Hi Tom, 

We haven't done 'Elenore', but I love it. The Turtles always rate a mention. We have played 'Outside Chance' and 'She'd Rather Be With Me'. 

The Intermission and End of Show playlists include 'Happy Together' and, you might be happy to know, 'Time Won't Let Me' (The Outsiders). 

We haven't done 'Gloria' either, but we did play the Them track in our trivia quiz, where the audience has to name the song and the artist, last December. 

I gave the winner the microphone and he sang the chorus superbly with much gusto. A favourite Blueboarder moment!

Looks like the ladies have left the building (or board) and we shall put their marks in the books as follows:

Elenore was the winner by a nice margin. The other three all in a somewhat tight race. Gloria in second, with the other gals on her heels. Pamela Jean and Valleri ended in a cat fight, but Pamela Jean had one more gold so she runs away with third, leaving poor Valleri in the dust.

67 GOLD - Elenore (12G, 5S, 1B, 2T)

49 SILVER - Gloria (3G, 8S, 4B, 5T)

42 BRONZE - Pamela Jean (3G, 2S, 9B, 6T)

42 TIN - Valleri (2G, 5S, 6B, 7T)

200 total - 20 voters

Thanks for all your interaction on my week. I always learn so much from everyone and enjoy the videos that I have sometimes long forgotten or never encountered.

Well done on your first week in the chair, Debbie.

Congrats on your hosting and the close scores.


It was the sixth entry for the Turtles.

A live version of ‘Elenore’ had been previously used, winning a Bronze in Week 17 of Season III (t Bedford).

Their record:

It Ain’t Me, Babe (a Tin in Week 14 of Season II, 1st in Tin Play-Off - Michael F. Becher),
The Story of Rock and Roll (a Bronze in Week 15 of Season II - Tom Tobben), 
Earth Anthem (a Gold in Week 10 of Season III - Tom Tobben),
Elenore (live) (a Bronze in Week 17 of Season III - t Bedford),
Let Me Be (a Bronze in Week 20 of Season IV - t Bedford),
Elenore (a Gold in Week 30 of Season VIII - dkmh)


It was the second appearance for Them.

‘Here Comes the Night’ won a Gold in Week 17 of Season VII (t Bedford).

Van Morrison, as a solo act, has appeared eight times in the Battle.

His entries have been:

Brown-Eyed Girl (a Gold in Season I - smilinjeanie),
Moondance (a Silver in Season I - Paul Adsett),
Natalia (a Silver in Season I - Joy B),
Have I Told You Lately? (a Silver in Season III - Cindy Hood),
Madame George (live) (a Bronze in Season V - paul g adsett),
Bein' Green (a Gold in Season VI - paul g adsett),
Into the Mystic (a Gold in Season VI - Lee Marshall),
Full Force Gale (live) (a Bronze in Season VI - Tom Tobben)

A classic polariser, he is yet to feature in play-offs.


‘Pamela Jean’ had never featured in a Battle before. ‘Car Crazy Cutie’ is yet to.


It was the eighth entry and second Tin for the Monkees.

Their record:

I'm a Believer (a Bronze in Week 9 of Season I, 6th in Bronze Play-Off - Pete Simpson),
Pleasant Valley Sunday (a Silver in Week 40 of Season II - Teenage Symphony),
You're So Good to Me (a Tin in Week 41 of Season III - Kevin Witts),
Daydream Believer (a Bronze in Week 2 of Season IV - Cindy Hood),
Zilch (a Bronze in Week 7 of Season IV - Teenage Symphony),
Last Train to Clarksville (a Gold in Week 40 of Season VI - Lisa G/TS),
Randy Scouse Git (a Gold in Week 22 of Season VII - Tom Tobben),
Valleri (remix) (a Tin in Week 30 of Season VIII - dkmh)


‘Elenore’ has the equal 5th highest points for a Gold so far this season but just the 10th highest percentage (33.50). The two Tins it received, from Al and David, have probably put it out of play-off contention.

‘Valleri’, with the 4th highest points for a Tin and 4th highest percentage (21.00), looks likely to be the Monkees’ second play-off song ever.

[QUOTE=Larry Franz]From Brad Elliott:

Tin: Shouldn't they have been called The Mon-keys so it would have been clearer that they were supposed to be like The Beat-les? We all thought they were merely a corporate cartoon, a way to kill 30 minutes every week, sucking up valuable radio airtime while Davy drove the little girls wild. I don't know when the revisionism began, but people began to appreciate them as the years passed. If I were a serious person, I'd appreciate them too. But my feeling is still pretty much: To hell with them!

Larry, if you haven't seen the Monkees' movie Head, you might like it.  Bizarre, hard to describe.  The songs aren't particularly memorable, but the movie is.

Me for one.  If I had the choice of never-ever having another flu shot...OR...never hearing a Monkees song/seing a Monkees TV show [or movie] EVER again... ... ...
I'd go with HAVING the flu shot.

Ya...it was all 'innocent' fun...for a few minutes...but the songs are really ALL disposable.  I guess my never having had the chance to be a pre-teen girl factors into the equation too but reality IS, after all,  reality.  [and THEY weren't]

I dunno.  I like them better than Zeppelin and ...Zappa.  and definitely better than U2.  they did a lot of songs to make the junior high students swoon.  Well, so did ACDC and Journey. 

I think this is an example of an honest difference of opinion...

Yup.  We all like different genres, styles, and even if it's the same artist...DIFFERENT songs and lps.  So it goes.  It's better THIS way.  More Led Zep for me...more Monkees for you.  Everybody wins John.

I like the Monkees TV show and a few songs but that's about it. I wasn't the kind of preteen who had a tendency to swoon, so that's not really a factor for me. I love Zeppelin and I hate U2.
