If you’ve ever sung “Hey, Hey, We’re the Monkees”, you’ve got songwriter Bobby Hart to thank. This titan of rock ‘n’ roll shares his intensely personal tale as one of America’s leading hit makers in PSYCHEDELIC BUBBLE GUM: Boyce & Hart, The Monkees, and Turning Mayhem into Miracles, out now.
As half of the fabulously successful team of Boyce & Hart, Bobby helped create the sound of America’s answer to the British invasion, allowing the Monkees to outsell the Beatles and the Rolling Stones combined in 1967. That year, Boyce & Hart embarked on successful careers as recording artists and performers, in their own right. They charted five hit records including the top ten, “I Wonder What She’s Doing Tonight”. But, this wasn’t the beginning or the end of Bobby’s contributions to America’s Top Forty.
