It's nice to know they appeal to somebody.

Yeah, nursecindy! I agree. But unfortunately these monkeys can't or wont't buy CDs, or concert tickets.

My conclusion:

Some scientists have WAY TOO MUCH time on their hands.

Instead of doing something useful, they try to find ways to validate their own (warped) tastes.

Monkeys not impressed with Monkees? Dung flinging music.

Who let the monkeys into the Imax?

There is a great, but subtle, difference between "a soothing effect" and stunned.

Give the monkeys guitars and drums and watch the fun.

From what I heard, if given guitars and drums, the Monkees would have just stared and wondered.
Some good music came out of that "group", anyway.

He said human babies are also able to interpret tone and pitch.

"We use legato - long tones - with babies to calm them. We use staccato to order them to stop," he said.

We order babies to stop? Stop spittin up? Stop pooping? Who IS this person?

Conversely, Metallica are Monkees fans.
