I voted for The Monkees. Was a Big Fan of theirs when I was in my early teens.

Exclamation Re: The Monkees versus the Turtles!

I was in high school and took my music very seriously when The Monkees TV show was launched and the Monkees became the heart throbs of pubescent girls across North America. The Monkees therefore became my bête noire. It took me about fifteen years to get over it, but it's still very tough for me to take the Monkees seriously when compared to almost any other band from their era.

But then again the Turtles both then and now seem to be nothing more than a vehicle for Flo & Eddie's musical expression. And quite simply when I became familiar with their act some fifteen years ago, I didn't like it. "Stop you're clowning and just play the Turtles catalogue! And don't play the classics as a medley or interrupt them with asides. Play them through to the end!" was my reaction.

In any event I rank my favourites by these two bands as follows:

1. Happy Together - Turtles
2. I'm a Believer - Monkees
3. A Little Bit Me, a Little Bit You - Monkees
4. She'd Rather Be with Me - Turtles
5. You Know What I Mean - Turtles
6. You Showed Me - Turtles
7. Pleasant Valley Sunday - Monkees
8. It Ain't Me Babe - Turtles
9. Let Me Be - Turtles
10. Daydream Believer - Monkees
11. You Baby - Turtles
12. Last Train to Clarksville - Monkees

So the Turtles get my vote.
