Who Is Harry Nilsson (And Why Is Everybody Talkin' About Him)?

"Wow." "Holy Shit." "Fuck."

These are some of the phrases used after watching the above referenced documentary last night on Netflix. 

Being a music nerd I've known the name Harry Nilsson for as long as I can remember. I knew the Lennon/Beatles connection. I've owned a 'Best Of' CD for years that I am sadly willing to admit I'd never actually listened to. No idea where or when I got it. Just one of those things you acquire with no recollection of how.

I am officially blown away and in love with a whole catalog of music I've somehow managed to ignore for far too long. This is like when I first heard Big Star, or watched 'The Wire' for the first time. It's like discovering a closet full of old Christmas presents from your youth you never opened. It's my own little secret that I want to tell the entire world about. Loudly.  

I'm fucking smitten.
