    I like him, but can't put him in my top 100, though.

    Trouble is, I like too many rock artists.

    I've never heard of Harry Nilsson before, but after listening to some of his songs on Youtube, I like him. Thanks.

    If you watched "You Got Mail" with Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan, nearly all the background music is Nilsson. He and John Lennon were tight in the 1970s, especially when Yoko Ono kicked him out.

    Nilsson easily makes my top 50. His version of Badfinger's "Without You" blows away every other version (although I like the rawness of Badfinger's).

    Good artist, but a little strange.

    If you haven't heard them listen to "You're Breaking My Heart"  ...You're breaking my heart, You're tearing it apart, so F**k You... and "I'd
    Rather Be Dead" ...I'd rather be dead, than wet my bed.... a song about not wanting to be a vegtable in a nursing home.

    They are on his "Son of Schmilsson" album.

    Classic everyman singer-songwriter...his music seems to pop up in movies quite a bit

    Nilsson's "Jump Into The Fire" was featured prominently in Goodfellas during the final day/coked up/driving around montage.  Killer bass line.

    Then, of course, there's "Everybody's Talkin" from Midnight Cowboy and "One" (the loneliest number) memorably covered by Aimee Mann for Magnolia.

    He also did that concept album "The Point" about Oblio, the only round headed person in Pointed Village, where everything was required by law to have a point. They made an animated film of it.

    He said he got the idea while on acid.

    Three Dog Night's version was pretty good.

    I like the song as I posted above. He does a great job in singing it with emotion. I admit, however, that I do like sappy songs, ballads, power ballads, etc. Eh, sue me. LOL.

    You should listen to Badfinger's original version.
