Sailing is his biggest seller. No.1 in 1975 and top 10 again in 1976.
That song is one of my mum's favourite songs

Maggie May is overplayed these days on the oldies stations.
Beautiful use of a Mandolin though....

No need for the extra letters, it is 'Goldsboro', the 'ughs' are in your head only

but the song is a story. It's not Rod literally asking 'Do ya think I'm sexy?' - it's about a guy and girl meeting and spending the night together.
Its actually a pretty good disco number, but the irony got lost! Love Baby Jane the best!

Growing up, this was all I knew of Rod and it just painted him as a massive untalented cheesemeister! It came as quite a shock that people considered him a serious musician!
