Today's Upper is a short clip from a movie. It is in our top-10 list of the funniest movie clips. The “punch line” is wonderful.

This Week with the Chicowitz

Rock On, Rod Stewart!

Unlike Jimmy Buffett’s and Neil Diamond’s shows, Rod Stewart’s show was much... looser. Though I am certain that there was a set list of songs to perform, and many of the songs were carefully choreographed, Rod often deviated from the “script” and played it by ear. He threw balloons and kicked soccer balls into the charged audience. Many times the audience sang along.

This video comes directly from his show in Atlanta. The video quality is pretty punk. But it’ll give you a feel for the flavor of the concert. It was loose, happy, lively, and fun.

What is especially remarkable is that, even at age 70, he was bouncing around the stage, singing, dancing, and having a ball like a guy half his age! Early in the show, he shed his jacket and tie. Before he was done, he had gone through three costumes. His mood was infectious. Everyone had a great time. He put on a heck of a show. But by the time the show was over, you could tell he was exhausted!
