Keeping with the Valentine’s day theme, I spent most of my weekend in the house listening to hours upon hours of old Rod Stewart records. I’m not talking about “Have I told you Lately….how much that song sucks,” but albums like “Gasoline Alley;” “Atlantic Crossing” and “Tonight I’m Yours” with the danced-out- new wave song “Young Turks” (also known as Young Hearts).
Young Turks was released in 1982 and peaked at #5 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. It was ranked #11 on the UK Singles and #3 in Australia. The term Young Turk is English slang for “rebellious teenager” or “someone the Lady might date if given the chance.”
