The passing of Davy Jones really hits home and reminds me of my childhood and days gone by.  Oh how I remember as a kid watching the Monkees TV show and my sisters would have Davy’s pic on their bedroom walls. Talk about a simpler time and when TV was not filled with reality TV, but more upbeat and fun TV. Check out more of the life and times of Davy Jones. In 1989, the Monkees received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

The Monkees TV Show Theme

Hey, hey, we’re the monkees
And people say we monkey around,
But we’re too busy singing
To put anybody down.

You know that we want to
Do what we like to do,
The only time we get restless
Is around something new

Hey, hey, we’re the monkees
And people say we monkey around,
But we’re too busy singing
To put anybody down.

We’re just trying to be friendly
So come and Hey, hey, we’re the monkees
And people say we monkey around,
But we’re too busy singing
To put anybody down.

Farewell Day Jones, rest in Peace … you made all Monkeys believers … from the Monkees, “I’m a Believer”.

      I have been watching clips of the Monkees off and on all day…. I think I may have got some of my sense of humor from these guys when I watched the TV show when I was young. Some funny stuff on the TV show. They were all entertainers, especially Davy. RIP Davy.
