Watching that doc was what inspired the post!

Just to be the guy who wrote ONE of those immortal tunes - but he did so many...

Williams and Nichols were responsible for a number of successful pop hits from the 1970s, including several hits for
Three Dog Night (the aforementioned "An Old Fashioned Love Song", as well as "The Family of Man" and "Out in the Country"),
Helen Reddy ("You and Me Against the World"), and
the Carpenters, most notably "Rainy Days and Mondays", "I Won't Last a Day Without You", and "We've Only Just Begun", originally a song for a Crocker National Bank television commercial featuring newlyweds, and which has since become a cover-band standard and de rigueur for weddings throughout North America.

An early collaboration with Roger Nichols, "Someday Man", was covered by the Monkees (a group for which he auditioned but was not chosen<11>) on a 1969 single, and was the first Monkees' release not published by Screen Gems.<citation needed>

A frequent cowriter of Williams' was musician Kenneth Ascher. Their songs together included the popular children's favorite "Rainbow Connection", sung by Jim Henson (as Kermit the Frog) in The Muppet Movie (1979). They also wrote "You And Me Against The World", which became a Top 10 hit on Billboard for Helen Reddy in 1974.

I only found out about Lambchop through people involved with Merge Records; I wasn't really going to a lot of clubs and checking out the 'new music scene' so much by then.

 There's not exactly an aching void in my soul, but every once in a while I think I might have missed something.
 
I think the only '90s music which got my attention and still has the most appeal to me is the trip-hop, electronica, and dream-pop stuff out of the UK and other parts of Europe:  Stereolab, Hooverphonic, Portishead, Lush, etc.  I liked a lot of the indie stuff from the US and UK back then though (Liz Phair, Belly . Lambchop).

 

See, I missed Lambchop 100%. Now, I hear their/his influence everywhere.
