Everybody's Talkin'

"Fred Neil wrote "Everybody's Talkin'" in five minutes at the end of a recording session in 1966 and recorded it immediately in a single take so he could take off and go back home to Miami. It's a great song and an unlikely standard that he probably never thought much of. It made him millions though after it was used in John Schlesinger's Midnight Cowboy (sung by Harry Nilsson) and was subsequently covered by at least a hundred other artists. Fred Neil spent the last 25 years of his life in Florida."
boogie woogie flu has got the original Fred Neil song as well as Harry Nilsson's more well-known rendition and some other nice versions. And a few great bonus tracks!
