Tunes For The Troops
 



 
**Artist Showcase**
So...I saw a show on HBO called *Paul Williams Still Alive* & I guess I had forgotten what a talented man he is. I wasn't able to garner much of his collective works but I hope you enjoy what is posted here.

Paul Hamilton Williams, Jr. (born September 19, 1940 is an Academy Award-winning American composer, musician, songwriter, and actor. He is perhaps best known for popular songs performed by a number of acts in the 1970s including Three Dog Night's "An Old Fashioned Love Song", Helen Reddy's "You and Me Against the World", David Bowie's "Fill Your Heart", and the Carpenters' "We've Only Just Begun" and "Rainy Days and Mondays", as well as his contributions to films such as "Evergreen" from A Star Is Born and "Rainbow Connection" from The Muppet Movie. He has also had a variety of high-profile acting roles such as Little Enos Burdette in the highly successful 1977 action-comedy Smokey and the Bandit, and as the villainous Swan in Brian De Palma's Phantom of the Paradise (which Williams also co-scored, receiving an Oscar nomination in the process), as well as television, theater, and voiceover work for animation.

Enjoy the variety of musical selections that the Canteen Deejays provide throughout the thread. Please ping any DJ with your requests for the Troops!


All music is removed on Monday.

Brrr....who knew it would be that cold in GA! I don’t even think I know who Paul Williams is...my bad.

I’ll have to listen to some of the tunes to refresh my memory. :)

Gesundheit!

Paul Williams made his millions by writing for Three Dog Night and the Carpenters.

This was being played at KING in Seattle when I was in the process of successfully infiltrating the station in 1972. I still don't know why this wasn't a hit. It is one of the greatest pain songs ever written.

Paul Williams: "Waking Up Alone"

It's my favorite Paul Williams song and is absolutely heartbreaking.
