Song of the Day: Faces - Stay with Me

Remember when Rod Stewart was cool?  Yeah, I don't either.  But put on any Faces album, particularly A Nod Is as Good as a Wink to a Blind Horse, and you'll realize that once upon a time, before he had to ask if you thought he was sexy, he was a badass. This is probably the best-known Faces song, and for good reason - it's one of their best songs.  You can hear the Stones (this was released during their epic Beggars-to-Exile run and includes guitar by Ron Wood, who later joined the Stones), the drunken revelry of the Replacements and a how-to manual for the Black Crowes here.  Excellent, underrated stuff, probably somewhat tarnished to many by Rod Stewart's latter day transgressions.
