United StatesIn an appearance on the TV show "Playboy After Dark" in 1969, Harry Nilsson performed "Good Old Desk". A straight-faced Harry Nilsson told the host, Hugh Hefner, that the meaning of the song "Good Old Desk" was in its initials - "GOD." Years later Nilsson admitted, "I bullshitted him. I thought it was funny."

At the end of his appearance, Harry sang "Cast And Crew" in which he recites the credits for the film Skidoo. "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."
"Playboy After Dark" was Hugh Hefner's second TV series and was very similar to his earlier show "Playboy's Penthouse." "After Dark" premeired in January of 1969 and 26 episodes of the show were aired in 23 cities.
"'Playboy After Dark' is one of the jewels in Playboy's crown and was considered an important cornerstone in Hugh Hefner's legacy." -- Kevin Burns
