Saint Tropez (Gitarren bei Nacht)

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 18 August 1973. Of the newcomers of that week I picked the Vicky Leandros hit - one of those campy songs that I disliked at the time, but now find fun to listen to. And I had a bit of crush on Vicky as a teenager.... Art Rock score: 8/10 (great song, I would put it on my MP3 player).
