Samba pa ti

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 17 November 1973. Among the new entries we find a good song by (Bob Marley and) the Wailers, but also Santana's Samba pa ti, one of my all-time favourite songs, which ranked at #15 in my ongoing countdown of the most beautiful pop and rock songs. Art Rock score: 10/10 (brilliant masterpiece, one of 200 best songs of all time).
