MP3 of the Day: Harry Nilsson

Categories: Music

harry-nilsson.jpgWhat other local radio station is gonna play Harry Nilsson besides the intrepidly eclectic KUSF? This morning I heard this pretty excellent oldie, "Jump Into the Fire," a song that has a rumblin'-down-the-road bassline; Nilsson's raspy, repeated promise that "We can make each other happy"; and good time boogie guitars guaranteed to lift your spirits even higher than Nilsson's fevered yowl (plus a drum solo like you're not gonna hear on today's commercial radio). It's the sweet stuff like this that hopefully gets folks off their asses to donate to the non-commerical station during its quiet drive. Check out the awesome jam for yourself here, in tribute to a songwriter once hailed by the Beatles for good reason. -- Jennifer Maerz
