Merry Christmas everybody

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 22 December 1973. Two songs among the newcomers have made it to our car MP3 USB stick, The Three Degrees' Dirty old man and the unavoidable choice for today given the time of year: that perennial seasonal classic Merry Christmas everybody by Slade. Art Rock score: 8/10 (great song, I'd put it on my MP3 player).
