Song Of The Day: Nilsson – “Jump Into The Fire” (1971)

Let’s take a minute to remember the late, great Harry Nilsson, who would have celebrated his 77th birthday today. He was truly one of a kind, blessed with an amazing 3 and a half-octave vocal range, a gift for writing an array of songwriting styles, a bizarre and twisted sense of humor, and a penchant for wild drunken binges. His music could play it straight — he wrote the song “One” for Three Dog Night — he could go left field, as with his bizarre hit “Coconut”, or he could go completely off the wall like in his song ‘You’re Breaking My Heart”. This amazing song Rocks like crazy, featuring a fantastic drum track by Jim Gordon and an unbelievable bass line by Herbie Flowers.
