The brilliant but dangerous Phil Spector and the wonderfully talented Harry Nilsson wrote this song. It was recorded in 1965 by the Modern Folk Quartet. I was going to post Brian Wilson’s cover from 1995, which appeared on a Nilsson tribute album, but I think I prefer the original. It’s one of the last gasps of the Wall of Sound.
Hell, I’ll post both of them, even though this version is pretty much a carbon copy (maybe he thought the original was perfect as is, and WordPress won’t mind).
