Good night, Sweet Davy

Sure, "Daydream Believer" is a better song and Davy Jones did a better job on those vocals. But when I was a little girl, I got all swoony hearing him sing about "the warm September wind, Babe."

Hearing of his passing mad me sad. I was never desperately in love with him, but he was one of the heart throbs that adorned my locker and wall and I spent so much time reading his stats (on this very album cover) that, to this day, whenever I'm asked my height, I always think, "5'2, just like Davy Jones."
