I remember this! My sister used to love watching The Muppet show. That show had some great stars on there too. Take care.

In my opinion, all three versions, by BADFINGER, HARRY NILSSON and MARIAH CAREY, are all outstanding!

I'll admit to enjoying a bit of a sing song and I can sing song a little bit in my own inimitable style but I get to that bit in the Nilsson one where it's "I CAN'T LIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIVVVVVVVVVVVVVEEEEEEEE" my voice breaks on that each and every damn time, he's probably the best singer ever, so very emotive with it too...

Hasn't he got 4 octaves which is like half an octave more than Freddie Mercury and Paul McDougal? I'm not proficient in such technical matters, I think I heard that once though...

Would not be surprised at all.

Hi Ollier! How are you? Welcome to the forum. HARRY NILSSON has one hell of a voice. I underestimated Nilsson's vocal ranges for many years until I heard many of his other songs. Doing this, I would soon realize that this man can really sing.

also a big buddy of  John


As I understand actually Ringo and Harry were closer. I don't know if John introduced Harry to Ringo or the other way around. I know Harry, Una, Ringo and Barbara and all of the kids used to hang out..

This is usually the same part where I screech along to the song with wine bottle in hand.

Hello BeatlesForever thanks for the welcome, I'm not really all that up to date on Mr. Nilsson I only have a best of double album but have always meant to get more, alas record shops are all but dead these days and I'm an old fashioned guy, maybe I'll check a couple out at christmas perhaps...

It's certaily up there as one of the great depressive drinking songs didn't Pete Ham write it? Google says he wrote it with Tom Evans, what a tragic history the song has...

In my opinion, the story of BADFINGER has one of the most tragic endings in Rock n' Roll history.
