Let's spend the night together

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 15 September 1973. A number of good MP3 player worthy songs to choose from, including Barry White and Jimmy Helms, but my pick of the week is Bowie's excellent cover of a famous Stones song - not released as a single in the UK, but a hit in Holland. Art Rock score: 8/10 (great song, I would put it on my MP3 player).
