Song of the Day: The Monkees - Porpoise Song

I know two things about The Monkees - that they were basically manufactured for a TV show, and that David Bowie changed his name from David Jones to Bowie because he didn't want to share a name with Davey Jones of The Monkees.

In other words, I don't know anything. So when I heard this song off on the Vanilla Sky soundtrack 10 years ago, it didn't fit with what I thought The Monkees sounded like (probably based solely on "I'm a Believer"). It's a pretty interesting song, and I've finally remembered that I owe The Monkees another listen. Can anyone recommend a good starting point?
