OK, more 70's: This '71 Harry Nilsson composition was the 3rd single release from "Nilsson Schmilsson" in '72, peaking at #8 on Billboard. A novelty calypso number, it features 3 characters - the narrator, his sister and the doctor - all sung by him in different voices. The entire song is played in 1 chord - C7. Featured in Tarantino's "Reservoir Dogs" and sung by Kermit The Frog on "The Muppets". When asked in a '68 press conference whom his favorite American artist was, John Lennon answered without hesitation, "Nilsson". Best friends with Monkee Mickey Dolenz until his death in '94.

Yesterday's answer: "The Last Time" by the Rolling Stones. One of my fave early stones tunes.
