Why do people hate The Monkees?

Those people who say that are snobs. True, The Monkees didn't play their own instruments on their early recordings but that didn't mean at least some of the members couldn't actually play those instruments themselves. It should be pointed out also that many groups at the time didn't play their own instruments on their recordings. One of the most notorious were The Beach Boys. I can often hear Hal Blaine and Glen Campbell playing on their recordings instead of the band members themselves. Yes, The Monkees did record songs written by others but again, so did many other artists. If The Sex Pistols (who were just as much a fabricated group as The Monkees) can be in the Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame, then The Monkees should also be there. Besides, I've always enjoyed their music more than I have the music of The Sex Pistols.

what song did massive monkees, southern movement, and beat ya feet kings dance to in the season finale?

Michael Nesmith

Is it true that in 1967 the first Boy Band , The Monkees outsold both the Beatles and the Rolling Stones?

The first boy band was The Osmonds, who started 8 years before the Monkees. Yeah, "I'm a Believer" was the best selling single in 1967 and their album, More of the Monkees, out performed the Rolling Stones' Between the Buttons and the Beatles' Sgt. Pepper (although that only counts 1967 and if you look at all-time sales, both of the other two albums have sold MANY more copies than More of the Monkees) And they did indeed give Hendrix his first national touring opportunity that same year.

The Monkees: Were they serious or were they a false group?

The Monkees was a pop-rock quartet created in Los Angeles in 1965 for the American television series The Monkees, which aired from 1965 to 1968. The primary members were Micky Dolenz, Davy Jones, Michael Nesmith, and Peter Tork, who were the public face of a music production system under the supervision of Don Kirshner. At the start, the band members provided vocals, and were given some performing and production opportunities, but they eventually fought for and earned the right to collectively supervise all musical output under the band's name. On their third album, Headquarters (produced by Chip Douglas and issued in May 1967), the four Monkees wrote and played on much of their own material. Nearly all vocals and instruments on Headquarters were performed by the four Monkees.The album shot to No. 1, but was quickly eclipsed by a milestone cultural event when the Beatles released Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band. After the television show was cancelled, Rafelson directed the four Monkees in a feature film, Head, originally titled "Untitled." The film was executive-produced by Schneider and co-written and co-produced by Rafelson with a then relatively unknown Jack Nicholson. Rumors abound that the title was chosen in case a sequel was made. The advertisements would supposedly have read: "From the people who gave you HEAD." [5] Nicholson also assembled the film's soundtrack album. The film, conceived and edited in a stream of consciousness style, featured oddball cameo appearances by movie stars Victor Mature, Annette Funicello, a young Teri Garr, boxer Sonny Liston, famous stripper Carol Doda, and musician Frank Zappa. It was filmed in Screen Gems Studios and on location in California, Utah, and The Bahamas between 19 February and May 17, 1968 and premiered in New York City on November 6 of that year (the film later debuted in Hollywood on November 20). Head was not a commercial success, in part because it was the antithesis of The Monkees television show, intended to comprehensively demolish the group's carefully-groomed public image. Rafelson and Nicholson's "Ditty Diego-War Chant" (recited at the start of the film by the Monkees), ruthlessly parodies Boyce and Hart's "Monkees Theme." A sparse advertising campaign (with no mention of the Monkees) squelched any chances of the film doing well, and it played only briefly in nearly-empty cinemas. In commentary for the DVD release, Nesmith said that by this time, everyone associated with the Monkees, including the four Monkees, "had gone crazy." They were each using the platform of the Monkees to push their own disparate career goals, to the detriment of the Monkees project. Indeed, Nesmith said, Head was Rafelson and Nicholson's intentional effort to "kill" the Monkees, so that they would no longer be bothered with having to deal with the matter. Tork said in DVD commentary that everyone had developed such difficult personalities that the big-name stars invited as guests on the show would invariably leave the experience "hating everybody." Over the intervening years Head has developed a cult following for its innovative style and anarchic humor, and the soundtrack album (long out of print, but re-released by Rhino in the '80s and now available in an expanded CD version) is counted among their most adventurous recordings. Members of the Monkees, Nesmith in particular, cite Head (the first Monkees album not to include any Boyce and Hart compositions) as one of the crowning achievements of the band. The highlights include the Goffin/King composition Porpoise Song. which i recomend you find its a great song

when the beerd guy faled to kill all the other talking apes and monkees how come the statute of libertys just?

That's when he discovers he's not in the past or on some different planet, but that he's in the future of New York City. By the fact of there being apes ruling the planet, the apes have evolved, persisted and won in the future. It may very well be dumb, but before declaring a classic movie ending dumb you might want to brush up on your spelling of basic words, like: beard, failed, statue, liberty, stuff, and so on. "monkees" is the name of a TV band in the 1960s. Only one question mark is needed at the end of a question.

Is the Jonas Brothers TV show on Disney a re-incarnation of the 1960's TV show "The Monkees" TV show?

