The Flying Saucer Song

Recorded/Published: 1976
Many people think they recognize one of the main voices in Harry Nilsson's "The Flying Saucer Song" as Joe Cocker. But the voices are all Nilsson using three distinct voice inflections. The gruff background vocals, however, are provided by Joe Cocker, whose coarse delivery is similiar to Nilsson's.

"I don't think there's that much of a similarity," says Harry, "It's just that we both can occasionally muster up a brandy tone. We're whiskey-throated tenors. The Orson Welles type of guy from Citizen Kane."

"The Flying Saucer Song" was written for, and originally recorded, during the Pussy Cats sessions but wasn't released until Sandman.
