How Do You Best Remember Davy Jones

Davy Jones

I did not grow up in the era of Davy Jones crazedness, but I remember watching Monkees re-runs -- enamored with the simplicity of storyline, loyalty of friendship, purity of thought. With slap stick wit injected into a society uncomplicated by diminishing lines of morality, ethics - a comic sense that would go unappreciated in contemporary entertainment - you couldn't help but feel happy after watching an episode or five. To me, the Monkees were the original Fab Four ;) .

I am not familiar with Davy Jones' life history, only with the Monkees. I am certain there will be no lack of history, blogs, and rememberances written by much more qualified friends and loved ones. But, in his honor, and in memory of the association of his name with my adolescence, I offer these videos. Roll film.

Here We Come "Hey Hey We're the Monkees"

1966 - I'm A Believer

Daydream Believer

The Last Train to Clarksville

Valleri

Pleasant Valley Sunday

Love is Only Sleeping

The Door Into Summer

You Just May Be the One

Steppin Stone (I'm Not Your)

No Time

Two More for the Journey

Davy Jones has left the season of time, and is in eternity. Here's one more, "No Time".

Admittedly, this song has somewhat of a Dave Clark Five sound...

And, thank you, "Dottie", your comment prompted me to find "Shades of Gray" ... how appropriate the main character is Davy Jones in the video and that the real Davy Jones now leaves a much troubled world behind...

Shades of Gray

Davy Jones Solo

Did you know David Jones had an album pre-Monkees? You'll recognize the lyrics, but perhaps not the rendition.

I've also included a title from his solo project from the 70s.

It Ain't Me Babe

Look At Me

Did you know Davy Jones had a Solo Album before joining The Monkees?

I too remember the Monkees from reruns. Daydream believer was one of my favorite songs, and this day just reminds me of Shades of Gray. RIP, Davey.

Such a sad day. I think my crush on Davy started when I was three, watching Saturday morning reruns of The Monkees. I was interested to find a clip of him on the Ed Sullivan Show as the Artful Dodger in the original Broadway production of "Oliver!"--it was the same night that the Beatles made their first appearance on the show! He will be dearly missed.

I am the number 1 Monkees Fan since 1966 up today and I have the largest collection of LPs, EPs, CDs, DVDs, that I've benn able to find. Davy's death was one of the worst news that I have received for long time.

So sad, you still imagine at least I do, that my youthful loves remained at that age, not old enough to die of a heart attack - RIP Davy.
