Rod Stewart - "Young Turks" (Tonight I'm Yours, Warner Bros. 1982)
"Billy pierced his ear, drove a pickup like a lunatic."
...and was apparently stalked the whole time by the kids from Fame, if this video is any indication. How coked up must Rod have been when this clip was recorded?
For the record: my third-favorite Rod single, after "The Killing of Georgie (I & II)" and "(I Know) I'm Losing You." Sure, this is trash, but it's lip-smacking. Rod's early '80s were full of this stuff, and much of it's still tasty (cf. "Tonight I'm Yours," "Infatuation" [fatuate me!], "Passion").
