"If you look at the lyrics, it was a story of a guy meeting a chick in a club. If you listen to the lyrics - 'She sits alone, waiting for suggestions, he's so nervous...' - it's the feelings of what was going on in a dance club. The guy sees a chick he digs, she's nervous and he's nervous and she's alone and doesn't know what's going on, then they end up at his place having sex, and then she's gone." - Carmine Appice (co-writer)
"I think it's one of those songs that everyone can remember what they were doing in that particular year. It was one of the 10 songs that summed up that whole dance/disco period. And that's what music's about surely, to bring back memories." - Rod Stewart
"I used to be embarrassed to sing 'Da Ya Think I'm Sexy,' but people love it. So it's in the show." - Rod Stewart
