A 50-Year Memory: Video for November

Three songs were #1 in November 1966. The month started with what may be a very historic record, the debut single of the made-for-TV pop group, The Monkees. Last Train to Clarksville was released in August and was #1 on November 5, 1966. It had that jingly pop-feel that attracted airplay. It had a general Beatle-esque style to it that also helped. It was featured seven times on the Monkees TV show, the most of any of their songs.

By the way, the other two #1 songs that November were:
  • Poor Side of Town by Johnny Rivers and
  • You Keep Me Hangin' On, 8th #1 song for The Supremes.
