Aloha Friday #5


Welcome to Aloha Friday! It's a weekly blog event that started at An Island Life where I ask a simple question, answer it, then invite you to answer it also! 


I wasn't sure what I was going to post about until just now.. I've had Daydream Believer stuck in my head since I heard about Davy Jones' passing. I was driving to school when I first heard the news on the radio. It made me sad. I'm only 24. Obviously a little young for The Monkees. But when I was a little girl my dad listened to the oldies station all the time, it was the only music I ever listened to for years. I have a really vivid memory from when I was very young: I was playing in his garage while he worked, watching him sing along to Daydream Believer. I owe that memory to you Davy Jones.

This week's question: Are you a Monkees fan? 

Thanks for playing!


Look here for more Aloha Friday!

  1. I know who the Monkees were, but am I a fan? No, I don't think I ever was a fan.

  2. Well I watched the show reruns or something, they are from my mothers time though.

  3. They were before my time so I can't honestly say I'm a fan, since I'm not really a fan of the music from that time...(she says, ducking for cover). :)


    There's an App for that

  4. I love the monkees! I watched them in reruns in the 80's, and my kids have grown up listening to them. Davy will be missed!

  5. I find it interesting that some of you aren't fans of the Monkee's because it wasn't your time. I was born in the 80's yet I am still a fan of music that came before I was born. I am pretty sure we all like at least one Elivs and Beatles song.

  7. I remember listening to their music because my parents played it. Was not a huge fan, but thought they were fun to listen to.

  9. Actually, no. I really don't have any idea what songs they sing. However, I'm sure if I heard a song I would recognize it.
