C6 C6 loves loves Cherry Cherry

Today C6 and I were lunching at Kelly's in Saugus. Usually the music they play there is downright awful, but today, Neil Diamond's "Cherry Cherry" came on. C6 couldn't stay in his chair! He started dancing around like a boy on FIRE. What a great song! Jive for yourself:

HAHHrrrHAHR! - visit The Lovely Mrs. Davis, and see a clip from "Saving Silverman", featuring Diamonds in the Rough performing "Cherry Cherry".

All afternoon and evening as "Cherry Cherry" went through my head, the song kept morphing into The Monkees' "A Little Bit Me, A Little Bit You". They are so similar - the intro, rhythm, the backup vox... Then I recalled - duh - didn't Neil Diamond write a few Monkees songs? Yes. Yes he did.

I knew there was a reason I loved the Monkees aside from the fact that I wanted Mickey Dolenz to be my birth-father.
