They were the first band I was obsessed with, starting in about 4th grade, when I started watching the TV show. (This was around 1986.) I had every album on tape, including some bizarre compilations. Nowadays, I still like them but classify them as a guilty pleasure. Every year or so, I get a hankering to listen to them again and fill out my CD collection a little more. Mike was always my favorite Monkee, and I also think he was the most talented. Micky was a great singer, though.
