Spacepig Pig | 1445 comments Now then, I think most of us will know something or other by this lot, plenty out there to choose from anyway. Any introduction that Jemma cares to offer would be most welcome though.

I think we all know the rules by now, any doubts just ask.

As ever, nominations close at 10 pm Sunday night.

And a reminder, if you owe us a nomination for the next round, please donate here>:

Brass Neck | 3675 comments Was there ever a more English tale of amour in 70's working class homes? From the pen and vocals of Ronnie Lane and Rod's contribution is limited to the mouth organ I think. I love the intro to bits.

Lez | 7490 comments Jemma, does Ronnie Lane qualify?


message 16: by Brass Neck (new)

Brass Neck | 3675 comments Thanks for that Lez but Ronnie Lane, Ian McLagen, Ronnie Wood and the drummer chap were all in the Small Faces which became the Faces and Rod's on the track, he just isn't singing lead. If it doesn't qualify with such a loose requirement as 'Small Faces/Steve Mariott/Rod Stewart/band or solos' then ..................


message 17: by Jemma (new)

Jemma | 812 comments Morning Lez. Yep, he qualifys anything and everyone you know I like to include everything and as Brass said....😎

Gordon (skiiltan) | 2936 comments I'm finding this really difficult. I'll nominate this now because I think it was The Faces' best single but it never gets heard these days. I have another Small Faces song in mind though and I might have to change my nomination if someone else doesn't pick it.

I actually think that's a decent record, tech (although obviously I didn't think so at the time). I'm just very relieved there's no Sailing.

An old favourite.

I much preferred the original of Sailing by The Sutherland Brothers

Many years ago we went to see the Tall Ships leaving Gateshead. It was a lovely day and people in the high rise flats near the shore had opened their windows and were cheering and waving flags. Someone started playing ‘Sailing’ and gradually lots of people joined in and I hate to say it, but it was all quite emotional!

Gordon (skiiltan) | 2936 comments Derek wrote: "I much preferred the original of Sailing by The Sutherland Brothers"

So did I. Even that wasn't great but it was an awful lot better than Rod's version. I'd be interested to know what you thought of Rod's Tom Waits covers (Downtown Train and Tom Traubert's Blues). I thought they were abominable but it's possible you preferred them to the originals.

I generally prefer bands that don't have singers, and it's often interesting to find out who the creative forces are. The former Mrs D was shocked when she heard an interview with Roger Daltrey & Pete Townsend: she had never previously realized either (a) how thick & thuggish Daltrey was or (b how small a contribution to the creation of the band's songs he made.

Gordon - Smiler was the last Rod album that I have any time for. Bought Atlantic Crossing when it came out played it once and that was it for me, never bought anything else of Rod.s after that so hadn't heard his versions of the two songs above.

Just listened to both Rod and Tom versions and can honestly say that I hated them all fairly equally. I simply cannot understand the appeal of Tom Waits but that's just me. Equally the Rod Stewart versions take all the emotion and feeling out of the songs and turn them into fairly mindless pap.

Incidentally, am I the only person who can't hear Do You Think I'm Sexy? without immediately visualising the Kenny Everett parody:-)

I think everyone was waiting for someone else to nominate it, like I'm still waiting for someone to nominate the Small Faces' other hugely catchy single.

Was it a bit over-played on the radio in 1967, Lez? There are a few records I hated at the time they were hits because I got sick of hearing them, but now I quite like them. Womack & Womack's Teardrops is a good example. I heard it at least 10 times a day between autumn 1988 and summer 1989 because my colleagues kept playing Crapital Radio in the lab (no matter how often I switched it off) and consequently I couldn't stand it. After about 20 years' remission I came to like it.


message 34: by Tech XXIII (new)

Tech XXIII  | 6440 comments I agree. after not hearing any particular rod stewart song for a great number of years, I find that this is not long enough!


message 35: by Lez (new)

Lez | 7490 comments Yes it was overplayed, with so few radio outlets, most things were. I don’t loathe it, it’s just irritating, as is the silly title.
I can’t think of any songs I’ve changed my mind about - most from that era are blessedly forgotten!

I have to confess that even after 16 years I still can't bear to hear a single note of Everything I Do (I Do It for You), or, indeed, of anything by Bryan Adams.
