Songs in Our Heart # 79

Daydream Believer (by the Monkees) (written by John Stewart; released October 1967) [There are people out there turning music into gold. John Stewart’s pop-slice of domestic life under stress was turned into a bubblegum dream, which is actually a production masterpiece, with muffled drums, slightly doctored piano, a lush use of strings, fine harmonies, and a soaring trumpet finale by Shorty Rogers. Anyone over forty-five is prone to get wobbly with nostalgia when Davy Jones trills “Cheer up, Sleepy Jean.”  As producer Chip Douglas reminds everyone, this number is “Seven-A!”  Seven-A, Shorty!!]
