Today we take a look at the music of 1973 another great year. As you know I love most of the songs of the 70’s and 1973 produced a lot of classic songs that didn’t make it to number 1 but not every song can get there. Have a look at this lot and see if they bring back good memories for you.

If you get a minute could you please pop over to my Facebook Page and join us. I plan to build this page this year as I have more time on my hands since retiring.  I am trying to get people to share their favourite 70s music.  As you know we do not all like the same songs and it would be great to hear page members favourite 70s songs.  I hope to see you there soon.

Thanks For Visiting Today. Make sure you come back as I build the site, leave a comment below if there is any singer or group you think I should add to the site.
