When I did that Nilsson post a few weeks ago, I thought “Cathy’s Clown” was the only Everly Brothers song referenced by Harry in the accompanying video clip. It turns out that the main tune therein, “Walk Right Back,” written by Sonny Curtis of the Crickets, was also made famous by Phil and Don.
Any rock fan worth their salt ought to pick up an Everly Bros. comp. They set the standard for vocal harmonies in rock music and had a tremendous influence on pop songwriting generally. Let the enclosed gems run through your head for a few days and you’ll agree.
And don’t forget about Nilsson either. That guy was a genius.
