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 29 September 1973. Three new entries that week are featured on our car's USB MP3 stick. In the end I picked the internationally least known one, over the songs by the Sweet and Suzi Quatro. The Cats from the Dutch village of Volendam scored another top10 hit with Maribaja, one of their finest efforts. Art Rock score: 8/10 (great song, I'd put it on my MP3 player).
