Tommy James : A lot of people thought I was nuts to put out a record like Mony Mony in the middle of the Vietnam War. How dare somebody come out with a dance record at a time when things were that serious! My feeling was, hey, man, there's enough garbage on the news every night. Who needs to be depressed any more? If music can't make you feel good, then what's it for? We literally had a party on top of a very simple track. (sleeve note to 2007 compilation CD, Anthology)
