1973.
I remember it well.
It was my senior year in high school.

Funny, how I never gave it much thought that once we all walked out of that school gymnasium after the graduation ceremony, that I would be losing touch with most of my high school friends.
If I had to be honest, and you know it kills me to be truthful (just kidding...or am I), there's only one person from over 1200 students in my high school that I am in touch with.
And that's only through social media.
Is that normal?
Do you keep in touch with any of your high school friends?

Well, anyway, 1973 was a great year for music, as were most years in the 70s, not taking into account those disco years toward the end of the decade.
Why couldn't that fad have waited until the 80s decade, so as not to interfere with an otherwise rockin' 70s decade?
Well, the rock world worked around it anyway.

There was so much good music that came out of 1973, and in no particular order, here are my 10 favs from my graduation year.
