Hey hey we're the Monkees!

(No, this isn't a post about Congress....)

"The Monkees Celebrate 40 Years With Reissues Of First Two Albums As Limited, Double-Disc Editions"

Now, my sister had a Monkees album - an actual vinyl record, ya know - and when I was a kid I would listen to it all the time...right along with The Partridge Family album she had.

Anyway, I was probably the only kid my age who knew all the words to the theme song, and I was always running around singing "Gonna Buy Me A Dog."

A word of caution, though: do not, under any circumstances, watch the Monkees movie Head. Well, not unless you're under the influence of some groovy cigarettes.

So in honor of The Monkees' 40th anniversary, I'm going to dig out my box set (yes, I've got a box set, shut up) and groove to "I'm Not Your Steppin' Stone." And then maybe I'll find that Partridge Family CD....and that Brady Bunch stuff...

A guy I was friends with in high school gave me his Monkee's 45's. He was going to give them to another girl (who was also a friend of mine) but he was made at her. Lucky me! :)
