OF2 - I'd Rather Be Dead

around this time last year, when i was in the midst of one of my periodic harry nilsson kicks, i discovered a short unreleased documentary about the making of son of schmilsson called "did somebody drop his mouse?" it's on youtube in five parts, and they are all well worth your time if you're at all interested in nilsson or the process of writing and recording music. my favorite part, though, is part four, which covers the day nilsson got a bunch of cute british senior citizens drunk enough to sing merrily about their impending decision between wetting themselves and offing themselves. in a short life full of fine hours, this may have been nilsson's finest.
