Hey blog world! On Wednesday Davy Jones the lead singer of the band The Monkees passed away from a heart attack. He was 66. I’m using this post to remember him by. I can’t really remember much about the TV show “The Monkees” which is where the band originated from (in fact they weren’t even supposed to continue being a band after the show but they wanted to and got their way!) I do however remember some of the Monkees best songs which I’ll show you guys!
“Daydream Believer” http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2uohP4gk0wU&feature=fvst (by the way Davy is the one singing and playing the piano).
“I’m A Believer” http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XfuBREMXxts.
“Hey Hey We’re The Monkees” (this was the theme song to their TV show) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JEYNuU6Xtms.
“Pleasant Valley Sunday” http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sUzs5dlLrm0. (I can’t remember the name of the episode but this song was used once in “Family Guy”! )
Davy has also made 2 cameo appearances on TV shows (he may have done a few more but these are the only 2 that I know of). He played himself on “Sabrina The Teenage Witch” http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5KItFXZjZiY ( he was on the entire episode but I can’t seem to find a link to all of it.) Also he made an appearance as himself on Spongebob! He was in the episode “Spongebob VS The Big One” http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n86gOQhrGtA&list=FLGZxv79egMhykqVcny4DW5Q&index=3&feature=plpp_video! He’s a truly incredible artist and he surely will be missed.
