What Monkees songs did Neil Diamond write?

Four Monkees songs are attributed to Neil Diamond. They are "I'm a Believer," "Lookout, Here Comes Tomorrow," "A Little Bit Me, A Little Bit You," and "Love to Love." The first two appear on the Monkees' second album, More of the Monkees. "A Little Bit Me, A Little Bit You" was only released as a single and does not appear on any original album (but does appear on most compilations). "Love to Love" was not originally released and only appears on certain compilations and as the occasional "bonus material" on re-issue CDs. two books written on the Monkees shows that a fifth Neil Diamond song, "Black & Blue" was recorded by the Monkees (Davy Jones). This happens to be questionable. An e-mail written by the writer of the 2nd book, Andrew Sandoval, claims not to be recorded by the Monkees. First, Andrew Sandoval says in his book it was, then with this e-mail, it was not. Both books including Andrew Sandoval's book shows a master number. Now you know why its questionable.
