Song of the Day: Last Train to Clarksville

October 15th, 2006

Performer: The Monkees

Composer: Tommy Boyce and Bobby Hart

Year: 1966

Why I like it: Gotta love that jangly guitar.

Trivia: Despite the bubble-gum tune, this is actually a song protesting the Vietnam War. The protagonist of the song has been drafted and wants to meet his girlfriend one last time before he is sent off to war.
