Mermaid Head

In the Monkees surrealist movie Head (1968), the theme is Porpoise song.  It was written by Gerry Goffin and Carole King.

The the song appears at the beginning and the end of the production, when the group's members jump from a bridge as a means to escape their lives. You then see them swimming with/being saved by mermaids!



You may also recognize the song from the 2001 movie Vanilla Sky.

  1. That is indeed a very surrealist video - I'll have to catch the whole movie now. Thanks.

  2. It's a pretty impressive movie if you've only seen their show. They were quite creative despite being a "manufactured" band. Honestly I don't think they're given enough credit.
