FTW Wednesday: RIP Davy Jones

29 Feb


Back in the day, Manda and I were huge Monkeemaniacs.  Huge.  While other girls were swooning over The Backstreet Boys, we went to see The Monkees in concert.  One Halloween Manda dressed up like Micky Dolenz and I dressed up like Mike Nesmith (complete with sideburns).  I can still recite the lyrics to Goin’ Down.  So when I heard Davy Jones died this morning via a high school friend posting the sad news on my wall, it brought back waves of nostalgia for my junior high years.  I’ve been a little hesitant to watch the shows or listen to the music as an adult since I’m sure it won’t live up to my adoration, but for Davy’s sake, I think I’ll make an exception this Wednesday.

Don’t you just love the groovy Nehru shirts?
