* GenreAdultery: He's nearly always been rooted in pop-rock, but he tried many different sounds over the years. A greatest hits album of his is a slight GenreRoulette.

* CoveredUp: "Downtown Train", first released by Music/TomWaits was a top 5 US hit for Stewart in 1989. There's also "Sailing" and "I Don't Want To Talk About It" from the previous decade.

Added DiffLines:

* CoverVersion: Most of his albums have at least one or two covers on them. Some have more covers than originals, including some of his most widely loved albums (for instance, five of the eight tracks on ''Every Picture Tells a Story'' are covers: "Seems Like a Long Time" by Ted Anderson, which Stewart found on an album by Brewer & Shipley; "That's All Right" by Arthur Crudup, probably best known in Music/ElvisPresley's version; "Tomorrow Is a Long Time" by Music/BobDylan; "(I Know) I'm Losing You" by Music/TheTemptations; "Reason to Believe" by Tim Hardin).

He had a considerably longer and more varied career than many people probably realize. Prior his solo success, Stewart fronted the Jeff Beck Group and Music/{{Faces}}.

* ForeverYoungSong: "Forever Young"

to:

* EveryoneLovesBlondes: Rod is famous for this. He named one of his albums basically after the trope.
* ForeverYoungSong: "Forever Young"Young".
* GenreAdultery: He's nearly always been rooted in pop-rock, but he tried many different sounds over the years. A greatest hits album of his is a slight GenreRoulette.


Added DiffLines:

* HarshVocals: The vocal style he's most known for. In actuality, though he sometimes had this style on his more uptempo or electric numbers (ie. "Hot Legs") his voice simply has rasp, even on songs the vocals couldn't be considered harsh.


Added DiffLines:

** There was also one that he played the harmonica on Millie Small's 1964 hit "My Boy Lollipop". This one remains uncertain.
* VocalEvolution: Surprisingly averted, especially with his [[HarshVocals known style of singing]]. He's lost some range, but on certain recordings in later years he still sounds just like he did in the early 70s.

Added DiffLines:

* {{Sampling}}: The synthesised "string" melody in "Da Ya Think I'm Sexy" is borrowed from Bobby Womack's 1975 song "(If You Want My Love) Put Something Down on It".

English singer-songwriter Rod Stewart is probably most famous - or infamous - for his sexually-charged songs, such as "Tonight's the Night", which discusses seduction of a virgin (including an almost explicit description of him demanding she let him get inside her); "Maggie May", about a teenage boy who is tired of shacking up with his much older lover; and "Young Turks", about a boy and girl who decide to run off together when their parents won't let them be together any more (probably because he got her pregnant).
