This Celtic Rock romp is an ode to Rod's father, Robert Stewart, who was unfailingly supportive when he started his career. "Every time I got rejected, he would always be there for me," Rod told The Daily Telegraph. "Although my big brother told me it wasn't quite as easy as that, behind my back he was saying, 'I'm a bit worried about wee Roddie, is he gonna be all right?'" (laughs)
Rod penned this with keyboardist and songwriter Kevin Savigar, who joined the Scottish star's touring and recording band in 1978. Their previous collaborations include "Forever Young" and "Tonight I'm Yours."
Rod's dad passed away in 1990. "I've got loads of great memories of my parents," he told The Sun, "and that song just came to me as I was thinking how great my dad was."
George Harrison's 1971 song "Bangla Desh" was the first major charity single. It was part of a concert held to bring relief to the people of Bangladesh, who were fighting for independence and suffering from a famine.
