Producer: Rick Jarrard

Harry singing the credits for the film Skidoo. Harry sang the song during an appearance on the TV show Playboy After Dark - "That was live. It just happens that in writing that particular thing it was really a lot of work so it stayed with me longer because it was four minutes of peoples' names and their jobs. So it was trying to write a melody to encompass the names and the jobs to make it come out rhythmically and in rhyme. You know, it was a very difficult thing so you spend a lot of time with it. And I became very familar with the cast and crew of the movie."

Cuddly Toy

Writer: Harry Nilsson
Publisher: Screen Gems-EMI Music Inc
Recorded: 1967
Producer: Rick Jarrard
Arranger: George Tipton
The Monkees recorded a version of "Cuddly Toy" in April of 1967. It appeared in November 1967 on their Pisces, Aquarius, Capricorn & Jones Ltd. album. Pandemonium Shadow Show which contains Nilsson's version of the song was released a month later.

Some have interpreted the song as describing a "gang bang." Harry himself sometimes described the song that way in interviews, but other times implied that he did not have that in mind when writing the song.

The Monkees version was performed twice on the TV show (during the episode "Everywhere A Sheik Sheik" [9-25-67] and the episode "Monkees On The Wheel" [12-11-67]).

"It was nice. It was nice enough for RCA to take it off my album and put it on theirs. They deleted it from my album and I think there were only 1200 copies. It's a real collectors item" - Harry [confusing "Cuddly Toy" with "Daddy's Song"]
