Where Crime Writers Talk About Life, Work, and Murder
Sigh.Davy was my first crush. I had Monkee shades (pink square sunglasses), a Monkee shirt, and posters torn from Tiger Beat magazine all over my bedroom walls. My cousin and I spent an entire summer talking in British accents. Julia Spencer-Fleming had the best tweet yesterday: Are we sure the boys aren't faking Davy's death to catch an evil mortician who is conning Peter's great-aunt? #whyisntlifeliketheMONKEES
I remember "banana" flavored Monkee bubble gum that came with cards you collected.If you flipped them over they were a puzzle. LOLWow. How entertainment has changed.susan meier
Davy was my first crush too! Remember the "stars" twinkling in his eyes whenever he would meet a girl he liked? Then stars would twinkle back from her eyes? When I was thirteen, I dreamed that he and I met and our eyes "twinkled" at each other. That dream still makes me smile! Cuddly Toy was my favorite song, Davy sang. My girlfriends and I would dance like Davy whenever he sang that at the end of the show.A few years later, I learned to play it on play guitar.
Wow, the Monkees, in their heyday, outsold the Beatles and the Rolling Stones combined? That's an incredible fact I had not known before I saw this video.One of my girlfriends had an insane crush on the Monkees, especially DJ. We would dance like fools in her basement, but when the other girl and I left, she would still be down there, mooning around over him. It was pretty funny, looking back. All of my crushes were real boys, except for the one I had for Tony Curtis. Swoon. LOL
I did see "The Monkees" until they were in syndication in the early 80s. But I still had a crush on Davy Jones. =)
Oh, Joyce, Tiger Beat! And the accents, too. Such fun memories.Susan, you're absolutely right!
Yes, Darcy, those twinkles! I'm not remembering Cuddly Toy. Off to Google to check it out...

Karen, I was surprised by that, too. Outselling the Beatles and the Stones? Wow.LOL, Mary. That counts, too!
I remember the Monkeys on TV too. I watched with my children! (I'm WAAAAAY over 50.)
Ah, Davy. Love you still.
LOL, Norma. Great to see you here!You've got that right, Nancy.
