Music Monday - "She Makes Me Laugh" by The Monkees (2016)

The Monkees have a new song, and a new album coming out.  One of my friends sent me a link to this song and I have listened to it several times -- I absolutely love it.   "She Makes Me Laugh" was written by Rivers Cuomo from Weezer.  It is such a catchy little tune with a jangly bubblegum pop sound that is so much fun.   I also love the video, which has a unique and clever retro comic book motif.  Just watch and see!

I have always liked the Monkees.  I love all their retro songs, but have a special place in my heart for "Pleasant Valley Sunday" (which I think is a perfect pop song) and "Steppin' Stone."

I'd love to hear from you in the comments. What do you think of this new Monkees tune? Do you have a favorite of their songs?
