Different songs of course, but I remember seeing Rod Stewart in a tv interview once and said he wrote the song about a fling with one of his early (young) girlfriends.
I needed comfort of love just to get me some piece of mind.. wo-oh

Sorry, I can't help you there, the only thing I know about the song datewise, is that it hit #1 in October 1971 on both sides of the Atlantic. Maybe some Googling will provide an answer for you?
