Booger Is a Nilsson Expert

After learning Curtis had written the liner notes for seven Nilsson reissues, Howard quizzed him, playing the first note of Harry's biggest songs. Curtis nailed each one: "Everybody's Talking," "I Guess the Lord Must Be In New York City," "Coconut," "You're Breaking My Heart" and "Jump Into the Fire"--even guessing, sans-clip, which song Howard was simply thinking of: "Without You." Curtis said their connection went back 35 years: "I wrote him a fan letter in about '76 and he wrote me back."
