But it only made me try harder – still can’t do it without tripping up, but it just makes me love it more. As for Bowie & Crosby’s “Little Drummer boy [Peace on Earth] – I thought I was the only 1 who loved it. Love this song! Of ALL the Monkees’ songs this was the HARDEST to learn.

My mother always teased me about loving a group from her generation, but I watched the reruns religiously in the 80s whenever I was home sick or tried to stay home sick. Lol. These guys were awesome together. A chemistry not many groups had. Still love listening to them. When I was a kid, my father used to play this song every single xmas for us to hear together. Miss those days! Love this guys. Where’s the whole thing? Like others it is not Christmas without this song. All the voices blend beautifully (Micky’s is like silk). I also watch it to watch the faces as they sing. Davy Jones was my tween crush. Anyone have the name or number of this episode? I don’t remember it, but that was 50 years ago? Yikes. So sorry to hear of this, I loved him he was so much fun to watch on the Monkees. We have lost so many great performers over the years I’m sure he’s found a band of people to share music and fun with. RIP Peter Tork . Really great story,Pam! The Monkees are my favorite group! That was the episode with Bobby Sherman! *You should post this really great story over on the “Monkees Live Almanac” website! It would especially be appreciated over there.
