Harry Nilsson had delivered his own contribution for the Midnight Cowboy soundtrack (I Guess The Lord Must Be In New York City), so did Joni Mitchell, Bob Dylan (Lay Lady Lay) and Randy Newman (Cowboy). All in vein. For the main theme, director John Schlessinger went for this existing Fred Neil song in the two year old Harry Nilsson version. The Grammy associated the song with Harry in the first place. Lyric line "Going where the climat suits my clothes" was obviously lifted from Bob Dylan's Worried Blues (see: The Bootleg Series 1-3).
