Davy Jones

One of His Final Recordings

3/2/2012 3:30 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF


0_43g92mh0_0_h59kgb7q
In the months leading to his death, Davy Jones recorded what would become one of his final songs -- for a children's television show -- and TMZ has obtained a clip.

The song -- recorded several months ago for a children's TV show called "Shushybye" -- contains  lyrics about wishing on a star, and traveling to some kind of dreamland where dreams are made.

Davy sings, "Here's my wish, my wish for what I want my dreams to be / The star will bring me to the dreamery / Just for me, just for me."

The song was scheduled to debut in May when the show premieres.

HE SOUNDS LIKE A CHIC... IN FACT, A CHIC WOULD SOUND BETTER SINGING IT. DUDE LIVED A LONG LIFE AND ACCOMPLISHED MOST OF WHAT HE WANTED. HE WAS WHAT, 66...?? WHO KNOWS HOW LONG HE WOULD'VE LIVED ANYWAY. MAYBE ANOTHER 2-3 OR 5YRS AND STILL KICK THE BUCKET?? THAT'S NOT LONG AT ALL WHICH IS JUST A BLINK OF AN EYE. #TRUTH!!

You could have picked a better picture TMZ. Not a pleasant picture to see of someone who has died.

The lyrics are "Here's my wish, my wish for what I want my dreams to be / The star will bring'ya to the dreamery / Just for me, just for me."

yeah, and a nice photo would show a bit of class for a change...

Somehow his passing is sadder on a plain old emotional level than those "stars" who will do anything on earth to keep "super" status and not fade away. I guess because he was worth something than just to a few "yes" folks and drug dealers. RIP Davy, right up until the end you had the voice of an angel.

I wasn't born until 76 and I still thought he was "dreamy". His voice has a special place in my heart....UP in heaven will God ask.."WILL THE REAL DAVEY JONES PLEASE STAND UP" And Davey will reply as always....."but I'am standing up".. It was a great show.

Every picture you put up on Davy is horrible? Why do you guys do that? He was a decent, talented man who never had any scandals or negative press. RIP Mr. Jones.
