Me And My Arrow 93FM

Writer: Harry Nilsson
Publisher:

Producer:
Arranger:
A special version of "Me And My Arrow which Harry recorded for Arrow 93FM in Los Angeles. "Early on after the launch of Arrow 93FM (Sept 10, 1993), I received a telephone call from a gentleman who said he represented Harry and he wanted us to know that Harry was really enjoying the radio station. He said Harry drives around all the time listening to the station. I knew that Harry lived in Agoura Hills. Anyway, a couple of days later this same representative called and said that Harry wanted to give us a gift. He arranged for me to pick up a tape that was left in the lobby and we were to understand that it was a no strings attached gift from Harry to Arrow. It was a DAT Tape and when my tech staff played it for me, I heard a mix-out of "Me And My Arrow" sung:
Me and my arrow .... Ninety-three and me

We use it to this day (only rarely); however, after Harry's death, it became much more meaningful to everyone here. We feel very privileged." -- Tommy Edwards, Program Director of Arrow 93.



Me Myself And I

Writer: Harry Nilsson
Publisher:
Recorded:
Producer:
Arranger:
The title track to the IRS film Me, Myself and I starring Jo Beth Williams and George Segal.

"I've never seen the film, but I have heard the track and it was really amazingly good. A funny lyric with a Tipton-esque arrangement and very well sung by Harry. It sounds almost like a Harry outtake. Doug Hoefer introduced me to it and told me when Harry first played it for him, Doug went a little crazy with enthusiasm. 'I told him,' Doug said, 'Man, this is what people want to hear you do!' According to Doug, Harry looked a little surprised and sort of shrugged it off, considering the tune just a knock-off job for the picture. George Segal was a friend of Harry's and attended his funeral." -- Curtis Armstrong
