ciara said...

Tink said...

I was 4 or 5 that year, but I know them all! some real classics there!
Thanks for visiting my Tink TT. You're right about the tatoo: not yet! I've been talking and thinking about one for years. :-)

Special K ~Toni said...

Same year I was born! Great list! Happy T13!

Damozel said...

I remember that year so very well and I can---and DO---sing several of those songs at the drop of a hat. My favorite from the list is "Angie", I think. That year, I played it over and over and over and over till my parents screamed for mercy.

Head Gaggler said...

Those are some really good songs! I love Wings.

Jenny McB said...

I was thirteen and singing along with most of these songs. Gee, it really does feel like just a short time ago, you must be very, very young! LOL, thanks for stopping by.

jenn said...

I know some of the songs, but was only 1 in 1973.
Hapyy TT!

Babystepper said...

I wasn't born for another 6 years, so I'm gonna classify these as oldies. =)

Xakara said...

1973 was an absotively, posilutely, fantabulous year.

And I say that without any personal bias at all. Mostly. Sorta. Okay not really, I'm completely biased in favor of it but that doesn't take from what a great year it was. *wink*

Happy TT

Great list! I know them all!

Deb - Mom of 3 Girls said...

Oh yes, I know most of those even though I was only 2 years old when most of them came out, LOL.

I noticed that this is your 13th T13 post - spooky! :)

My Twenty Cents Keeps Moving said...

Ooh I know those, but I was only 4 in 73 LOL!

Hey that's the year I was born too.
No wonder I love all of these songs
Your So Vain is one of my all time Favorites and I looove Angie

Thanks, Maribeth

I own every single song on your list in one form or another, mostly in LP and CD format. I might have one or 2 from MP3. 73 was a good year.

The Gal Herself said...

I can sing all these songs. (But don't worry, I'll spare you that!) Which of course means I'm old. Oh well, thank you for the trip down memory lane. It was fun.

Believer in Balance said...

What a great year for music! I love a lot of those songs, even though I was only 3 when they came out. I still think You're So Vain is about Warren Beatty and I absolutely love Midnight Train to Georgia!

ellen b said...

Love your TT. You are such a young thing. I was touring England with a christian rock band the year you were born....

UKZoe said...

Oooh that's a good idea for a list. I'm only 2 years older than you. It would be interesting to see if there is much difference in the musical styles if I did this.

Malcolm: said...

It's hard to stop at just 13 isn't it? I have quite a few of these songs in my collection. Two of my favorites on your list are "Brother Louie" and "Half-Breed". I remember when Cher used to sing that on the "Sonny and Cher" show when I was a little kid.

Lori said...

Thanks for bringing back memories. I love 70's music STILL!!Of course, Im a bit older than you...I was born in 66:) Happy TT and thanks for stopping by.

Robin said...

There are some great songs in there. It's amazing how many of them are still popular today, and frightening how many of them I know by heart.

pussreboots said...

You and I are the same age. Personally I think most of the songs from the year we were born are ghastly.

Thanks for stopping by my TT.

AnGlOpHiLe FoOtBaLl FaNaTiC said...

I remember some of these. And, several tie in perfectly with the fact that Tuesday was One Hit Wonder day.

Christine said...

You know you are younger than me! I'm '72!!

But I remember most of these songs.
Great list.

Happy TT!

Christine said...

You know, you are younger than me! I'm '72 (35)!!

I remember most of these. Great list!!

Happy TT!!

Minkydo said...

That was a good year for music :) Happy TT.

Nicole said...

Another fun idea for a TT! I might have to try this one, too.

No Nonsense Girl said...

This is making me feel young, I don't know many of them and I'm not "that" young!!!!

Thanks for stopping by, happy TT!!!

Nicholas said...

I remember all of those!
