    The audio to the first link I posted to Daydream Believer didn’t work.

    This one does: Watch Davy dance away. Anyone know the name of the dance ? Was it called the Skate?

    Wow! I am so excited to see that there are people here who remember the Monkees. I use to have a crush on Mickey and my best friend on Davy. I was expecting to see a bunch of “who is he” comments. Boy, you guys rock! We are blessed to have grew up during the best tv and music era.

    R.I.P Davy Jones
    I used to get so happy when they would air at least 3 The Monkees
    episodes back to back when i was a kid.
    He made appearances in everything from The Brady Bunch to Scooby-Doo
    He always put a smile on my face.
