The Monkees

In 1966,  TV introduced The Monkees;  a four member rock & roll band performing their songs to silly skits, similar to the Beatles movie "Help".  The show became an instant hit with teens and pre-teens.  Their records sold millions with such hits as; "I'm a Believer", "Daydream Believer", " I'm not your Stepping Stone" and "Words" to name a few.  I remember being a big fan of theirs in fifth grade.  Davy Jones was my favorite and Mickey being my second favorite.  The show was nothing but craziness, but who cared backed then; we wanted to watch them sing.

A Scene from their show singing "I'm a Believer"
