Easy livin'

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 8 September 1973. Last week, the new entries were mediocre or worse, this week I had to pick between two of my all-time favourite songs. In the end, as much as I love the Stones' ballad Angie, I love Uriah Heep's Easy livin' even more. Art Rock score: 10/10 (one of 200 best songs of all time).
