Before Stand By Me had to get all dour and repurposed train tracks as one of the best places to find a dead body, Americans associated train tracks with one thing and one thing only - hot, sexy, lady legs. That's all thanks to "Hot Legs," this 1977 video by Rod Stewart. In short, Stewart and crew look like flamboyant hobos who come across a woman who is only legs. I'm not figuratively saying she has long legs, for most of the song I actually thought she had no upper half. Which I guess is the point Rod Stewart is pushing - who the hell cares what this girl looks like, or if she even has a face at all, she's got hot legs! The song itself is a winner, sounding like it's straight off a BBQ restaurant's soundtrack, and it even features the line, "Bring your mother, too!" Look, I know it's the 70s and you're Rod Stewart, but I don't think that leggy woman wants to involve her parents. Then again maybe she does, she is laying on train tracks after all.
