Sailing


I took this photo when we went Whale Watching from Dana Point back in February.

'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.

Do you have a favourite song by Rod Stewart?

  2. I've heard the song, but the first one that came to mind for me was "Come Sail Away" by Styx. Ah, now I have awesome music running through my head. Thanks!

  3. Can't say I'm a fan of Rod Stewart - I don't really like his voice, although I think there is one song I like but I can't remember what it is called - I only know it when I hear it. I love your photo/artwork though; it'd look awesome in my bathroom, which is painted almost this exact blue :) xx
