Last Thursday, I listed the Top 10 songs in the country on 3/17/1973. Thirty-Eight years ago today (3/24/1973), there were a few changes from the prior week. The O’Jays Love Train jumped from #3 to #1, bumping “Killing Me Softly With His Song” . There were only 2 new songs in the Top 10:
- Break Up to Make Up - Stylistics (#9)
- Ain’t No Woman (Like The One I Got) – Four Tops (#10)
Dropping out of the Top 10: Could It Be I'm Falling In Love - Spinners (#14) and Daddy's Home - Jermaine Jackson (#18).
Notable debuts this week?
Only 8 songs made their debut, and the highest open was just #83. Top debut was “Playground In My Mind” by Clint Holmes, which made it to #2. “Pillow Talk” by Sylia opened at #98, on its way to #2. My favorite debut this week (in 1973) was “Let’s Pretend” by The Raspberries (which opened at 86 and peaked at #35).
