CHART ENTRY ON THIS DAY IN 1973

Paulsimonkodachrome

“Kodachrome” is named after the Kodak 35mm film of the same name. The
song debuted on the Billboard Hot 100 chart and five weeks later, moved to
#9, peaking at #2. “Kodachrome” was not released as a single in Britain 
because the BBC would not play the trademarked name.
