Hot 100 Chart 1973-03-24

On 3/31/1973 (38 years ago) the Top 10 songs in the USA were:
  1. Killing Me Softly With His Song - Roberta Flack. This would be the last week at #1 for KMSWHS, as it rebounded from #2 the previous week. It spent 5 weeks total in the top spot.
  2. Theme From '2001' (Also Sprach Zarathustra) – Deodato. As noted previously, this is a favorite of mine. It would peak at #2…
  3. Neither One Of Us (Wants To Be The First To Say Goodbye) - Gladys Knight & The Pips
  4. Love Train - O'Jays. Coming down from #1…
  5. Ain’t No Woman Like The One I’ve Got – Four Tops. Big mover, up from 10.
  6. Break Up To Make Up - Stylistics
  7. Last Song - Edward Bear
  8. Danny's Song - Anne Murray
  9. Sing - Carpenters (debut in Top 10, up from 11)
  10. The Night The Lights Went Out In Georgia – Vicki Lawrence (debut in Top 10, up from 16)
 Dropping out of the Top 10: Dueling Banjos, and Cover Of The Rolling Stone.
Notable debuts on the Hot 100: The Right Thing To Do – Carly Simon (#70), Thinking Of You – Loggins and; Messina (#79), Give It To Me – J. Geils (#98) and Will It Go Round In Circles – Billy Preston (#99)

The photo above is another oldie, one of the oldests.  Pretty sure this was taken in the summer of 1975.  In Beckley WV.
