The song "Last Train to Clarksville" was released as a single shortly before the release of the album and went to the top of the Billboard Hot 100 chart. It was the only hit single from the album. I'll Be True to You" was previously released as a single by the Hollies in January 1965 under the title "Yes I Will". Famously, the Monkees were not permitted by their management to function as a working band for this album. Eight of the original LP's twelve tracks feature one lone Monkee singing lead vocal over instrumentation and backing vocals recorded entirely by a group of session musicians which varies from song to song.
Second, and more importantly, Last Train To Clarksville was modeled on Paperback Writer - that fact being acknowledged by Hart. Someone mentioned it was also modeled on another Beatles song, Run For Your Life, though I don't hear any similarities between the two. It's slightly ironic that John Lennon himself dissed Run For Your Life as as hack job; that he had built his lyrics around a lyric in Elvis's song Baby Let's Play House (I'd rather see you dead little girl than to be with another man). Geert from Toronto, CanadaAs a Beatles fan and guitarist, the thing that struck me most the first time I heard 'Last Train To Clarksville' is that the intro. guitar riff (which is repeated throughout the song) is modeled on George Harrison's immortal riff from The Beatles' 1965 'Help!' single. If people are interested in hearing this riff, just go to ww. hebeatles.
Take the last train to Clarksville Now I must hang up the phone I can't hear you in this noisy railroad station all alone I'm feeling low Oh, no, no, no Oh, no, no, no. And I don't know if I'm ever coming home. BTW, post-Monkees, M. N. went on to record under the name, Michael Nesmith and the First National Band. He made an album or two, with a few mild hits, "Joanne," "(I Think I Will Fly Down to) Rio," and "Roll with the Ball. The album (or one of them) was titled, "From a Radio Engine to the Photon Wing. Didn't he also make a movie, or have another album title, that had "Parts" in the name?
