"I Wanna Be Free" is a song written by Tommy Boyce and Bobby Hart that appears on the Monkees' debut album The Monkees. In contrast to the slow version sung by Davy Jones that appears on the album, a fast version featuring lead vocals by Micky Dolenz and Davy Jones was produced for use in the episode based on the pilot, "Here Come the Monkees".

While the song was originally released as an album-only track in the United States, an Australian single was released in May 1967 backed with "You Just May Be the One".
