Monkee Business - RIP Davy Jones - My Top 10 Monkees Songs
Please be sure to scroll down as there is a little more text as well as a place for your comments & remembrances of Davy Jones. Thank you for reading! :)
How Do You Best Remember 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
The Last Train to Clarksville
Pleasant Valley Sunday
Love is Only Sleeping
The Door Into Summer
You Just May Be the One
Steppin Stone (I'm Not Your)
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.
