Harry Nilsson…

Met The Monkees through producer Chip Douglas; Douglas had played bass on a Nilsson collaboration with Phil Spector. Nilsson sat at a piano and played the group a selection of his recent songs, for them to possibly record. Michael Nesmith's reaction to what they heard was a delighted “Where the fuck did you COME from, man?!” Nilsson was an instant hit with the Monkees, who did record his “Cuddly Toy” for their next album, and later “Daddy's Song” for their movie Head (1968). When Nilsson heard “Cuddly Toy” on the radio, he knew he could quit his job at the bank.
