What the hell. Who are the Monkees?

Rachel said...

I love The Monkee's. My favorite song was "Last Train To Clarksville".
I used to have the biggest crush on Davey Jones.

Oh my God. Really? Wow - where's my Geritol?

A1: At the end of the first Shrek movie, SmashMouth sings a song called "I'm a Believer".

It was first recorded by the Monkees, a made-for-TV band of the 60's, who outlived their TV incarnation.

Rachel: That's a good one. My favorite is probably Daydream Believer.

When I was 11, I saw Davey Jones play the Artful Dodger in a production of Oliver! in L.A. with my cousins.

We were visiting from Upstate New York, so I felt like the ultimate country mouse visiting the big city.

I thought he was the bestest actor in the whole world after that.

EK: I got the same feeling when I saw that Rachel's Hump Day Hottie today was born after I started college.

You know, people say they monkey around. I'm just glad they're too busy singing to put anybody down. I mean, hey. They're just trying to be friendly.

Gotta go. Gonna watch them sing and play.

It's funny, but the one thing that is still recognizable about him, is his overbite.

laura b. said...

haha! I guess it kind of makes me feel old...but hey, Michael Nesmith is still cute!

Wasn't his mother the inventor of "White-Out"? Maybe those are his CEO clothes in the current photo. And yes, oh my God - where is the Geritol?

David in DC said...

Baby Bull: Just How I Felt.

Playtah: Thanks for the ear worm. Just wait until I unleash both verses and the chorus to the Theme from Underdog. (I was once in a band where that was our big finale or encore number.)

Churl: Hair is fleeting, but an overbite is forever.

L.B.: Your standards for judging cuteness are quite generous.

Great trivia pull anonymous visitor. His mom was, in fact, the inventor of, and patent-holder for "Liquid Paper". Thanks for playing, come visit again.

Link about the late Bette Nesmith:

Ooooh, "Liquid Paper", how could I have forgotten? And I was so close!

Evil-E said...

I wonder if he can write his own stuff now?

I did not recognize him without his little hat.

I always thought Lancelot Link was a better show than the Monkees. The chimps had more talent. (they used to air back to back on a local TV station when I was a kid)

dmarks said...

As kids we would always take the liquid paper bottle and use liquid paper on the label itself, so it said "Liquid Ape". I guess that ties into the Lance Link mention.

I won't say what we did to those yellow "Murine" bottles.

Oh my gawd! No way! I loved watching "The Monkeys" on TV. Then of course listening to their music.
