Cheer Up! - Daydream Believer - Netflix
“Daydream Believer” is a song composed by John Stewart shortly before he left the Kingston Trio. It was originally recorded by The Monkees, with Davy Jones singing lead vocals. The single hit the number one spot on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 chart in December 1967, remaining there for four weeks, and peaked at number five in the UK Singles Chart. It was the Monkees' last number one hit in the U.S. In 1979, “Daydream Believer” was recorded by Canadian singer Anne Murray, whose version reached number three on the U.S. country singles chart and number 12 on the Billboard Hot 100. The song has been recorded by many others, including a 1971 version by John Stewart himself. Stewart said that it was supposed to be the third in a trilogy of songs about suburban life. Married couples start out in an idealistic haze, but after a few years it wears off, and each sees the other as they really are. This is, supposedly, when genuine love is proven.
