Davy, You Will Always Be My First

RIP Davy Jones.

You were my first ever crush. The first guy who made my knees melt.

When you sang I Want to Be Free, I believed you were singing to me.

Oddly, you became a teen heartthrob the year before I was born, but I found you in afternoon Monkees reruns. You opened the door to the world of harmless, celebrity crushes.  Shaun Cassidy. Christopher Atkins. Rob Lowe. Boris Becker. So many others came after you.

But you were the first and the one I'll always remember.

You will be missed.
