I prefer to not repeat myself, but the death of Davey Jones's death warrants it.
Suffice to say that the Monkees had a huge impact on my childhood, and the music turned out to be far more durable that I ever would have thought.
This was brought home to me over the summer, when I was lucky enough to see them play one last time. Putting aside the fact that I was surrounded by a bunch of old people, it was a wonderful show, and I had a great time.
So I'll simply pay homage to the Monkees, and Davey in particular, by repeating an earlier post and pointing you to what I think are Davey's best performances with them.
First, an obvious one:
"A Little Bit Me, A Little Bit You"
Then a Neil Diamond song to which Davey unexpectedly brings the necessary testicular fortitude:
"Look Out Here Comes Tomorrow"
And my personal favorite, something that's sweet, but not sickly so:
"When Love Comes Knocking at Your Door"
RIP Davey. For a while there, along with the Beatles, you made us all wish we were British.
