Very true starofwonder! I read that John, Harry, Keith Moon, Elton John, Mick Jagger, Keith Richards and Ringo got ejected from quite a few bars around the L.A. area during John's year and a half "lost weekend" binge. Take care.

Coconut - Harry Nilsson

I got in trouble for playing that record. My brother said it was just about all he and his buddy could find on the radio when they went to Maryland and he never wanted to hear it again. So I played it every chance I got.  ;)

Harry Nilsson..." One "


From Wikipedia:

Nilsson wrote the song after calling someone and getting a busy signal. He stayed on the line listening to the "beep,beep,beep,beep..." tone, writing the song. The busy signal became the opening notes of the song.

Great videos Hello Goodbye! Like yourself, I'm also a very big THREE DOG NIGHT fan! Danny Hutton is a very good friend of mine whom I met through Brian Wilson in the 1980's. Keep those videos coming! Take care.

Hi Hello Goodbye! I love this video! HARRY NILSSON was very talented as a songwriter and a performer. No wonder John Lennon considered him such a good friend. Take care.
