In September of 1973 I turned 15 years old. Now I have a daughter who is 15 and she watched the Video Music Awards with the excitement I might have had over a stadium concert back in the day. Here are some of my favorite songs from 1973 on the late movies. I spent a lot of quarters playing these on the jukebox!

Feelin' Stronger Every Day

Chicago music takes me back.

Rocky Mountain High

John Denver made us all feel good in 1973.

Smoke on the Water

The biggest hit of the year ...and the song that lived forever.

China Grove

From The Doobie Brothers.

We're an American Band

That American band was Grand Funk Railroad by name.

Love Train

This song by the O'Jays reminds me of that one guy who was so good-looking, but years later turned out to be an ass.

Hello It's Me

From Todd Rundgren.

Stuck In The Middle With You

By Stealer's Wheel.

Could It Be I'm Falling In Love

By The Spinners. And yes, I was definitely falling in love.

Living For The City

Stevie Wonder is still awesome!

I just regret that there aren't good videos for all my favorites from 1973!
