Say has anybody seen my sweet Gipsy Rose

June 2013 marked the 40th anniversary of me being interested in the Dutch Top40 as broadcast weekly at that time by Veronica. To celebrate this piece of my youth, I intend to make Saturday Top40 1973 day in this blog for the rest of the year - providing a link to the list of that day 40 years ago and selecting my favourite song of the new entries of that week. Today we feature the list of 1 September 1973. There were five newcomers that week, in quality ranging from yuck to just OK. My pick of the week is Say has anybody seen my sweet Gipsy Rose, by Tony Orlando and Dawn. Art Rock score: 7/10 (OK song, good to hear it on the radio).
