Those were the days when I wasn't lumbered with the possibility of dire happenings such as religious conflict and global barbarism ...when a catchy song didn't include foul words...when I could watch Tv and not feel it was teaching our children to to go on rampages in schoolyards....when I could eat most things without fear of being poisoned with additives.

I loved "The Monkeys" and The Everley Brothers and all those happy swinging kids strumming guitars turning themselves in great groups for our entertainment entertainment, even if the Beatles song Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds was suggestive enough to .... as well as Pat Boone, Matt Munro.... Della Reese,Cilla Black....The Beatles and so on and so on.....ad infinitum. I Loved MGM Musicals I loved The Theatre, I loved The Opera....... and safe travel from everywhere to anywhere. Yes, those were the days! Who can find a time machine to take us all back there?

Vale.... Davy Jones you did us proud.

I wasn't the greatest fan of the Monkeys but I did like some of their songs and danced my heart out whenever they were on the box.

Like Maggs, I dream of some of those days and miss them, but life must go on. We can't stop time!

However, if you relish that era and enjoyed the music, then I have a link for you which will give you all the memories you can handle.

Go to: http://www.upchucky.com/ and enjoy the music of the years when you were young and perhaps 'innocent' !
