Song of the Day: "Please"

Another Country
I've been operating under the assumption that Rod Stewart, a favorite of mine for many years, and not just for his inspirational ability with fellatio, was coasting into retirement on great American songbook albums or similar works where he puts his blue-eyed soul sound to classic rock or country songs and large sums of money are deposited into one of his various bank accounts. There's nothing wrong with that, per se, it's just a way to lose me as a fan.

So when I saw that Stewart was releasing an album called Another Country I assumed it would have covers of Willie Nelson, Roy Orbison and George Jones. And I was wrong.

It's the first album where Stewart has written or co-written every song since Body Wishes in 1983. That's the one with "Baby Jane" on it.

I can't tell if I love or hate that Rod made a video he probably also made back in 1982 for this song.
