Song of the Day – “One” – Three Dog Night

RIP to Cory Wells, one of the three singers for one of the best singles bands ever.

This cover of a Harry Nilsson song will kick off a group of cover songs. I don’t post too many of them, but I love it when a cover isn’t a slavish reproduction of the original. When Cory and Danny Hutton add the “Number!” dissonant harmonies to Chuck Negron’s lead vocal, it lifts this cover and makes it original.
