Sleep Late My Lady Friend

Recorded/Published: 1967
Harry Nilsson's "Sleep Late My Lady Friend" includes the line "And dream a dream of Cielito Lindo." "Cielito Lindo" means "Beautiful Sky" and that's probably the reference Nilsson intended. "Cielito Lindo" is also the name of a Mexican folk song (with its familiar chorus of "Ay, ay, ay, ay").

Sleep Late My Lady Friend

This is surely Nilsson's most romantic song. A jazz ballad propelled by a sultry bassline and a vocal performance second to none. This is simply beautiful and the fact that it is so neglected is perhaps a reflection on the strength of 'Pandemonium Shadow Show'. If I were to explain to someone why I love Nilsson - this would be the first song I would play.
