The Monkees had three number one hits during the height of their career. “Daydream Believer” was the last of the three and was released November 18, 1967. It would top The United States singles charts for 4 weeks.
“Daydream Believer” was their type of typical lightweight pop and while it may not have been essential to the history of rock ‘n’ roll, it was a pleasant listen at the time.
Many music fans today forget just how popular The Monkees were for a three year period. Their sales rivaled those of The Beatles. “Daydream Believer” remains one of their best remembered songs.
