The Monkees - Because when it comes to Music I Don't Monkey Around

Updated on October 12, 2015

First I have several of these songs on cassette. Second this album was on my Amazon Wish list for a while. And I do say was. On 10/2/2014 this album was part of the Amazon $5 Albums on Sale Now list. So on 10/4/2014 I added it to my collection.This sale is only for the month but still worth sharing.

Looking back I remember watching these guys on TV all the time. And for those of you that have read any of my other work you know its not about the story but the music that's included. So for me this was a great show to watch. It was a half hour long and had them singing at any point of the story. You could always guarantee that there would be music.

I don't remember a hearing their music on the radio though. It was always played on TV or by popping in a cassette. And yes I still have one of their albums on cassette. Now if I could just find it. I know I saw it recently. More to the point I know I listened to it recently.

Anyway a lot of the music on that cassette is also on this CD. And that is why It is on my Amazon wish list. Because I wanted it on CD. I then wanted it on my Amazon Cloud player so I could listen to it anytime. I sign onto a computer with access and permission to go onto the internet.

I have a few albums and songs that I have gotten this way. And now its now The Monkees turn to become part of my collection.With how much I have enjoyed them over the years its also time to share my thoughts and feeling. So that others can also enjoy their music and add this music to their collections.

One final thought to share on this album. That is the main reason I wold like it. The song is Shades of Gray. As I look back at the show I only remember hearing the song. Not the words. It was when I heard those words on my friends cassette that I wanted the album so many years ago. The reason I listened over and over and added the cassette to my collection and will soon be adding the album to my Cloud drive or getting the CD. I admit I am still up in the air on that one.

So even if you don't choose to add to your collection here please do think about The Monkees and the music they have shared with the world.

Thank you.

      I was a HUGE Monkees fan as a little girl, and like most little girls had a big crush on Davy Jones - I still listen to their music...they were so talented!!

      @mojoCNYartist: Shades of Gray is my favorite by them. And even if I said it before it bears repeating.

      I feel like I grew up with the Monkees. It's a shame people tend to down play their music, but I LOVED it. Thanks for the blast from the past.

      Love this band. I own a couple of cds from Rhino records. Shades of Grey is one of my faves by them.

      My favorite Monkee was Micky Dolenz. Every other little girl at the time was crazy over Davy, but I liked Micky. Their music was fun and I remember their television program on Saturday mornings. Remembering the Monkees brings back great memories of my childhood.

      I have an album called "Then and Now - The Best of the Monkees." I love it. I watched the show too. I even met Davy Jones once.

      I have a Greatest Hits Monkees album. I remember watching the show on a Saturday morning during the 70s in the UK, I'm sure they were re-runs. Somehow their songs got played on the radio too so I got to hear them both ways. You must get round to buying a modern version of the album so you can enjoy your favourite songs! ;0)
