  1. Ahhhh some flashbacks to my youth here Patrick - I have a soft spot for the Monkees and watched their TV show religiously back in the good old days.

  2. Hey dear! Loved your post and allready followed your blog, i want invite you to visit and follow my blog back <3

  3. Fun post! Thanks for all the facts! Happy New Year!

  4. I'm just replaying the Monkees - I had teh biggest crush on Davy Jones when I was a teenager - & at that point, he was a grown man... which is weird - LOL - but I loved the Monkees so much

  5. Patrick,

    The most interesting of these is to learn Mark Wahlberg is Marky Mark. I'm not super familiar with the New Kids on the Block so this would be easy to slide right past me but still it was really cool to learn. I like Mark as an actor. He seems to have popped up in the movies over the past decade. It was a bit interesting to learn that Jimi Hendrix toured with The Monkees, too. Great trivia tidbits. Thanks for boogieing with the 4M crew. Have the happiest new year yet, my friend!

  6. You came up with some good trivia questions! Good picks!

  7. Interesting factoids! I knew 1, 5 and 6. Jimi paired with The Monkees was an odd coupling. Apparently, he was booed by the teenybopper audience. ☺

  8. Awesome trivia and tunes, Patrick! Loved them all! :) Happy New Year!
