Of all the years in the popstrological era, there is none -- not even during the depths of 1980s Reaganrock -- that goes as deeply to the root of a powerful and vaguely disappointing fact of human nature: that we seem to care less about truth than we do about pleasure. But artificial though the year's Dominant Star might have been, there was nothing even a little bit fake about their appeal. You would be hard-pressed to find an honest person who can claim immunity to the pop gems written for the Monkees by some of the greatest songwriting talents of their day, but is the fact that an army of talented professionals lifted the Monkees into the constellation Regifted proof of the Monkees' illegitimacy, or is it an illustration of the American genius for division of labor and mass production? Very different answers to that question are likely to be heard from the children of 1967, for their popstrological legacy marks them as a generation likely to struggle mightily with questions over their own legitimacy.