I guess one could make that sort of an assumption - though, I don't really think the word re-incarnation is accurate enough. Yes, it's no secret that TV programmes (especially ones targeted at children) have been made about music bands - it's been done for years. The Monkees was definitely one of the first, which could be considered one of the founding programmes of the idea. But there have been many. Miami 7, for example - the programme in 1999 (and 2000 in America), focused around the pop-band S Club 7. And of course now the Jonas Brothers' own take on this classic concept. I don't think it would be fair to say that the Jonas Brothers' "version" is a direct re-incarnation, as for one thing the band was formed before the TV show, unlike The Monkees. But, I do think it fair to say that it follows a similar concept, a timeless concept - a children's TV programme about a band. Whether the programme creates the band (The Monkees), or the programme brings the preexisting band to the world's attention (Miami 7), or the programme is simply made to heighten the careers of the band (The Jonas Brothers). I guess at the end of the day, it's just a twist on a classic concept. All children have to live with it, we did with The Monkees (well actually it was Miami 7, for me) and now the little nippers today have to live through The Jonas Brothers TV show. I think this is more of my opinion on the subject - but, I hope it has helped.

What are the lyrics to "I'd go the whole wide world" by the Monkees?

Whole Wide World When I was a young boy, my momma she said to me: There's only one girl in the world for you And she probably lives in Tahiti Or maybe in the Bahamas where the Caribbean sea is blue Weepin' away in the tropical night because nobody's told her 'bout you I'd go the whole wide world I'd go the whole wide world just to find her I'd go the whole wide world I'd go the whole wide world to find out where they hide her YEAH! Why am I hanging around in the rain out here Tryin' to think of a girl Why are my eyes fillin' up with these lonely tears When there's girls all over the world? Or is she lying on a tropical beach somewhere Underneat the tropical sun Hiding away in the heat wave there Hopin' that I won't be long? I'd go the whole wide world I'd go the whole wide world just to find her I'd go the whole wide world I'd go the whole wide world to find out where they hide her [repeat] YEAH! I'd go the whole wide world [repeat to fade]

Where can I get an autographed poster of the band called the Monkees?

I've tried to write Peter with no reply... and Mike's pretty much hopeless when it comes to autographs... unless you want to buy one from his website (yay expensiveness) www.videoranch.com... but yah, I'd take a look at prices on ebay... good luck :)

Which one of the Monkees was an Eagle Scout?

"Double Barrell Shotgun Wedding"). A nod to The Girl Scouts is made in No. 15, “Too Many Girls” (a.k.a.

What are the names of the four guys of the Monkees singing group?

Mike Nesmith, Peter Tork, Mickey Dolenz, Davy Jones, God I love these guys and the music came along at a period in my life when the 70's were in full swing, I loved listening to it and had an original cassette that I wish I still had. My favorite song of all time is Pleasant Valley Sunday, but as all the rest of us who really listen to the music Auntie Grizelda was a good one too. I always loved Daydream Believer too. But, my all time favorite song and one that comes with a cool story is The Last Train To Clarksville. In the late 1970's early 80's or there about, The local train station located in Hopkinsville Ky. which is in fact 20 miles from Clarksville Tn. was shutting down and the passenger trains to and from Hopkinsville to Clarksville were going to end forever. My grandfather and grandma and all of my family immediately loaded up onto the train and one of the family drove to the station in Clarksville to pick us up. The whole time we had the radio playing on the train, and the song? You guessed it the train was flooded with the Monkees greatest song of all time. So, I was actually ON the Last Train To Clarksville!!

What are your thoughts on the passing of Monkees star Davy Jones?

the MONKEES?????

No he was not, Micky Dolenz, Michael Nesmith, Davy Jones, and Peter Tork.

The Monkees?

Yes. I used to watch them like clockwork when I was a kid. I have a TON of Monkee memorobelia that I've collected over the years, though I didn't start collecting until the mid or late '80s when they had their anniversary reunion. I've got lots of rare items as well. Unfortunately, they're not near as popular as they were back then, so their memorobelia has become scarce. I still enjoy them today, though I don't believe their reruns are currently on tv :( I have all their albums on cassette, along with the records, some of them being imports (Australian and Chinese), not to mention I have their pink 45 record "Heart and Soul" that came out back in '88. :D I grew up watching them and still love 'em today. I just can't believe that they tried to remake the Monkees, calling themselves "The New Monkees" - gimme a break! They made 1 record, then they flew the coop - lol. I'll stick with the original Monkees, thank you very much! Can't beat the originals!!

the monkees.........................?

I'm not ashamed to admit that I was a big fan of the Monkees back in the day.Recently a movie about them happened to come on at around 3am lol...and it was pretty good. I had never heard of it.It told quite a bit about what went on behind the scenes that one would have never guessed. Davy Jones, of course, was my favorite Monkee. "Daydream Believer" is still one of my favorite 'guilty pleasures'. I recently discovered that the writer of it, John Stewart, who lived in the same city as I do, passed away in Jan. of this year at age 68. May he R.I.P.

What was one of your favorite songs by Davy Jones of the Monkees?

Do people still watch the monkees on tv?

Davy Jones once of the Monkees died today. Do you remember him?

The Monkees were a manufactured band to counter or cash in on the Brit pop music invasion of the US in the 60s, and he was an ideal member - for his Britishness, his accent (close enough to Liverpool) and his cuteness. He was a child actor in the UK soap opera Coronation Street. I am old enough to remember Mickey Dolenz as a child actor too, in the kids' TV show Circus Boy. Mike Nesmith was a real musician. I used to enjoy the Monkees on TV and they did some good singles - especially I'm a Believer.
