I remember reading an interview with Autechre where they said they didn't really mind how people pronounced it/there wasn't any "official" pronunciation, but they themselves pronounced it in a similar way to Chris M (but with a Rochdale accent)

@ChrisM - See if you can find Nixon's enemies list and see if anyone appears on both lists. I'm betting Up With People is on both.

Funny how most of Nilsson's big hits were written by other artists. He was such a brilliant songwriter.
Avatar Mon. 8/24/15 11:04am Cecile:

True, but he was also a brilliant singer and interpreter. A rare combination.
  Mon. 8/24/15 11:05am Bob:

Nixon really had Field a Commander Cohen on his list?.? Bizarre

Dick used to listen to Frank's version of this over and over in the Oval Office, alone late at night, in those dark Last Days, during the Watergate Hearings.
While putting away ahalf a decanter of vSOP.

It was a joke the minute he put on CCS.
Avatar Mon. 8/24/15 11:23am Chris M.:

i feel like just with the current #POTUSPlaylists, there may have been an intern involved with the selection process. just my own opinion
Avatar Mon. 8/24/15 11:23am Cecile:

I think some hippies broke into the Oval Office and faked it.

Was Nixon a BOC fan?

If it was Nixon’s intern that made this list it would be some pimply-faced 15 year old virgin who only listened to “The Kingsmen” and nothing else.

Dick was a very mysterious man in search of a soul, even if it was not his own.
  Mon. 8/24/15 11:33am KP:

Saw them play this the night Nixon resigned
  Mon. 8/24/15 11:34am briania:

The musical taste of RMN was pretty well documented: "When the Fords moved in, Betty Ford found one of the Nixons’ boxes. “It was marked, ‘Tapes, Do Not Touch,’ ... turns out, it was filled with the former president’s Mantovani recordings." (via firstladies.org).

How did the one Simpson's episode go? "On this spot in 1973, Richard Nixon bowled consecutive 300 games."
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 8/24/15 11:38am Kali G:

It was rumored that Sammy Davis Jr is the one who turned Dick onto the hip music that the kids protesting were listening to, for he wanted to get into the minds of the next generation that would eventually become Republicans as they aged.
  Mon. 8/24/15 11:39am P-90:

Haldeman's memoir states that "all calls were held and interruptions kept to a minimun" once a week when Dick would watch "Jimmy Duarante Presents The Lennon Sisters" in the Press Lounge.
Avatar Mon. 8/24/15 11:40am Parq:

Kai G, judging from the number of boomers I know who are Repubs, or centrist Democrats who support GOP initiatives, it must have worked.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 8/24/15 11:40am Stevel:

Little known fact. RMN secretly recorded backups for Sympathy for the Devil which were added into the final mix.
  Mon. 8/24/15 11:41am Richard Nixon:

hey what s up?
i listened all the WireTappers. they are good.
  Mon. 8/24/15 11:42am P-90:
