I agree!  BillG could easily play, say, "5 to 1" which is as relevant now as it was back in the day, and seems to fit into many of the playlist themes here.  Or the bizarre and funky final and title track to "The Soft Parade" which is one of my favs and I can't imagine it ever played on FM radio.  Nonetheless, I'll enjoy these tunes as they roll through, and even more so now since we're blessed with FLAC (sorry browser listeners.)

And remember:  They got the guns but WE have the numbers!

PEACE and Long Live RP!!

Brillliant track, and brilliant to have it follow Satie's Gymnopodie. Thanks Bill and Rebecca!

Such an ominous and foretelling final track on the final album.  And even without that, this tune is great as one bookend of The Doors' 6 disc catalog with Break on Through (to the other side) on the other end.  

And I am REALLY glad that there are so many haters; I've never liked liking what others like, and it gives me solace to think I'm still out here dancing to my own drummer (or however that saying goes) - I say Long Live RP and PEACE!!

I came here with PSD and get only SILENCE.

But of course, anyone knows that software glitches have nothing to do with the quality of music.

Therefore I give Riders on the Storm a BIG FAT 10!

Amazing how some attempt to come across as 'expert' by trotting out a precis based on nothing more than snobbery.

Music, as so succinctly defined by mojcamojca77's comment, is very much subjective and given this, will appeal or repel each individual equally.

Perhaps arnimf could see their way fit to contemplate that "Rider's On The Storm" means more to some than whether the vocalist can bust out beyond one octave?

Romantic Sentimentality? Isn't that precisely one type of emotion that music is supposed to invoke? In exactly the same way that Tchaikovsky's 1812 Overture stirs the soul?

Take a deep breath arnimf and breath the joy that music of all types brings to ....... all types.

I gave it a 3 also, and it felt sacrilegious. Then I remembered I'm an atheist.

The classically trained keyboard player, who also wrote the repeating bass lines, surely couldn't play an instrument.

Perhaps the physical traits of the musicians and other such considerations are your own reasons for liking/disliking a piece of music but, rather than assuming everyone uses your same irrelevant benchmarks and then insulting them when they clearly like something that you don't, try the PSD button...  {#Beat}

Hmmm, average rating 8.4; I guess pretty much everyone who listens to RP is completely ignorant about music, except you.
Maybe keep your sanctimonious whining to yourself and hit the PSD button.

isn't is weird how many of the old songs from the 60s and 70s are way more overplayed now than they ever were when they were hits? that's why I only listen to NPR and RP (and Alice Cooper—he plays deep cuts a lot)

This song never plays.. It has come up twice on PSD, both times its just silence. No sound. I waited many minutes into it to see if it was just an error in the beginning, but no. Just no sound, no file there. Why is that?

What? Actor out alone, dog without a bone don't meet your standards of... something. Coherence? I have always liked the musical mood of this song but would almost rather he had dispensed with "lyrics".

 
"Actor out on loan":  During the Hollywood studio era, each company cast its films in-house, using mostly contract players. Sometimes, if the unit making the film felt that certain roles could not be cast with studio personnel, they looked outside for actors unattached to a studio, actors with nonexclusive studio contracts, or those whose home studio was willing to loan them out.  This was often done without the star's consent.  An actor out on loan was, to some degree, cast out.

"Like a dog without a bone,... an actor out on loan", would make more sense in this context.  Maybe Morrison actually had a coherent theme when writing these "lyrics".  I, for one, am rather happy he did not dispense with them.
