"Porpoise Song" (1968)
Micky Dolenz: The movie Head was crated by Bob Rafelson, Bert Schneider and Jack Nicholson. It wasn't so much about the deconstruction of the Monkees, but it was using the deconstruction of the Monkees as metaphor for the deconstruction of the Hollywood film industry. I think it was restricted to 17 and over. Many of our fans couldn't even get in. From a commercial perspective, it was totally the wrong movie to make. But we didn't want to make a 90-minute episode of the Monkees TV show. Also, these were the guys that were going to go off and make Easy Rider and Five Easy Pieces. They had an opportunity to really stretch here. "Porpoise Song" is one of my favorite songs to sing. It's sort of the theme of the movie.
