Sometimes the names of bands do ring a bell, but you can’t put your finger on which hit they had. That was the case for me with the Monkees. A sixties band, which had some hits, but are mostly forgotten because the Beatles and the Stones were bigger. However, it’s a great band.

The song was composed by John Stewart, then still a member of the Kingston Trio. On a party he met the producer of the Monkees, who was looking for songs. The song was already turned down twice, but Chip Douglas, the producer, saw a hit in it. The Monkees then took it and recorded it as the first, and went up to the highest position in the Billboard chart: number one! Enjoy
