The Monkees were a highly popular late 1960s made-for-TV rock band with many Top 40 hits. They also had numerous noncharting songs from their 58 episodes of "The Monkees" from 1966-1968 that included "Mary, Mary."
After the group disbanded, Michael Nesmith had a Top 40 hit in 1970 with "Joanne." Davy Jones recorded several songs that were minor hits and also made an appearance on the Brady Bunch singing "Girl." The Monkees reformed in 1986 (without Nesmith) and charted in 1987 with "Heart And Soul." They reformed again in 1996, this time with all the original band members.
