"Perfect Day" by Harry Nilsson


A brief and grand ending to Harry Nilsson's final RCA Records album, "Perfect Day" is another one of his most highly crafted ballads. In a folk, fingerpicking melodic base, this is Nilsson's take on the comfort of love (and maybe art in general). He delivers a minor masterpiece with this song that, coming near the end of his checkered career, is aptly fitting.
