Rod Stewart qualified for Canadian Content on 4 songs:
'Broken Arrow' was written by Robbie Robertson
'Rhythm of My Heart' and 'This' were written by Marc Jordan/John Capek
'My Town' being a Glass Tiger song

At the time of release, 'All For Love' didn't qualify for CANCON, but since the rules have been amended, the song would now qualify as it was co-written by Bryan Adams


♦ The vocals on the N-Trance version of 'Da Ya Think I'm Sexy' were only in sample form from Rod's original 1978 hit.  He was given full credit, and the song qualifies as a bona fide hit in his discography

I would have to say "Rhythm of My Heart" by far!  That song came out when I was in early grammar school.  Every time I hear the words I imagine John Paul Jones on the Bonhommme Richard.

I'm not a big Stewart fan, but yeah I like "Rhythm of My Heart" and "The Motown Song" too (that one had a cool Simpsonslike animated video), they still sounded kinda 80s and catchy.

Even though, like I said I'm not much into him beyond a few songs, I do have some nostalgia for those songs now. He was one of the veteran "AC pop" singers in the '90s (along with, say Sting and Bryan Adams) that managed to be current with softer stuff, and I do kinda miss that.

Yeah, I enjoy Rod's 70's and 80s stuff and that first album from early 1990s (with Rhythm of My Heart and Downtown Train).  Never got into the 90s or 00s stuff.  He sounds like "Grover" from Sesame Street to me.

Here's some interesting trivia for you.  'Downtown Train' was written and first recorded by Tom Waits in 1985.  Patty Smyth then did a cover two years later and became the first to hit with it, charting at US #95 in 1987

Rod's version features Jeff Beck on slide guitar, and Beck also appears in the video.  Rod stewart was the vocalist for The Jeff Beck Group in the late 60s

The only 90's Rod Stewart songs I like are "Rhythm Of My Heart" and "Downtown Train".

Haha, yeah I knew it was a Tom Waits cover. But, I didn't know Patty did a version as well.

I'm not really a fan of his, but I didn't mind listening to his cover of "So Far Away", and "If We Fall In Love Tonight," which probably hit the Adult Contemporary charts. I was an avid listener of Casey Kasem's American Top 20 countdown in '96 and I remember those two songs very well.
