Once upon a time little Harry Nilsson wrote a song for Midnight Cowboy called 'I Guess The Lord Must Be In New York City'. The film's director however had been using Harry's cover of Fred Neil's song 'Everybody's Talkin' as an example of the sort of song he wanted for the soundtrack and grew to like Harry's version so much that he never replaced it. Harry went on to win a Grammy for Everybody's Talkin' but had John Schlesinger used the song that Harry wrote, Nilsson would have also been eligible for an Oscar.
I Guess The Lord Must Be In New York City was used in the Sophia Lauren film La Mortadella however and it eventually made its way on to Nilsson's 1969 album 'Harry'.
Strangely, it was also released as single on RCA but under the name of Buck Earl. Perhaps in an attempt to crack the country charts. Whatever the case, it's another great Nilsson song.
