Sept. 12, 2016 will mark the 50th anniversary of when The Monkees television show premiered on NBC.
I can’t help but wonder if the song “Shades of Gray”–which was written in 1965 by songwriters (and real-life spouses) Barry Mann and Cynthia Weil and was recorded in 1967 by the band The Monkees for their second album Headquarters–played an inspiration to the new film Fifty Shades of Grey. I really think this song should have been added to the film’s soundtrack. 😉
Fifty Shades of Grey is now playing in theaters nationwide.
