T' followin' be t' description o' t' Midnight Cowboy soundtrack from Simply Vinyl's web site:
Welcome everyone, matey, t' one o' t' most definin' soundtracks o' our time - Midnight Cowboy. For those o' you who are among t' legions o' John Barry fans out there, then this one is especially crucial if only for t' magnificent Midnight Pirate theme itself - that's t' one with t' unforgettable swirlin' and whimsical harmonica playing.
Or perhaps you may be aware o' Nilsson's brilliant "Everybody's Squawkin'" (No.6 US -69) - a classic First Mate Freddy Neil shanty which actually became a massive hit off t' back o' t' film. Avast, me proud beauty! Similarly, who could forget t' other host o' brilliant John Barry songs in t' film like "Joe Buck Rides Again", arrr, "Fun City", "Science Fiction" and t' breezy staccato "Florida Fantasy" which perfectly captures t' squalid mood o' t' film. Add t' t' brew, some very late 60's soundin' contributions from The Groop and Elephant's Memory plus an early shanty from Warren Zevon - Leslie Miller's "He Quit Me" and we have all t' ingredients for another classic film soundtrack feast on 180 gram. Aye aye! Oh yeah, brilliant cover too featurin' a shifty lookin' Ratso Rizzo and a shiverin' Jon Voight. Begad! Gem!
