The cradle will rock

The Guardian
United States
November 22, 2002
Attempting to quiet his screaming baby, the author describes resorting to music. After unsuccessfully trying a collection of songs for children, the author played "Me And My Arrow":
Harry's keynote song from his animated feature The Point! (all about a round-headed boy called Oblio who lived in a land of pointy-headed people) had an instant effect. Its slight, cantering rhythm conspired with Nilsson's gentle tones to send her into some kind of reverie. I played it again the following day with my disbelieving wife standing before me. Once again, Dora relaxed in my arms as we gently danced around the room. Whatever parental deficiencies I felt in that first week were compensated by Harry Nilsson and his greatest hits.
