    Album: Foot Loose & Fancy Free (Warner Bros.)

    The second single from Rod Stewart‘s Foot Loose & Fancy Free album, “Hot Legs” hit Number 28 on the Billboard Hot 100 and Number Five in the U.K.

    Stewart notes that he wanted a crunchy, upbeat track to offset the ballads that were also part of the album — “This is what rock-and-roll is all about for me: raw, with plenty of fighting guitars and a steady backbeat courtesy of (drummer) Carmine Appice — known for his short arms and long pockets.”

    Foot Loose & Fancy Free was one of Stewart’s most successful albums, reaching Number Two on the Billboard 200 and selling more than three million copies — his top seller up to that point.

    The album reached Number Three in the U.K.
