Song of the Day – “New Music” Wednesday – “She Makes Me Laugh” – The Monkees

This is an eclectic album. That might be a good way of saying it’s all over the place. But it would have to be, wouldn’t it, considering that it includes at least one outtake that has the late Davy Jones singing lead (“Love to Love”, written by Neil Diamond).

Good Times! is produced by Adam Schlesinger of Fountains of Wayne and the movie music of That Thing You Do and Music and Lyrics. He’s brought together songs written by Diamond and Nilsson and even Boyce and Hart, and combined them with songs by Andy Partridge of XTC, Ben Gibbard of Death Cab for Cutie, and Rivers Cuomo of Weezer (this song). Schlesinger is the perfect choice to bring all this together, and it will probably be my summer soundtrack for 2016.
