The Monkees – Porpoise Song (Theme From HEAD) 1968

On last night’s episode of Mad Men, this lush and psychedelic Monkees gem was played, perhaps symbolizing what is to come on the series.

“Porpoise Song” is played at both the beginning and end of the Monkees 1968 cult classic film HEAD, symbolizing the Monkees suicide from the trappings of teen idol-dom. I can’t wait to find out what it symbolizes for Don Draper and co.

The song was written and produced by Goffin & King, here is the demo version.
