Musical Monday ~ One Hit Wonders 1973


Welcome to Musical Monday! Music has been known to affect our emotions. Listening to music can make us happy or sad, relaxed or motivated, put us to sleep or make us want to dance. Music absolutely plucks at our heartstrings bringing to the surface a multitude of emotions.

Someone once described music to me as a time machine. When we listen it often transports us back to a place in time. A certain song can bring back feelings of someone we loved, our wedding day, someone who died, or any of the many important times in our lives.

Music has always been a big part of my life. When I am sad listening to a sad song often allows me to release that sadness. Happy songs tend to take away my sadness. It has helped motivate me to do housework. Yep, just crank up the radio or a music television station and I’m good to go. Warning: Be careful not to turn your music up too loud though. I have actually blown out the speakers in a television once doing this.

I have been known to start singing in a store when a song that I like comes on, I tend to sing along with songs while I am driving, and it isn’t unusual to see me moving to the music in my computer chair as I sit and listen to music.

This week I am posting One Hit Wonders of 1973….Please leave a song title that is your favorite One Hit Wonder of 1973 in the comments below. You may see your song posted in upcoming blog posts.

  1. Loved this post! I remember some of these as having been on the radio in ’72, but the only song on the list I don’t recall at all is “Daisy a Day,” which I actually heard of for the very first time only yesterday–and it wasn’t the original. The CBS Sunday Morning show did a story about an elderly man in Wisconsin who sings it to his late wife every day as he visits the park bench dedicated to her memory. I was thinking it was a much older song–no idea it was from ’73–so I’ve learned something today!

    Thanks for the ride in this wonderful time machine!

  2. This was fun. It’s long since I heard all these. Interesting how these songs span the spectrum of music popular at the time. “Last Song” was the one that truly gave me pause when I heard it.

  3. My best friend and I used to get into my mom’s records. One of our favorites was Tony Orlando and Dawn. How about Tie A Yellow Ribbon Round The Old Oak Tree? Thanks for the awesome post!!
