In an August 2016 interview with Rolling Stone, Michael Nesmith spoke about his composition "Circle Sky," a key song from the soundtrack of The Monkees' 1968 feature film, Head:
"I also wrote this one when we were performing. I wanted to explore the power trio of us. In a strange way, we were actually pretty good. Micky was a real garage-band drummer. I was a real scream-and-shout guitar player and Peter was a very precise player. He could play interesting lines and fills on the bass. The power trio that existed between us was seldom explored. The lyrics are about television and the corporate man."
