Song of the day: Rod Stewart- Sailing

Rod-Stewart-Sailing

In 1972, the song Sailing was written by Gavin Sutherland for the Sutherland Bros. Band. It would be recorded in the same year, but it never reached the charts. That changed when Rod Stewart recorded the song in 1975. He hit the number one spot in the UK in September for four weeks. A year later, the song would return to the UK top 10, since the version of Rod Stewart was used as the title song of a TV series (the single picture is from that series). It would be the biggest hit for Rod Stewart in the UK, since it would be sold over a million times. Though he also was popular in the US, the song would stay number 58 there. Enjoy
