Missing You Davy Jones!

I'll be missing, Davy Jones of The Monkees, who sang "I Wanna Be Free" which became the top in American single chart of 1967 for seven weeks. And it was my favorite in the late '60s, which I used to sing it with my high school peer group (barkada).

Davy Jones
Davy Jones, the lead vocalist of the American pop rock group called The Monkees, passed away on February 29, 2012 of a heart attack at the age of 66.

His death was announced in his official website: DavyJones.Net

"It is with the deepest sadness that Davy's family has announced that he passed away of February 29th. Jessica has lost a devoted husband, and Talia, Sarah, Jessica, and Annabel a loving father, while Harrison, Lauren, and Phoenix have lost a proud grandfather. His sisters in England--Hazel, Beryl, and Lynda--have lost their brother...

"He has gone on a few short steps ahead/ Faith looks beyond this time of grief and pain/ Love still abides, and we shall meet again."

To listen to this song, "I Wanna Be Free", play the player below and sing along by following the lyrics.

                          I wanna be free,
                          Like the bluebirds flying by me
                          Like the waves out on the blue sea
                          If your love has to tie me, don't try me,
                          Say good-bye

                          I wanna be free,
                          Don't say you love me say you like me,
                          But when I need you beside me,
                          Stay close enough to guide me, confide in

                          I wanna hold your hand
                          Walk along the sand
                          Laughing in the sun,
                          Always having fun
                          Doing all those things
                          Without any strings
                          To tie me down

                          I wanna be free,
                          Like the warm September wind, babe,
                          Say you'll always be my friend, babe,
                          We can make it to the end, babe,
                          Again, babe, I gotta say.

                          I wanna be free
                          I wanna be free
                          I wanna be free

Davy Jones was the lead vocalist of The Monkees in the '60s.

The Monkees
The Monkees is one of my favorite groups of singers along with The Beatles, Herman Hermits, Gary Lewis and the Playboys, The Hollies, among others.

I just learned later that Davy Jones was married to three women. First was Linda Haines in 1968 with two daughters: Talia Elizabeth and Sarah Lee. Their marriage ended in 1975. He married another woman, Anita Pollinger in 1981. They got two daughters: Jessica Lillian and Annabel Charlotte. They divorced in 1996. And for the 3rd time, he married Jessica Pacheco in 2009 until his death on February 29, 2012.

The songs which I like most aside from "I Wanna Be Free" is Daydream Believer. Other songs which became popular in our time were "Last Train to Clarksville", their first single released in August 1966, "I'm a Believer", "(I'm Not Your) Steppin' Stone", "A Little Bit Me, a Little Bit You", "PLeasant Valley Sunday" and "Daydream Believer".

The Monkees were an American pop rock group which is composed of Micky Dolenz, Michael Nesmith, Peter Tork, and Davy Jones, Englishman.

They were popular in 1966 to 1968. Their TV show was discontinued in 1968. But the band continued to record music till 1970.

Some of their noted achievements were:
  • First music artist to win two Emmy Awards
  • One of the first artists achieving number-one in the United States and United Kingdom simultaneously
  • Four No. 1 albums in a one-year span
  • No. 1 spot on the Billboard album chart for 31 consecutive weeks, 37 weeks total
  • The longest stay at No. 1 for a debut record album until 1982 when Men AT work's debut record album Business As Usual broke that record
  • Hollywood Walk of fame in July 1989

David Jones started his public exposure as an actor when he was till a kid. As a musician, he leads the vocal, plays the tambourine, guitar and drum kit in the group.

My deepest sympathy and condolence to his surviving spouse and family.

Love You Forever
