Stop in, look around, have a drink and crank some tunes. I'll be posting some songs ripped from records, some out of print and hard to find stuff, some songs by artists you should be listening to, and a few mixes here and there.

Hey Hey It's The Monkees Christmas! (Repost)

Hi everyone. Let's get this party started shall we? I'd first like to do a re-post. The Monkees' soundbytes I posted last Christmas sounded a little hollow... I don't know what happened, but they didn't sound as good as the other show's soundbytes. Being how this is one of my favorite Christmas shows, I just had to do them over. That and the fact that my brother was making a Monkees Christmas Mix and he wanted them to sound better... Anywho... Below is the original post with the eleven new sounds. I also put them in a play list so the page doesn't have to load all of those different players.


Today's soundbytes are from The Monkees episode creatively name The Christmas Show. It's about the prefab four being hired to watch young Butch Patrick (Eddie Munster) over the holidays. The little brat doesn't believe in Christmas spirit and the boys do everything they can to help him find it. They have no luck at all until they realize they have only shown him superficial things and not peace and love. This one is for all you closet Monkees fans out there. I know there's a lot of us. They were a huge influence on The Beatles you know...

The Christmas Show - Season 2, Episode 15. Aired: December 25, 1967

Here is the cover we made for our Monkees Christmas mix. Turned out pretty cool. What do you think? Feel free to use it if you make your own Monkees Christmas Mix or send me a message and I'll get you a higher resolution version.

Brainwerks - Thanks yet again for all your efforts and all the fantastic soundbites and tunes. I've been lucky enough to get some of your great creations over the last few years. Now, I'm desperately trying to figure out how to get a copy of the Monkees file you created, as well as the Three Stooges Christmas soundbites. Any help in getting these would be appreciated. Happy holidays.

What an amazing work!! The cover is fantastic. Congratulations.
Every year my wife and me make together an "alternative" Xmas compilation for all our friends and relatives and your blog is one of the first I use to check to get some stuff.
Thanks again.
