I'm A Believer by The Monkees

“I’ve changed! Yes. This morning, I received a note from a fellow curmudgeon & relic. I shall name no names...oh alright, it was Bilks @ErnieBilko ... ya’ got it outta’ me...man, you’re good. Anyhoo, it simply said “for God’s sake, let’s be optimistic”. So, there you have it. My epiphany is now in full schwing (just stand off to the left a bit & it’ll probably miss you). I reckon this Jam by The Brothers Mon’kee (no, don’t get celebratory, it’s not my last) reflects my new found optimism...that & a bottle of Mrs Trotter’s Tickling Tincture, which I have smothered over my extremities. My new religion, has made me examine my activities on the all new platforms, that beckon like an oasis in a desert, to a thirsty person who didn’t have Google maps on his mobile. From the end of TIMJ, I vow to… # Follow everyone slavishly, whether I like any of their shit, or not. # Post 63 songs at a time (this will be kept under review, as I actually only know 237 songs)....(yes, there’s more)...”

couldn't find a proper video for this song, but this one is even better   3

Who doesn't like a good love song every now and then? This took preference over the more modern Smash Mouth version due to my aversion to 90s and early 2000s pop-rock bands.   2
