Music Monday: The Monkees

I'm pretty sure that I've mentioned before that my musical tastes indicate that I should've been a teenager in the 60s.  What an amazing decade of music!  (Did you see my Top 10 Beatles songs posts?  Part 1 and Part 2)

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

"Pleasant Valley Sunday" from Pisces, Aquarius, Capricorn, & Jones Ltd.

"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??

I did. One of my favorite songs from them is still Daydream Believer. I don't really know a whole bunch of songs by them but I really enjoyed the show. :)

I forgot to add that I too have a Music Monday up! :)

Pretty sure I was supposed to be a teenager then too. ;-)
