Everybody's Talkin' by Fred Neil (covered by Luna)

Fred Neil released his original of Everybody's Talkin' on his second (eponymous) album in 1966.

In 1969 Nillson's cover of the song was picked by John Schelsinger as the theme tune to Midnight Cowboy and thus began my (and many others) misconception that it was a Nillson original!

Fairly sure I was only set straight when Luna released their kazoo-tastic cover of it on the Sub Pop Singles Club in 1998

Audio: m4a

It got it's final airing at Luna's final airing in 2005
