247 – Nilsson – Jump Into The Fire (1971)
Written by Harry Nilsson
Produced by Richard Perry
Label – RCA/Victor
There’s a point in the outstanding Gangster epic “Goodfellas”, where lead character Henry Hill’s (Ray Liotta) coked out world of paranoia is finally reaching its implosion. The musical accompaniment is this fired up, pumping rocker from Harry Nilsson, a man well known for his own excess. The song fits the moment perfectly as the singer’s howls match the panic and fear portrayed on screen.
