Idle Query: Rod Stewart

Apparently, Tonight’s the Night was originally refused airplay, in some quarters, because of:

You’d be a fool to stop this tide
Spread your wings and let me come inside

Pretty bad, but this is worse:

Don’t say a word my virgin child
Just let your inhibitions run wild

As for that first line, well, ewww.  Double ewww.

As for the second, if you want the girl to loosen up, Rod, her inhibitions need to run away, or fly away.  Or her passions need to run wild, or her desires should run wild.  If her inhibitions run wild, that means she becomes really, really, crazily, unashamedly inhibited.

It’s your song, Rod, so I guess it’s your call.  Maybe you like ’em that way.

One thought on “Idle Query: Rod Stewart

  1. Billboard’s top 10 sexiest songs of all time

    1. “Physical” – Olivia Newton-John
    2. “Tonight’s The Night” – Rod Stewart
    3. “I’ll Make Love To You” – Boyz II Men

    This is based on chart performance, so I clearly have no idea what people want.
