Mickey muted Monkee music

1966 color shot Mickey muted Monkee music

[lastfm]Mickey Dolenz[/lastfm] of [lastfm]The Monkees[/lastfm] sang a lot of hits last night at Dodge, but here’s one that he has never sung in concert at any time – even though the song was played every week on the [lastfm]Monkees[/lastfm] television show.  What is it – and why would that be?That’s kind of a trick question.  Everyone remembers [lastfm]The Monkees[/lastfm] theme, which was played at the beginning of every show.  But in mid 60’s Italy, TV themes had to be sung in Italian.  So Mickey truged into the recording studio to record a version that would put the show in compliance with the law.  Check this out.

…and for good measure, do you remember this?
