“Do Ya Think I’m Sexy” by Rod Stewart

Most people think of this song as another novelty sex boast in the vein of “I’m Too Sexy” or “Sexy And I Know It”…the perfect soundtrack to a bad male strip show, basically. The thing is, most of these people only actually ever listened to the song’s chorus. It’s actually a story song, relating a touching narrative about an awkward hookup between two extremely shy people, and the famous chorus is merely Stewart giving voice to their unspoken thoughts. This is actually one of the most intelligent songs of the disco era, and deserves to be respected along with such titles as “Stayin’ Alive” and “I Will Survive” as being among the few disco hits to have actually held up with time.

Verdict: Good
