Boyce and Hart were an American singer/songwriter pop duo popular in the 1960s and 1970s. They appeared as themselves in the sixth season episode, "Serena Stops the Show" (1970).


The acclaimed songwriting duo, Tommy Boyce and Bobby Hart are considered to be one of the most influential teams of popular music in the 1960s and 1970s. Boyce and Hart played a pivotal role in creating the Monkee sound as composers and producers of their most recognizable hits including the Monkees Theme, Last Train to Clarksville, I'm Not Your Steppin' Stone, Valleri, I Wanna Be Free and Words.

Boyce and Hart went on to enjoy a successful career as a performing duo penning several more Top Ten Hits including, I Wonder What She's Doing Tonight, Out & About and Alice Long (You're Still My Favorite Girlfriend). Together they were featured guests on the 1960s television talk shows, Bewitched, I Dream of Jeannie, Flying Nun, and were featured in the top teen magazines.  

Additionally, whether as a writing duo or as co-writers with others, they have penned some of our favorite classic hits, such as, Come a Little Bit Closer, Hurts So Bad, Pretty Little Angel Eyes, Keep on Singing, Under the Moon of Love, and the theme to the soap opera Days of Our Lives. Their songs have been covered by hundreds of artists around the world, used in numerous movies and television shows, and in commercials.

In 1968 the duo campaigned to support Robert F. Kennedy in his run for the Presidency, and they spearheaded the "Let Us Vote", or "L.U.V." campaign, which ultimately helped to lower the voting age to eighteen in the United States (it had been twenty-one).

Although, during the early seventies Tommy and Bobby continued to be friends and write together, they began to involve themselves in creative and successful projects independent of each other. 1975 found Tommy Boyce and Bobby Hart teaming up again, but this time with Mickey Dolenz and Davy Jones of The Monkees. The foursome recorded two albums for Capitol Records and in 1976 embarked on a successful world tour to commemorate the Ten Year Anniversary of the Monkees as “Dolenz, Jones, Boyce & Hart”.

Decades later, the impact of Boyce and Hart still resonates. Tune into any oldies station, and at least once during the course of any given day you will very likely hear a Boyce and Hart composition.

Tommy and Bobby remained the best of friends until Tommy's untimely death on November 23, 1994. As of 2015, Bobby lives in Los Angeles with his wife MaryAnn and Tommy's widow Caroline lives in Nashville.[1]
