Thanks to the One2One Network for sending me a copy of Rod Stewart's New Album: " Time". Ana and I have been dancing and singing around to it for the past week or so. Our favorite song together is "Brighton Beach" although I love singing to Ana his first cut on the album:"She makes me Happy". Well, because she does.
The album is all that I have come to enjoy from Rod. A combination of pop/rock easy breezy lyrics and fun car tunes that get in the head and are car hummable.? Is that a word? Easy to hum to in the car. Here is a breakdown of my fave songs from the album and a couple of video sneak peeks so you can see for yourself that Rod still has it!
She Makes Me Happy
- With an infectious chorus and a joyous vocal, this sets the tone of what’s to come. While it has a modern sound, the violins and mandolin give it that classic Stewart sound fans have come to love. I love to sing this while Ana is listening. My fave lyrics include: "She makes me happy like the summer sun. "
- According to Stewart, this is the one that started it all; it made him realize he could still write a quality song. It’s an extremely mellow, acoustic number with beautiful lyrics. I especially love: "so we fell in love and I toured your heart with my out of tune guitar" Nice!
I also like "Beautiful Morning" and the Album title song, "Time".
