Harry Nilsson - Jump Into the Fire/Coconut/Without You/Everybody's Talking

5 posts in this topic

Jump In to the Fire is one of my favorite all-time Harry Nilsson cuts. It was released as a single around 1970 and you can listen to it here.

For those of you who don't know him, "Harry Edward Nilsson III (June 15, 1941 – January 15, 1994) was an American songwriter, singer, pianist and guitarist, and was most popular during the 1960s and 1970s. For most of his recordings, he did not use his first name, and was credited only as Nilsson. Despite some spectacular successes, including two Grammy Awards, Nilsson's tendency to make broad stylistic jumps from one record to the next and his iconoclastic decisions kept him from capitalizing on those successes. His most well-known recordings are "Without You" (Ham/Evans), "Everybody's Talkin'" (Neil) (theme from the movie "Midnight Cowboy") & "Coconut" (Nilsson). - Wikipedia." He also was Lennon and McCartney's favorite artist.

I've picked four music videos after the jump which highlight some of his better known compositions. Enjoy.

Without You - this was a hit when it was released in the 70s. I think it was also used in Brokeback Mt.
