Top of the world

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 27 October 1973. Like last week, there were three new entries that made my MP3 player (Hollies, Steve Miller Band, Carpenters). I have opted for that lovely up-beat Carpenters song Top of the world as my pick of the week. Art Rock score: 8/10 (great song, I'd put it on my MP3 player).
