First Whitney, now Davy. Today I heard about the passing of Davy Jones, lead singer of the Monkees. Many a drunken student disco was sprinkled with a dash of 'Daydream Believer'. It was the anthem for the incoherent and uncoordinated. You could sway and scream to it and it was socially very acceptable. Everyone knew all the words without actually knowing the words. But for me the song has such a beautiful sentiment. Daydream Believer. We all need a bit of that kind of hope.
As for Whitney Houston, what a singer and what wonderful memories I have from her songs. I think I must have learned all the words to all the songs on her first album. I was that entranced. And regardless of her well-documented troubles, if she is going to be remembered for anything, at least remember the sentiments of her biggest hit: I Will Always Love You,
Thank you Davy and Whitney.
