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 20 October 1973. Three new entries that made my MP3 player (Stones, Boudewijn de Groot, Redbone). I like Sympathy for the devil best, but in this case I have opted for a (then) new song rather than a re-release, the Redbone hit Wovoka. Art Rock score: 8/10 (great song, I'd put it on my MP3 player).
