My Top 1000 Songs #593: Think About Your Troubles

A little slow, a little meandering, yet something otherworldly about Harry Nilsson's gorgeous vocals keeps it all on track. It's hard to strip this of its childhood associations with 1970's animated made-for-tv movie The Point, which I still vaguely remember watching as a kid, and the nostalgic embrace of the song (like the rest of the album) may be part of its charm for me. But it's a lovely, timeless ballad in its own right.
