40 Year Itch : The UK Top 10 August 11, 1973

UK Top 10 August 11, 1973

Gary Glitter has the top UK hit for four straight weeks. Lennie Peters ( who had the misfortune to be blinded in both eyes in two separate incidents) and Dianne Lee had already hit #1 with "Welcome Home" in May but apparently the song had staying power. At #3 is Mungo Jerry with a re-write of the Jacques Dutronc hit "Et moi, Et Moi Et Moi". And yes, I owe Suzy Quatro a write-up. Later this month.

1. Gary Glitter: I'm the Leader of the Gang ( I Am)

2. Peters and Lee "Welcome Home"

3. Mungo Jerry "Alright Alright Alright"

Jacques Dutronc "Et Moi Et Moi Et Moi"

4. Osmonds "Going Home"
5. David Bowie "Life on Mars"
6. Suzy Quatro "48 Crash"

7. Carpenters "Yesterday Once More"
8. Al Martino "Spanish Eyes"

9. Diana Ross "Touch Me in the Morning"
10. Blue Mink "Randy"
