When Harry met Aimee

Harry Nilsson begat Aimee Mann. And Badfinger begat Harry Nilsson and Aimee Mann.

Aimee Mann's clutch of songs on the Magnolia soundtrack, including her rendition of Nilsson's One, elevated it from being a good picture to being a very good picture. And when she covered Baby Blue it all but overshadowed all other offerings on 1996's Come and Get It - A Tribute to Badfinger. Who knew that, 20 years later, thanks to Breaking Bad, the song would become inextricably linked with the production of methamphetamine.
