For fans of The Monkees, December 30th is a big day: It’s the birthday of both Davy Jones and Michael Nesmith!
Critics be damned, The Monkees put out some of the best pop songs of the 60s. (They certainly had some of the best songwriters at their disposal. Looking at you Neil Diamond!) So, in honor of Jones and Nesmith, we look at six tracks that we think are essentials in the Monkees catalog and should be cranked loudly today.
“Last Train To Clarksville”
“I’m A Believer”
