I wasn’t old enough to experience the Monkees the first time around, but these two clips from the Brady Bunch are forever etched into my memory.
Look how concerned Davy is when he hears about Marcia’s plight. Then again why doesn’t he just leave the recording booth and talk to her and save a trip to the Brady’s?
If it weren’t for Davy Jones than David Bowie would be Davey Jones and I bet the Brady’s woudn’t leave Marcia unsupervised in their living room with him.
Everyone my age knows that “how about the flip side” line almost as well as “Marcia Marcia Marcia”
I’ve written many times that the Monkees are no different than the Temptations and should be in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. So now you can add Davy’s name to Clarence Clemons’ for being snubbed until it was too late to honor them.
