Wanting to get a little feedback of something I'm thinking about doing, a Monkees project. Nothing too big, some songs from their latest album, 'Good Times!', some songs from the 60s.

 

Any thoughts on it?

You Bring the Summer and She Makes Me Laugh are excellent. I haven't heard the whole album yet but those would be great.

It's filler free! Possibly their best album!

She Makes Me Laugh would be spectacular! One of their best songs ever.

Just realized that you also said songs from the 60's. Daydream Believer would definitely be my first pick. It gets requested a ton on here too.

And now you have another person pushing the 'follow this topic' button!

Thanks for considering this one, what a great song! :D


If I appear to be a little "off center", pay it no mind.

It's just the nogrognophobia kicking in.................

I have this morbid, unreasonable fear that the rum's run dry! :D

Wow  - had no idea they had a new album !

 

Listened to the 2 new songs Fat Ha1p3rt mentioned and think they are great so those plus some of the classics would be great !

It's their best album as a whole in my opinion! Their debut is in 2nd place.

Would be a big consumers of 1960s Monkees and would probably pro guitar chart all of them

I've thought about it and I've made a list of songs I'm wanting to do sooner or later (some are half-way done):

 

Take a Giant Step

Saturday's Child

I Wanna Be Free (this is half-way done)

Papa Gene's Blues (drums would amazingly fun on this)

Steppin' Stone

Look Out (Here Comes Tomorrow)

All of Your Toys (my 2nd favorite song from the group, period)

Randy Scouse Git (title of this supposedly means "Horny, Liverpudlian Jerk" in the UK)

Goin' Down (Breaking Bad, anyone?)

The Door into Summer

Cuddly Toy (this one is just a possibility)

What Am I Doin' Hanging 'Round?

Valleri

D.W Washburn

It's Nice to Be With You

As We Go Along

Listen to the Band

Someday Man (this might be their most underrated song IMO)

Mommy and Daddy (original version with the dark lyrics)

That Was Then, This is Now

Heart and Soul

 

 

Long list. Long time before it's all done.

I'm getting a fair amount of tempo maps done for these songs. Still, since i can't find many Monkees MIDIs that are usable, this will take a LOT longer than usual.

 

Any comments?

+1 for Papa Gene's Blues (Love Nez's vocals on this)

+1 for Randy Scouse Git (Possibly my favorite Monkees tune!)

+1 for I'm Not Your Steppin' Stone

+1 for Look Out Here Comes Tomorrow

+1 for What am I Doin' Hangin' Round (Again, would love to do some Nez vocals)

+1 for Saturday's Child

 

+1 for anything Monkees, seriously! I know this is a pretty old thread, but here's hoping since we were fortunate enough to get Valleri a few days ago.
