Egads! 

I can't believe people dis this song. This is one of the greatest RnR songs ever recorded. 

It's got everything: hooks, bombastic lyrics, three or four different tempos, great guitar and piano. Drumming is great. 

t's has great sexual innuendos and a simulated orgasm by the Lizard King.  

 
Here here!!  I 100% agree; this is a GREAT rock song.  And to top it off, it has the amazing anagram "Mr. Mojo Risin" = "Jim Morrison"

This album is almost my favorite Doors' album; it's pretty nearly a tie with their debut.  What's amazing to consider about how this album came together are all the things going on with the band (i.e. Jim's legal issues due to his antics, and the ever present question "will Jim be sober enough today?") - oh and then their longtime producer (Paul Rothchild) took a big disliking to the first hearing of the songs (I believe "Love Her Madly" was what drove him away) so the band decided to co-produce with Bruce Botnick.  Record it in the studio?  Hell No, they decided to use their own rehearsal space, which resulted in the raw, live sound reminiscent of their debut.

And the absolute best part was that recording was done in 6 days spread between December 1970 and January 1971.  Mixing took another week, from an 8-track recorder nonetheless.  yeah....I think it's obvious that I LOVE this album.  Even the throwaway song (Hyacinth House) I find to be excellent (although that's probably because it became one of my "I'm breaking up with her soon" songs. 

Long Live RP and the Lizard King!  And RIP to Pam and Ray too.

There are also plenty of bands that had somebody die and it didn't propel them into fame and airplay. The ones that stuck - you know the list - generally deserve it.

this song, as do all in the Doors repertoire,  speaks to me.  It says "find another station"

Not a great song to listen to when driving.

Try and keep your foot off the accelerator when listening to L.A. Woman.

I know because I have the speeding ticket to prove it.

Hey...is this a "Thanksgiving Day-friendly" song? 

Is it wholesome? Family-centric?

Would Mannheim Steamroller cover it? 

Could ya wear a read sweater and dance to it? 

Would a turkey be offended? 

Would LA Woman be someone you would invite to dinner?
