Ok, Jim Croche got me completely on a roll this afternoon. I've been really battling some internal things that I may or may not ever get around to writing about, but this afternoon I was lifted out of them by this music.
The Monkees played a huge role in my life from about age 10 until at least 19 and beyond. (For the record, no, I'm not that old; I first discovered them on re-runs in 1978. I was still a fetus during the Summer of Love.) Michael Nesmith was my alter ego, and nearly everything about them speaks to me of a time when music carried me far above anything that troubled me, and really led me to the love of God Himself.
So, enjoy some with me!
I watched this and got as swooney as Rose Marie!
This video is kind of lousy, but You Just May Be the One is one of my fav Mike songs.
This is a gorgeous song about the Immaculate Conception of Mary. And then they introduce the crew of the show.
I read the lyrics of this song for a poetry class I took in high school. Love the clothes. Does my love for this song say something about me?!
I could go on and on. It is hard to put into words what this music conveys to me. I think I love it more the older I get. Well, thanks for listening with me!
