10:34 pm - Who Is Harry Nilsson (And Why Is Everybody Talkin’ About Him)?  
Last Night I watched Who Is Harry Nilsson (And Why Is Everybody Talkin’ About Him)?, a behind the music type documentary about Nilsson which is currently available as a free online preview. Today, thanks to the movie, I've been listening to Nilsson all day. It's easy to forget at this remove how talented he was both as a singer and a songwriter. The movie is well worth the time. There are even a couple of Nicky Hopkins sightings in some footage taken during the Nilsson Schmilsson sessions.

One of my favorites, "The Lottery Song," with Hopkins on piano.

Yeah, everything he did from Pandemonium Sideshow through Son of Schmillson is pretty great.

I've been listening to Nilsson Sings Newman a lot lately.
