Album More of the Monkees. I’m a Believer Lyrics. I thought love was only true in fairy tales Meant for someone else but not for me Love was out to get me That's the way it seemed Disappointment haunted all my dreams. Then I saw her face, now I'm a believer Not a trace of doubt in my mind I'm in love, I'm a believer! I couldn't leave her if I tried. I thought love was more or less a givin' thing Seems the more I gave the less I got What's the use in tryin'? All you get is pain When I needed sunshine I got rain
The best of the '60s good-time pop songs and one of the most infectious singles ever recorded, "I'm a Believer" by the Monkees grooves along with a ragged accompaniment featuring handclaps and tambourine, fab electric piano solos, and a few well-timed, ink pauses just before the contagious, fervent chorus.

I thought love was only true in fairy tales Meant for someone else but not for me. Love was out to get me That's the way it seemed. Disappointment haunted all my dreams. Then I saw her face, now I'm a believer Not a trace of doubt in my mind. I'm in love, I'm a believer! I couldn't leave her if I tried. I thought love was more or less a given thing, Seems the more I gave the less I got. What's the use in tryin'? All you get is pain. When I needed sunshine I got rain.

That group, the Monkees, were modeled after the playful spirit of the Beatles’ movies. JA-95 While they fought to play their own songs, producers limited the Monkees to singing and brought in session musicians for the instruments. SF The show, which aired from 1966 to 1968, propelled the Monkees to the top of the charts with debut single Last Train to Clarksville. When publisher Don Kirshner was seeking a million-selling follow-up, he turned to Barry and Elle Greenwich, Diamond’s producers, after hearing Diamond’s top 10 hit Cherry Cherry on the radio.
The Monkees were the exact opposite. Two or three generations of musicians will have grown up watching their show on Saturday mornings, or in the summer holidays, thinking: "I want to be like them. They started with the Byrds-like jangle of Last Train to Clarksville in 1966, a US No 1, and then dominated the charts of 1967 with I'm a Believer, A Little Bit Me a Little Bit You, Alternate Title, Pleasant Valley Sunday and Daydream Believer. Within just little more than a year of their debut single, they had put out four albums. Before 1967 was out, they toyed with the idea of recording a whole album of Harry Nilsson songs (the tremendous Cuddly Toy was all that surfaced). On the Christmas special they sang Riu Chiu, an a capella piece in Spanish almost as creepy as Steeleye Span's Gaudete.
