If you ever get the chance to hear Anne Murray's version of DAYDREAM BELIEVER, go for it. It's awesome ♥ ! It also got pulled off of YouTube for copyright infringement. Interesting, as it only depicted the album cover. Still, the sound quality was awesome--perhaps that's why it got pulled?
I'm creating myself feeling no one will be surprised that it was the Susan Boyle version I was thinking of, at first. The Monkees were great, but Ms Boyle's the latest to do something amazing with this song in the story I'm spinning.
Oh, & I'm so happy to have created this in my world: the wonderful band SHONEN KNIFE of Japan singing this wonderful song! :O)
I'm creating myself seeing permission to dream in this song.

Just ran into a cute literal version of the original Monkees version. (For those who don't know, The Monkees weren't a real band. They were a TV show and pretended to play instruments on that show. So, it's hard not ribbing them.)
Sunshine & Blessings,
