American Top 40 Flashback - Harry Nilsson

Harry Nilsson is probably known by some people more for his drunken and drugged exploits with John Lennon during Lennon's "lost weekend" phase than he is for his music. Which is a shame, because Nilsson was a very entertaining, albeit quirky artist. And he made the great "Nilsson Schmilsson" album, on which this song appeared.

"Without You" doesn't really sound like anything else on the album, but it's one of those rare bits of saturated pop that works from start to finish.

And no, I have no idea what these dancers are doing in this video - auditioning for "The Walking Dead," perhaps?

"Without You," Harry Nilsson, the #1 song this week in 1972.
