Steve Harley & Cockney Rebel

No songs from the album Machinehead from deep purple

Smoke on the water? Highway star? Lazy?

"Smoke On the Water" counts as 1973 (the year it was a hit) not 1972, it is listed as the 17th song of that year. "Lazy" was not a hit anywhere (not in our lists anyway) and "Highway Star" was nowhere near a big enough hit to make the top 100 of 1972.

Who sang this song?

The original version was by America and was a minor hit in 1973.

The version you are thinking of was by Captain & Tennille and was: Canada RPM 1 for 1 week - Jan 1977, Record World 2 - 1976, US Billboard 4 - Sep 1976 (19 weeks), US Gold (certified by RIAA in Dec 1976), Canada 5 - Oct 1976 (10 weeks), France 10 - Jan 1977 (1 week), US CashBox 30 of 1976, US Radio 30 of 1976 (peak 4 10 weeks), WABC NY 54 of 1976

If you had looked in the index or used the search box on the top right you would have found it.

Keep on trucking by Eddie Kendricks

I don't see this one on the list and I know it hit #1 in the US. What gives?

Eddie Kendricks song "Keep On Truckin'" obtained the following entries: US Billboard 1 - Aug 1973 (19 weeks), Record World 1 - 1973, US Radio 4 of 1973 (peak 1 13 weeks), France 10 - Feb 1974 (1 week), UK 18 - Nov 1973 (14 weeks), WABC NY 36 of 1973, US CashBox 49 of 1973, DDD 73 of 1973

Contrast this with the song at position 100, which was a hit in more countries. We think that "Keep On Truckin'" was the 103rd biggest worldwide hit of 1973, and we only list the top 100.
