Introduction

Maggie May


Maggie May is mentioned on page 7 of A Tourists Guide to Glengarry.

Maggiereason.jpgMaggie May is a song written by Rod Stewart and musician Martin Quittenton. It was also recorded in 1971 by Stewart with his band, "The Faces". It was written from Stewart's personal experiences about a younger man falling in love with an older woman.

In October 1971, Maggie May moved up to number one in the United Kingdom, and instantly reached the top in the U.S. It is a rare achievement to top the UK and U.S singles and simultaneously top the album charts. This notable goal has only been reached by a handful of acts other than Rod Stewart such as, "The Beatles", "Simon and Garfunkle", and most recently, "Beyonce Knowles".

This song launched Stewart as a solo artist. Maggie May re-entered the United Kingdom charts in December 1976, but only reached thirty-one. Although he has sold millions of albums, Maggie May is considerably his best known work.
