In late November, voting commenced for the 16th Annual "Coolest Song of the Year" listener poll courtesy of the Sirius XM channel, Little Steven's Underground Garage. Micky Dolenz was nominated for his version of the Monkees classic, the Michael Nesmith-penned "Circle Sky," as heard in a brand new arrangement on Micky's 2021 solo album, Dolenz sings Nesmith.
A few hours ago, Micky shared the news on Facebook that "Circle Sky" has taken top honors in the poll:
