One of my favourite TV shows as a teenager in the 60’s was ‘The Monkees’ which started airing in 1966. Micky Dolenz (Circus Boy), Mike Nesmith, Peter Tork and Davy Jones contributed to the zany, upbeat madness – and also produced some classic songs, ‘Daydream Believer’, ‘Pleasant Valley Sunday’, and ‘I’m a Believer’ were all part of my teenage summers in Morecambe. Davy Jones died recently, but a week or so ago The Monkees released their first album in 20 years – Good Times. With songs written by Noel Gallagher, Paul Weller, Rivers Cuomo, Andy Partridge – and classics from earlier times by Neil Diamond and Harry Nilsson. Classic summer time music as NYC hits 90° over the weekend and the City empties – great lyrics, great harmonies. Good Times.
