SLEEPY JEAN IS VERY SAD, R.I.P. DAVY JONES

Yes I have this song on my iPod and this one and this one

 

Sad news today hearing that Davy Jones of The Monkees has passed away of a heart attack at the age of 66. In 1966 I was 8 years old when The Monkees were formed as a band and a TV show, and I was a huge fan. Back then Top 40 radio was the rage and WABC with their All American’s and WMCA “Good Guys” (I’ve talked about this before but I wanted one of those yellow Good Guy sweatshirts soooooooo badly) bringing a an explosion of music from the Beatles, Stones and the British Invasion and James Brown, The Supremes with Motown, then here come four prefabricate guys from central casting, thrown together with a few pop songs and guess what? They were a huge success.

  1. I have all three of those songs on my ipod, as well as “I’m a Believer”. They were the innovators of MTV, that’s essentially what the series was. The music was acceptable (some of it anyway), the show was funny in a campy way. The originals were a little before my time, but I remember watching them as reruns in the 70s.

    It hurts when you start losing stars from your childhood. RIP, Davey.

  2. Yep, I was a 70′s re-run watcher too. But that was one of my favorite shows. I still sing the opening today. “Here We Come, Walking Down the Street….” Those guys rocked. Be well Davey. He was one of the good guys.
