewart. Originally released in 1970, it didn’t reach the charts, but following on from Rod Stewart’s popularity, it fared better when re-released in 1972.
This was the year I left school and started work, taking an interest in varying my musical taste. I remember several of my classmates had been drooling over Rod Stewart with the spiky hair and tight trousers (I always saw Kenny Everett with a big balloon bum instead), but I appreciate his vocals more these days .
Rod Stewart was not originally credited as lead singer here, though in later years he was recognised as a ‘guest artist’. The single entered the UK charts in September, peaking at number 3 in October.

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have an elderly dog called Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

    Another unknown to me gem. 😀
    My friend liked Rod Stewart, whereas I preferred Bowie. I find Rod’s voice too gravelly!

  2. That’s a blast from the past. Not heard that one in ages.
