1978 Rod Stewart – Blondes Have More Fun

Blondes Have More Fun is Rod Stewart‘s ninth album, released in November 1978. As was the popular musical trend at the time, it is Stewart’s foray into disco music, which although commercially successful, was critically divisive. The lead single “Da Ya Think I’m Sexy” became one of Stewart’s biggest hits, peaking at No.1 in both the UK and US. The album has sold more than 14 million copies worldwide.
