The song was composed by John Stewart shortly before he left the Kingston Trio. Monkees producer Chip Douglas was friends with John Stewart and ran into him at a party in Hollywood. Douglas told Stewart that he was now producing the Monkees and asked if he had any songs that might work for the group. Stewart offered "Daydream Believer."
The band loved the song and recorded it with Davy Jones singing lead vocals. The single got to No.1 in the US charts in December 1967 and it remained there for four weeks. It peaked at number five in the UK Charts. Unfortunately, it was the Monkees' last number one hit in the U.S.
This is a one-off single rhythm complete with intro's/endings/fills & variations written in the style of the song for newer Ketron instruments. (Please note this is not a song file - often referred to as a midi file - that refers to and plays only one song. Subject to the chords you play on your instrument this style can be used for many numbers of which Daydream Believer is just one).
