Geez gang...this is the second week in a row that I've been late posting my Set. But I do go back to work on Monday, so that should get me back in rhythm.
Today let us celebrate the Tommys and Bobbys of rock and roll.
Why, you ask?
Because, I say.
Oh...I realize that the track I chose from Bobby Darin doesn't fit the up tempo of the others in the Set. It is, however, my favorite Bobby Darin vocal. And...The Monkees tune was written by a Tommy and a Bobby (scroll down below the player for the details).
