Blondes Have More Fun
Many artists gave disco a try when it was sweeping the musical world, and Rod Stewart was one of the most successful - his “Da Ya Think I'm Sexy?” topped the singles chart on this day in 1979. It's the most famous track on the singer-songwriter's BLONDES HAVE MORE FUN album, but the Tom Dowd-produced collection isn't strictly for dancefloors; from straight-up rockers (“Dirty Weekend”) to tender ballads (“Best Days of My Life”) to classic R&B (a cover of “Standing in the Shadows of Love”), the ten tracks are pretty diverse. Rod was clearly having a good time here, and because listeners around the world (regardless of hair color) wanted to join in, BLONDES HAVE MORE FUN wound up selling more than 14 million copies.
