China grove

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 13 October 1973. A clear pick this time, one track stands out head and shoulders above the rest for me: the Doobie Brothers' masterpiece China grove. Art Rock score: 9/10 (excellent song, one of the 600 best of all time).
