“The #1 One Hits of the 60s” commercial with Mickey Dolenz


I remember seeing this really cheesy ad for a 4-record set of 1960s songs (starring Mickey Dolenz of the Monkees) when I was about 4 or 5 years old and asking for the album for either my birthday or Christmas. I remember playing it constantly and it was my first introduction to so-called pop music back in the day.

Unfortunately, the person who uploaded this vintage commercial decided to have some words in red font annoyingly travel across the screen while you’re watching the clip.

“The Girl I Knew Somewhere” – The Monkees


A great, underrated song by the Monkees that one rarely hears on oldies stations. This is accompanied by the original clip from the Monkees’ TV show, which, while cheesy, is nice to look at if you like looking at pretty women.  Forgive my knuckle-dragging on this one, but this was filmed during an era when women actually had curves and bodies that weren’t enhanced by chemicals or surgery.  And I must say, it’s rather nice.
