MID-WEEK MUSIC MOMENT: ROD STEWART


{ "All you did was wreck my bed, and in the morning kick me in the head" }

On Monday night I fulfilled a lifelong dream I never knew I had. I got to see Rod Stewart perform at Madison Square Garden—from the seventh row. Joined by Tully, Jess and Sue, we sipped our $10 Stellas from cups with straws and danced like our moms to "Forever Young," "Hot Legs" and "The First Cut Is The Deepest."

The guy is an icon, and at 68 years old, you can't help but admire how he moves. He was doing jumping jacks, shaking his hips and kicking soccer balls into the audience all night. Not to mention, singing with his still amazing, signature raspy voice for hours.

I felt it was only fitting to have one of my favorite Rod songs as this week's MWMM—so here's "Maggie May." (Check out a little snippet of him singing it live on my Instagram.) 


Not surprisingly, the concert ended with "Do Ya Think I'm Sexy?" and about a million balloons dropping from the ceiling of MSG and bouncing around the audience.
