Song of the Day: "Everybody's Talkin'" by Debbie Harry

Someone just posted this incredibly obscure clip of Debbie Harry singing "Everybody's Talkin'" -- made famous by Harry Nilsson -- at Squeezebox back in 1996, a period I remember as her "lost years" when her solo recording contract was canceled and Blondie had yet to reform. Have a listen -- she sounds fantastic -- because something tells me it's not going to stay up for long.

P.S. There's a great appraisal of the legendary downtown nightspot HERE.
The year was 1994. Rudy Giuliani had just been elected mayor of New York. It was before the city was gripped by terror, before Times Square was recast as a Disneyfied playground for tourists, before models and bottles infiltrated, soured and sterilized its clubs.

P.S. There's also a documentary about the venue that premiered in 2008 at the Tribeca Film Festival.
