Harry Nilsson : The Happy Cynic


I was talking to someone tonight about Harry Nilsson, who've I've recently discovered for myself. We agreed that his music is tinged with happy-cynicism, which is the secret to its appeal. He was bilked for almost all of his life-savings by a close associate around the time of his death, so maybe he wasn't cynical enough?
A pinch of salt on top of happiness is good for rock, though.

Me and My Arrow——Harry Nilsson
