Time to chill with some Deep House by Sun Singleton.  You might bring the volume down to a third and go from there.  Gets really luscious around 0:45 and beyond.  Enjoy.     ~z

Note:  You may have to stop the player when finished.

I had to go find this song, because I recently heard a version done by Crosby, Stills and Nash, and their rendition falls flat.  It's slow, somber, almost gloomy.  Apparently Nilsson isn't the original artist, but it's the well known version.  FYI the band Tonic did a nice cover of it for the late 90's movie Clay Pigeons, like it much more than the CSN cover.

Right, Fred Neil wrote that one, Nilsson just provided the pipes.

But Harry Nilsson was also a superb songwriter!

My favorite is "Don't Forget Me," produced by John Lennon, who was a big admirer of Nilsson.  I can't imagine a sadder song.  After the refrains, the string (violin?) notes are slurred into each other, giving the impression that the singer is going insane with grief.

I have never seen a live version of this one.  There are live versions of Neko Case doing the same song, and her version is excellent as well.

up.gif  Thanks Sculpin.  I saw Neko Case fairly early in career, before she really took off.  Pretty sure it was at the Tractor, long time ago, memory is getting fuzzy.

Fair warning, you may just hate what some would consider a cloying song. hurl.gif  But then again, (Think Foster the People) you might just find yourself listening/watching (Oh, that smile) again and again and dancing like this alone in your room!  eek.gif  mum.gif  hairy.gif  up.gif

Kiko Loureiro, the Brazilian phenom, is Megadeth's newest guitarist. In 2020 he put out a solo instrumental album, Source Control, which, for anyone who loves instrumental guitar, is incredible. Here are a couple of my favorites from the album (although I could have picked any number of others):

A fun trivia question:

Which famous musicians first became known as vocalists, and later were recognized as accomplished songwriters?

Not Elvis, he never wrote a song.
Not Bob Dylan, he most likely would not have made it purely as a vocalist.
And not Willie Nelson, he went the other way, making a living as a songwriter before he became known as a performer.

But Harry Nilsson is on that list.  So is Grace Slick, she wrote "Go Ask Alice" after becoming famous for fronting Jefferson Airplane.
