A model citizen.

"Lost In You (Extended Remix)" - Rod Stewart

Produced by Andy Taylor, Bernard Edwards and Tony Thompson (a mini Power Station reunion), Rod's 15th solo LP, "Out Of Order" hit stores in 1988. It sold over 2 million copies and was considered by many critics to be the return of the "real" Rod Stewart after many of his previous releases didn't live up to their hype. I presume this song was written for Rod's girlfriend of the time, model Kelly Emberg. They had a child the year before. The story is that Stewart didn't want to marry Emberg so she left him in 1990 and filed a 25 million palimony suit on him. Hell hath no fury. The case was settled in 1993 for an "undisclosed amount" (Read: none of our business). Rod quickly married (you guessed it) another supermodel not long after Emberg dumped him. That model was Rachel Hunter. Former Sports Illustrated swimsuit star. Paid 1.8 million to pose for Playboy. Rod said he'd rather have his penis cut off than cheat on her. Proving that stupid things you say will bite you in the can they divorced in 2006. Neat-o: Stewart has been called the greatest white soul singer by James Brown and Elton John. "Lost In You" reached #12 on the Billboard Hot 100. This version is from the pictured UK CD-3 with a running time of 5:37.
