Sunny Pop Song # 2
I dug out my mono copy of the first Monkees LP the other night and it was a splendid listen I can tell you. The general mood of it also put me in mind of this, which came much later when they'd bizarrely even started being a sort of 'real' band (though to be fair Davy Jones could always sing and Mike Nesmith not only looked the best but could, famously, actually 'play', maaan); it certainly has the requisite breeziness for our Easter weekend and may even afford Mondo some further 'straw hat and cane' action in the chorus.
The Monkees - 'Someday Man' (1969)
Wish me luck; I'm off to try and find some Smarties Easter eggs on a Woolworths-free high street.
