Goodbye yellow brick road

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 8 December 1973. Once more, a decent collection of new entries, with good songs by John Lennon and Lemming, but my pick of the week is one of Elton John's best ballads, Goodbye yellow brick road. Art Rock score: 9/10 (excellent song, one of the 600 best of all time).
