Add Genre. Add Styles. Add Moods. Add Themes. This Summer of Love tune is one of a mere handful of Monkees Hangin On (DJ Umile Vocal Mix) - The House Keepers - Hangin On to have been penned by Peter Tork.
He co-wrote the cut with his concurrent housemate, Joey Richardsand the pair turned out such an affable number that "For Pete's Sake" kicked off side two of the Monkees ' third long-player, 's Headquarters. It was also chosen as the closing credits theme for the second and final season of the Monkees ' weekly For Petes Sake - The Monkees - Daydream Believer / For Petes Sake / You May Just Be The One TV sitcom.
The optimism in the lyrics was an apt demonstration of Tork 's communal spirit and identification with the burgeoning counterculture. It was certainly a far cry from the typical three-chord power pop that became par for the course during Don Kirshner 's reign as musical director on their earlier albums.
Headquarters marked the beginning of the four actors' regime as masters of their collective domain. The first order of business for Micky Dolenz vocals, drumsDavy Jones vocals, percussionMichael Nesmith guitar, vocals, organand Tork vocals, bass, banjo, keyboards was to record the whole project using only themselves as the primary backing band.
As evidenced by 's fly-on-the-wall Headquarters Sessions box Life - Luciano - Messenger, that could at times be an arduous task.
However, as "For Pete's Sake" demonstrates, the results could likewise be surprisingly cohesive, if not arguably more organic than what the pros had provided on their earlier sides. Dolenz and Tork 's vocal harmonies during the bridge especially the line "And what we have to be is free"coupled with some powerful contributions from Nesmith on organ, are particularly worth noting, as the quartet takes charge and advantage of its newfound freedom.
