Nilsson for A-to-Z Challenge letter N

Nilsson does The PointHarry Nilsson is one of my favorites, especially his Nilsson Sings Newman album. ~happy~ Among other things, he teamed with Ringo Starr on one of the most surreal of my many surreal viewing pleasures, The Point.

Since today is food day, I probably should talk about noodles or some such, but Nilsson also does this song, which is about food, so I’m sharing this, instead of noodles.

Nilsson And My Favorite Earworm

It reminded me — and it should, since they inspired it — of The Nairobi Trio. Not the Kiwi band, but the Ernie Kovaks skit that the New Zealanders took the name from.

Oh, dear. TWO earworms. One for each ear.

Okay, to redeem Food Day, here’s a link to a site of Very Good Recipes Of Coconut And Lime. See also: margaritas and pina coladas. Drink ’em all up.

A WRITING PROMPT FOR YOU: A character gets an earworm.



I was born in Louisville, Kentucky, but now live in the woods in southern Indiana. Though I only write fiction, I love to read non-fiction. The more I learn about this world, the more fantastic I see it is.

    Yep, thanks for the ear worm. It’s a quiet and peaceful ear worm, though. I might use it as my mantra the next time I mediate.

    I enjoyed your post. I’m visiting from A-Z.
