Screenwriter and director, Nora Ephron, died recently. Her films often incorporated popular music. Her film You’ve Got Mail, starring Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan, utilized four songs recorded by Harry Nilsson. In You’ve Got Mail, an extended verision of Harry’s “Remember (Christmas)” became a sweeping orchestral accompliment to the film’s score.
Nilsson’s recording of “Over the Rainbow” also appeared in the film.
