This came up at the close of my show tonight and I realized that I hadn't really shared it with anyone yet!

So, I give you the first time "Song to the Siren" was performed by the man who wrote it, Tim Buckley, on the final episode of the TV show, The Monkees in 1968. Yes, you read that right.

Pat Boone was the first "official" recording of the song in 1970. It's not as nice, in my opinion...he kinda keelhauled it across the brass section.
