This week comedian and co-host of the SNLNerds Podcast, John Trumbull, joins us to decompose the 1968 hit song by the Monkees "Daydream Believer."
Katie had no idea what other song by the Monkees contained the word "Believer."
First-time guest John Trumbull joins us in our new podcast studio/ murder basement. Spoiler alert: he doesn't get murdered. John has a lot of Monkee-love (hubba hubba) so it is fitting that we have him over for this song. He has the hat! He brought a DVD! Thats a real fan right there.
This song was the beginning of the end for this fake-band-turned-tv-show-turned-real-band.
Find out how little Peter Tork contributed. Find out why Mike Nesmith is independently wealthy. Find out which non-comedian/ non-Green Lantern wrote this song.
Axl Rose stole his moves from Davy Jones.
Also, the Indigo Girls are a good band, but you may not be able to stay awake during their concert.
This is 3/4 of a good song, but we need more. Now you know how funky it can be.
