1. album 'Every Picture Tells a Story' released in 1971

"Maggie May" expresses the ambivalence and contradictory emotions of a boy involved in a relationship with an older woman and was written from Stewart's own experience.

In the January 2007 issue of Q magazine, Stewart recalled: "Maggie May was more or less a true story, about the first woman I had sex with, at the 1961 Beaulieu Jazz Festival."
The woman's name was not "Maggie May"; Stewart has stated that the name was taken from "an old Liverpudlian song about a prostitute."

The song was Stewart's first substantial hit as a solo performer and launched his solo career.

2. I love that song.

It came out in my sophomore year of college. I danced to it a lot!

4. I'm not a big Rod Stewart fan. But "Maggie May" remains one of my favorites.

Drank a lot of beer, did a lot of sweaty college-era dancing to it. Also began my love affair with mandolins.
