Album of the Day
SONG OF THE DAY - "Da Ya Think I'm Sexy?"
When Rod Stewart posed the musical question “Da Ya Think I'm Sexy?” millions replied in the affirmative; the single was a Top 10 hit in nearly 20 countries, topping the U.S. chart for four weeks. The song was co-written by Stewart, drummer Carmine Appice and Duane Hitchings, who described it as “a spoof on guys from the 'cocaine lounge lizards' of the Saturday Night Fever days … Rod, in his brilliance, decided to do a spoof on disco.” A highlight of the BLONDES HAVE MORE FUN album, the track may have had some fun with dance music, but it raised serious money for UNICEF, to which the performer donated royalties. The double-platinum “Da Ya Think I'm Sexy?” was named one of the 500 Greatest Songs of All Time by Rolling Stone, and to celebrate the 40th anniversary of its release, it's our Song of the Day.
