Songs on Saturday ~ Daydream Believer

believe in your dreams
because if you don’t nobody else will

I remember this Monkees song from nineteen-hundred-and-frozen-to-death, (actually 1968).  Back the it wasn’t ‘cool’ to like the Monkees, not when here in England we had The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, Fleetwood Mac, and Manfred Mann.  But I liked this back then, and I still like it now.

Besides, I like the message, because I do believe in my dreams.

Please listen with a smile.

Songs on Saturday ~ Last Train to Clarkesville

in Clarksville it’s de rigueur to marry your cousin

I’ve never been To Tennessee but I like this Monkees song, and it’s so mid sixties.  Anyhow I like trains.

Enjoy, and try not to dance to this track.

Tunes on Tuesday ~ Rio

don’t spend your life getting high on booze and pot ~ get high on life

I chose this track just because I’m taking a vacation next week, (not in Rio).  But, listening to it again I’m pretty sure this ex-Monkee was high on something when he penned this song.

Anyhow, it’s a great warm-up for my vacation.

Please drink, smoke, and listen responsibly.
