They’ve added WORDS, one of my favorite Micky songs. I love this song so much, I quoted it on my Senior yearbook page. Also love Peter’s bits – I prefer his serious singing over his silly stuff.
This was the last song of the show – Pleasant Valley Sunday.
One of the most amusing bits of the night was the following. Mike’s song, Daily Nightly was the first pop song to feature a Moog Synthesizer. Here’s how they performed it.
Also, Psychedelic go-go chick’s dancing hands make an appearance. I actually tapped her at one point because she was interfering with all of our views.
(This post goes hand in hand with this one, where Mike talks about how they decided to do it and how social media affects things today.)
Song #5 is Randy Scouse Git / Alternate Title.
Song #3 is You Told Me.
Song #2 in my week of Live Monkees from the Huntington, NY show is Sweet Young Thing.
I had a woman in front of me who spent the night thinking she was on an audition for Psychedelic Go-Go dancer. Her hands make an appearance. The video is jerky as I tried to keep the camera away from her.
