The Monkees- Head Clip


Head- bathroom scene



Hey, hey, we're The Monkees
You know we love to please
A manufactured image
With no philosophies.

You say we're manufactured.
To that we all agree.
So make your choice and we'll rejoice
in never being free!

Hey, hey, we're The Monkees
We've said it all before
The money's in, we're made of tin
We're here to give you more!
The money's in, we're made of tin
We're here to give you...

February 13, 1967: The Monkees announced that from now on they would be playing on their own recordings instead of session musicians.

Take that critics!

I for one absolutely L-O-V-E, LOVE The Monkees! I have ever since I was a little girl watching their tv show.
Mike is definitely my favorite, and he wrote some of my favorite songs to this day. Anyways, they crack me up, I like them, I like their music. Their movie was really thought provoking. I feel like they are talented, but get overlooked much of the time.
I'll always be a fan.  :D

I watched it as a little kid too; Monday nights when it first aired then when it was syndicated. I was thrilled when MTV picked it up in the mid '80's. Yeah, I love them too!

Mike is an interesting guy. Still out there playing occasionally. Here's a rather touching recent update from
his Facebook feed:

Quote
When we mapped the Marfa metaphor for the concert there with the Watkins Family, as those of you who were in on it will recall, we came up with ”Light”. The Light of Art that illumines and enriches society, civilization and humanity. That is why it was so ironic that when I arrived in Marfa to play the concert I was pr...actically blind. I had been slowly losing my sight since 2007, and then in 2010 it took a dramatic turn for the worse and by the time of the Marfa concert in October of 2011 my world was a Monet painting with pretty colors but no distinct identities. Thanksgiving and Christmas were cold and lonely and came and went in a steady deterioration of the remaining sight, and by the time January 2012 was here I was legally blind. I needed assistance for most all activities, which was lovingly and unselfishly provided by my friends and companions Jessica, Robin, Katrina, and Jeffrey ---sometimes much to their own discomfort and cost. I could not drive or cook or get around on my own. It got worse, but I will spare you all that. Suffice to say things were bad, but my friends were good – even saintly. In this darkness I reached out to a lovely friend and fellow musician, Janni Littlepage, and asked if she knew someone who might help. She suggested Alexander Holmes, a surfing ophthalmologist here on the peninsula. When I went to see him he said “Well, the bad news is that it is cataracts. The good news is that it is cataracts. I can fix those” He scheduled me for surgery late January and in a simple, painless, operation he replaced the cataracts with brilliant clear new intraocular lenses –inside the eye – and I can see clearly now, just like the song says. So, where I was blind, now I see. In fact, I see better now than I ever have in my life. To those who have inquired, that is where I have been my dear friends, wandering in darkness. But it is no longer dark. And though am returning only slowly to things, still digesting the lesson in all this, grateful for every step, I can see the light of intelligence has informed every hand, guided every move, and provided every direction. The light of Marfa shines; the Light of Life expressing itself in each unselfish, generous and beautiful act. It is an extraordinary, inspiring, and lovely thing we do: that we heal each other.

I think when I watched them it was either on TV Land or Nick at Night, it was like the mid-90's.
But now I own them on DVD so I can watch them whenever I desire.  ;)

I wish I could have seen Mike in concert, I've seen the other three once.
Thanks for that Klang! I'm not up on that Facebook Frenzy, so it was nice to be able to read it here.  :)

OK.  Here it's half and half.  Peter Tork is playing piano, Michael Nesmith is playing electric guitar and Davy Jones is playing maracas.  Studio musicians are playing bass, drums and acoustic guitar...

The music video for Pleasant Valley Sunday was filmed several months before The Beatles filmed Magical Mystery Tour.
