'Sailing' by Rod Stewart was released in 1975. It was previously recorded by 'The Sutherland Brothers' but I've never heard of them! Have you?
If I was asked to name a Rod Stewart song, my first thought would be 'Sailing', I don't know why?
It was a No.1 hit for Rod for 4 weeks in the UK and it remains his best selling single. It only reached No.58 in the USA.
It was re-released in 1987 as a charity single for the Zeebrugge ferry disaster.
You can listen to it here and watch the video. It looks like Rod has quite a bit of make up on!
It's a nice song, very relaxing. I'm not sure I have a favourite Rod Stewart song...I think I like them all.
