Intros quiz – 1973 edition

Today we’ll start a new theme on the Intros Quizzes: the anniversary series. All 20 songs come from the same year, in this case (as the attentive reader may have guessed) 1973 “” 35 years ago. The next one will focus on 1978, then 1983 etc.

All songs here were hits in 1973. Some were released in 1972 but became hits in 1973; a few were released in 1973 and became hits in 1974 (mostly in Europe, which used to lag behind the US and UK).

I’ll post the answers into the comments by the weekend.

    Thanks for the kind words, Mr Tanner. I had the Steinman album you posted and loved it at the time (despite the dodgy cover). Sadly Rapidshare doesn’t work for me, but good luck with your blog.fusion 45, that drum post was great. I can’t comment on your page, it seems, but I was gong to say that another great drumming performance is that on Lennon’s “Instant Karma”. Great collection of acoustic love songs – what’s that, you don’t do singers with guitars???
