Did anyone see Rod Stewart singing " The Same Old Song " on Strictly Come Dancing? Fantastic version...

He's sung a bunch a old Motown hits on his new album Soulbook.

Yes, I saw him on SCD - we all wondered what is the point of him covering these songs? The originals are unsurpassable, certainly not by an old has been like Rod!

Money ??? Rolling Eyes

Churning out versions of old songs is all he's done for the last few years ?

Obviously for money, but artistically it's a worthless album. Every track I've heard, the original is miles better.
