“Harry Nilsson – Everybody’s Talkin’ (1969)”

Harry Edward Nilsson III (June 15, 1941 – January 15, 1994[2]), usually credited as Nilsson, was an American singer-songwriter who achieved the peak of his commercial success in the early 1970s. He is known for the hit singles “Everybody’s Talkin'” (1969), “Without You” (1971), and “Coconut” (1972). Nilsson also wrote the song “One,” made famous by the rock band Three Dog Night. He was one of the few major pop-rock recording artists of his era to achieve significant commercial success without ever performing major public concerts or undertaking regular tours.

He received Grammy Awards for two of his recordings; Best Contemporary Vocal Performance, Male in 1970 for “Everybody’s Talkin'”, a prominent song in the Academy Award-winning movie Midnight Cowboy, and Best Pop Vocal Performance, Male in 1973 for “Without You.” Rolling Stone ranked him as No. 62 on The 100 Greatest Songwriters of All Time.

    Was it just our age back then, or was the music of the day just better than today? I don’t know…

    Innocence is sweet. The world is no longer in a state of innocence.

    No it isn’t. But perhaps it is we who have grown out of our innocence. But I agree, the world seems more harsh by any standards…

    Sweet because innocence lives within that spirituality ( time/age), associates or identifies with gentleness. I say this even if some massive harshness is around. Innocence stays with the comfort. Today, the spirit of things are overwhelmingly harsh affecting all innocence. The way of the world !

    I can agree with your thoughts, “Coffee.” I’m so glad we didn’t live in the days before the Noahic flood…for as the bible says…”all thoughts of man were only given to sin.” What a world that must of been!

    Wel, Steve, we were chosen specifically for these times. I wonder if the generation before the Noahic flood could endure these times. %\

    Well I don’t know. Could we endure the times of the world during the Noahic flood? After all, God spared only 8 people on the entire earth…
