"Rosalie" is a rock song by American singer Bob Seger, released on his Back In '72 album in 1973. The song has been covered by Andy Taylor in concert.

About the song[]

Bob Seger wrote the song in tribute to Rosalie Trombley, the program director of CKLW-AM in Windsor, Ontario, which was one of North America's leading Top 40 radio stations of the 1960s and '70s.

The song was made more famous by the Irish rock band Thin Lizzy, who originally recorded it for their 1975 album Fighting; another recording included on their live album Live and Dangerous in 1978 became a hit single in the UK in the same year.

Andy Taylor covered the song in concert during 1987, performing with a band line-up that included former Missing Persons' bass player Patrick O'Hearn.

She's quite the mediator

A smoother operator you will never see

She'll see you later

And no one dares disobey her openly

She knows music, I know music too you see

She's got the power, the teen queen Rosalie

Rosalie, Rosalie

She's got the plastic

Comes from all the corner's corners of the world

So fantastic

She's everybody's favorite little record girl

She knows music, I know music too you see

She's got the power, she's got the tower

Rosalie, Rosalie

From Chattanooga, to good old Bogalusa

You can hear them fine

She makes her choices

And then you best be smilin' when it's choosin' time
