Out today: “Daydream Believer”

If you told us we’d be releasing a cover of “Daydream Believer” at any point, well…

And yet here we are, this week’s cover from the *Smallpox* _Covers Album_ project is exactly that – Daniel Smith’s take on the Monkees’ classic. Dan says “For a minute, try to forget that The Monkees were the original corporate boy band. Forget that without the cheesy television show, they were just another cheap imitation of The Beatles. Forget that they didn’t write or record their own songs. Or even play their own instruments.”

“Fact is, if that song ever comes on the radio, and you don’t find yourself wearing a sudden smile, or compelled to tap your feet…or if you’re not singing along by the first chorus, then you probably don’t have a soul and you might want to look into that.”

You can get “Daydream Believer” for a buck, or you can get the whole _Covers Album_ project for $18 and we’ll upload a new cover every other week throughout the year – plus some extras (trust us, they’re starting to churn out new ones).
