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!
