OK, I'm bored with all of the political haggling and pity-posts... time for a show-your-age trivia quiz:

From 70’s radio (“the only time top-40 was any good” :-)

What is the name of this song, who wrote it, and what group made it popular?

One is the loneliest number that you’ll ever do.
Two can be as bad as one, it’s the loneliest number since the number one…..
etc.

Hint: The group charted many other songs by such then-unknown songwriters as Randy Newman, Hoyt Axton, Laura Nyro, Paul Williams, and the guy who wrote this one.
But none of their hits were written by anyone in their own group.

Another hint: The songwriter (one of America’s best, ever) had a London apartment where both Keith Moon and Mama Cass Elliot died.

NO FAIR USING GOOGLE-- (that’s cheating :-)

I know the song and the best version for me was Harry Nilsson. Also seems to fit most of your clues as well!

I suspect the band you are talking about may be those three pooches in the dark!

You pegged it. :-)

And Nilsson was THE MAN. One of the best writers ever. Damn good voice, too. Not sure exactly how many songs he wrote, or how many were covered by others, but there must have been many dozens.

Interesting that one of his biggest hits was written by the boys from Badfinger, though.

So... you got any posers?

Who sang back up on "You're So Vain"?

None.
Brian Wilson used studio musicians "The Wrecking Crew" to record the instruments on Pet Sounds and the "Boys" only recorded the vocals.

John Lennons comeback hit "I'm Losing You"has an original alternative recording with a much harder guitar solo.
Who performed on the original?
