List of Rod Stewart songs, ranked from best to worst by the Ranker community. Rod Stewart has been cranking out standards albums for the adult contemporary market for so long it's easy to forget he started out as one of the best R&B/Rock n Roll vocalists of his generation. On those first five albums nobody took songwriter's songs and gave them an impassioned reading like Stewart. He was pretty good at penning his own back them too. Toward the end of the '70s he moved over to the pop market where he stayed for the rest of his career with some enjoyable hits. But that first half-decade of his career is still a marvel.

This list gathers early classics like "Maggie May" and "Gasoline Alley" as well as latter day pop hits like "Passion" and "Downbound Train." If there's a Stewart song interpretation you think is missing or that we're giving his pop hits short shrift add songs of change the order as you please. Simply click the "Rerank List" button and you can put the songs in whatever order you like.
