From the recording Last Train to Clarksville
When I was a small boy, I used to watch reruns of the Monkees TV show. I loved the show and the songs. I can even remember discovering an old record copy of the Beatles "A Hard Day's Night" that my mom had kicking around, and wondering who these guys were that were copying the Monkees (Yep, and I really thought the Monkees were playing their instruments on the show too ... how gullible is that? ;-) My favourite of all the Monkees tunes was "Last Train to Clarksville." I loved the song then, and I still love it now. So I figured, "what the heck, I'll cover it." It was a fun song to record. I hope you like it.
