Questions, But No Answers
Michael Nesmith Song (of the Monkees)
Pisces, Aquarius, Capricorn & Jones Ltd.
“Daily Nightly” is a song, written by Michael Nesmith of The Monkees, which appeared on their fourth album, Pisces, Aquarius, Capricorn & Jones Ltd., in 1967, and was featured in two second-season episodes of their television series, “A Fairy Tale” and “Monkees Blow Their Minds”.
The record was arguably the very first rock recording to feature the Moog synthesizer, programmed by musician Paul Beaver and played by Micky Dolenz, who was the third owner of a Moog.
The lyrics are a veiled commentary on the Sunset Strip curfew riots, which occurred in Hollywood, California in late 1966.
The night has gone and taken it’s infractions
While saddened eyes hope there will be a next one
Sahara signs look down upon a world that glitters glibly
And mountain sides put arms around
The unsuspecting city
Second hands that minds have slowed are moving even faster
Toward bringing down someone who’s found
The questions, but no answers.
