I actually saw the movie "Midnight Cowboy" at the theater, and for the past 44 years I thought "Everybody's Talking" was done by Glen Campbell, and didn't even know who Nilsson was until years later. When a casual visit to the movies imdb page proved me wrong, it started an argument with my country fan wife. But After proving to her Nilsson did the movie version, she then claimed the popular radio version was Glen, covering the movie version. Made sense to me, but I proceeded to research it anyway. I went to a list of hit singles for Glen on a Wiki discography, it was never a hit single for Glen. I looked up Billboards hit singles for 1969,
17, Wichita Lineman Glen Campbell
71, Galveston Glen Campbell
84, Everybody's Talkin Nilsson
I then looked up Country hits for 1969, Everybody's Talkin was nowhere on the list. The only reference I could find tying Glen to this song, is he played it once on his TV show, on Season 4 Episode 5 October 19, 1971. He may have it on an album, since dozens did covers on it, but apparently the version that got all the radio play, was Nilsson. Interesting side note, Nilsson was more a writer then a performer, however he didn't write this song, Fred Neil did.
