*Despite the fact that Nilsson's smash-hit success with this song makes it almost instantly identifiable with him, he didn't write it -- his 1971 recording was a cover of a song written and recorded by Badfinger.
Ever wonder why you didn't hear much more out of him after the early 70s? He ruptured a vocal chord while recording the John Lennon-produced album "Pussycats" in 1974, which cost him his famous upper-register vocal range. He only partially recovered, recording his last vocal tracks shortly before his death in 1994.
