Thursday unprofessionalism

Genuinely awesome footage of Rod Stewart on Top of the Pops reading his own lyrics off a bit of yellow paper: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BJo3w66JorM

Annoyingly, I love this song.  Stewart has never been very good at the old lyrics and in later years TORTURED them to fit the rhyme.  Here, he just doesn’t care: if he can’t think of a rhyme, fuck it: he just pretends one wasn’t required.  I can’t decide whether I respect that or not.

Great song anyway and some fierce bass playing.  And about a thousand people just milling about for no reason.

That was the year I was born.  I’m going to go ahead and assume it was the exact second I was born.
