Harry Nilsson - This Could Be The Night

The clip starts with a snippet of another song, "Superman,"  by Nilsson, but then pivots into "This Could Be The Night." TCBTN is a curiosity because it was co-written with Phil Spector sometime in the early to mid sixties. It shows what a careful student of songwriting Nilsson was, both because he was willing to apprentice with an established figure like Spector, and because the style is so different from his better-known work. Might have been a hit for someone, but in the end wasn't.
