I have to confess that, before this week, I hadn’t thought of this song for years. Now that Jones has died of a heart attack at age 66, I’ve heard it a half dozen times. Not surprising, since Jones and The Monkees touched a lot of hearts for quite a few folks a while back.
Monkees classics aside, one of Jones’ biggest solo singles was “Girl,” a song he performed on “The Brady Bunch” after the group disbanded. And through all the talk and nostalgia that his death inspired, I found myself with this pop tune in my head.
So, I’m putting it in your head in honor of the man who made Marsha Brady’s day way back when.
