I remember getting this album as a kid and being disappointed that "(Theme From) The Monkees" wasn't the version that opened the TV show. In fact, the last verse of the TV version is even left off the LP version, as is the cold ending. They should have figured out a way do this better. Maybe they could have opened the album with the short theme and closed with the longer version. Maybe they could have put the TV version out as a B-Side. It wasn't until decades later that you could actually buy the TV version on disc. I didn't rate this because I don't like giving ratings to songs. What I like varies according to my mood. However, the 4-year-old version of me rated the TV version a 5/5.
