Daddy’s Song by The Monkees.

Posted on the 29 March 2012 by Melodicwisdom

Today marks one month since Davy Jones passed away. The reality of it is finally sinking in, though the sadness will never change. I thought about Davy’s career in The Monkees and a lot of us remember him for his singing, Daydream Believer, and his teen idol status in the 60′s. But another talent he had isn’t mentioned as often – dancing. Today’s video showcases that.

Daddy’s Song was released in December of 1968 from the album, Head, the soundtrack for The Monkees movie of the same name. It was written by Harry Nillson, who also wrote other songs for the band including Cuddly Toy.

The video above is taken right from the movie. Singer Toni Basil (famous for the 1982 track, Mickey) can be seen dancing with him. Be sure to watch closely at Davy’s feet, it’s amazing how light his steps are!

One of the things I loved about this video is the black & white contrast in the backgrounds/their outfits. I think that’s pretty awesome for the late 1960′s.
