Time Capsule – 1973

In 1973, the UK joined the European Union, Richard Nixon was the President of the United States and announced and announced he was dialing down his offensive against North Korea, all this in the midst of the Watergate scandal. Ferdinand Marcos of the Philippines declared himself President for Life, Northern Ireland held the referendum and voted to stay in the United Kingdom. Scary, right? Not exactly the same but the news revolving around the same issues. History repeating.  

In pop culture, the movies The Sting and The Exorcist premiered. The second one of those still haunts me to this day. And Elvis Presley´s concert, ´Aloha from Hawaii´ is watched on TV by more people than the moon landing,

In music, Lou Reed was bitten in his butt by a fan, Mike Oldfield,s ´Tubular Bells´is released on Virgin, Bowie retires Ziggy Stardust on stage, and Queen released their debut album.
Here are 5 tracks to remember the tumultuous year by:

Carly Simon – You’re So Vain

Probably one of the pop songs people have speculated most about throughout the years. The classic song is an instantly recognizable anthem, a favourite of many and timeless. In 2015, Carly Simon finally admitted the second verse was about Warren Beatty.

Sly & The Family Stone – If You Want Me To Stay

George Harrison-Give Me Love (Give Me Peace On Earth)
