Another band that I've always loved from this time actually formed because of a TV Show. The Monkees aired in September 1966 and ran until March 1968. The show was inspired by The Beatles movie A Hard Day's Night. The videos I've chosen are from the TV show.
This was the theme song:
I absolutely loved Davy Jones. He passed away in February of 2012. :( My cousin and I got to meet him when he came to our local amusement park for a free summer concert. We even got kissed on the cheek!!
Here are some of my favorite Monkees songs!
"Last Train to Clarksville" from The Monkees
"(I'm Not Your) Steppin' Stone" from More of the Monkees
"Daydream Believer" from The Birds, The Bees, & The Monkees
"Valleri" from The Birds, The Bees, & The Monkees
This last song was released after the show was off the air. So the video is not from the show.
"Listen to the Band" from The Monkees Present
Did you ever listen to The Monkees or see the show? Have a favorite song??
