Well then, from almost 5 years ago, this is one of the coolest "I was there, then" comments I've read!! 

As a doors fan, I've always thought they had the best fist track on a debut album...and the best last track, and the best first track on the 2nd side....hell...best debut album!!  Subjective as hell I know; still, something in the "anti-Establishment" that really stirs the rebel in me...and boy I would have had fun if I was born in 1950 (although I might not have made it into the 70s, either cuz of drugs....or Vietnam)

Long Live RP!!

I think I love you.  Who cares what others think?  You have one life only and it belongs to you alone.  Always know you are right about what YOU believe... no fault necessary, just esteem for team YOU.

Way overplayed.  I used to love the Doors, and I still like them. But aren't there plenty of Doors songs that RP could play which haven't been so heavily abused by rock and pop stations around the world?!?!

I like them, but they're just ok.

The DEVIL! Land sakes! 

Wow, and I thought I had it bad growing up in suburban MA. A lot of people in the area were Catholics but I think most people weren't all that devout.

Hi Bill, love this song. But I notice you always (?) play the "Ed Sullivan" version? Morrison is supposed to sing " She get HIGH", not "She get —". Just sayin.........
 
Yeah what's with THAT?  I don't need hand holding to listen to music, lets hear the original version!

Takes me back to my high school days, when I didn't appreciate this then.  I do now, though!

While certainly overplayed at this point (and lost some of it's shine for me) - one still cannot deny it's magnificence then and now!

Dear unclehud,

Thank you for this insight...there are always ground breakers for the next generation, huh.

Take care in those mountains :)
