|The Monkees singles chronology|
"That Was Then, This Is Now" is a song written by Vance Brescia for his band The Mosquitos and recorded as the title track of their 1985 EP.
The Monkees (at that point consisting of Micky Dolenz and Peter Tork) covered the song for Arista Records, who released their recording as a single and on the compilation album Then & Now... The Best of The Monkees in June 1986. The song was a surprise hit, capitalizing on Monkees nostalgia at the time, reaching number 20 on the Billboard Hot 100 and number 24 on the adult contemporary chart. It has since been featured on several compilation albums by The Monkees.
