The song that figures prominently in the plot, "Gonna Buy Me A Dog," is "credited" to Michael Nesmith
but is in actuality a Tommy Boyce
/ Bobby Hart
novelty tune. The reason the song is "credited" to Mike is because during mid-summer 1966 recording sessions for the show, Mike produced a bluesy instrumental version of the song for possible use on the series and the group's first album. Mike's version was not used and languished in storage until 2006. See more
