Much like The Monkees’ early albums, GOOD TIMES! features tracks written specifically for the band by some of the music world’s most gifted songwriters, including Rivers Cuomo of Weezer (""She Makes Me Laugh""), Ben Gibbard of Death Cab For Cutie (""Me & Magdalena""), Andy Partridge of XTC (""You Bring The Summer""), as well as a song co-written by Noel Gallagher and Paul Weller (""Birth Of An Accidental Hipster"").

To help bring the 50th anniversary full circle, The Monkees completed songs that were originally recorded and written for the group during the 60s, including “Love To Love” by Neil Diamond and Harry Nilsson’s “Good Times.”
