This was the first song that turned me onto the doors many years ago. It is so loose and bluesy and really rocks. It is the background to much of my youth.

Morrison, if you watch those movies of him performing, is not too far removed from a frat boy bully.

You want existential philosophy and hifalutin' concepts, David Byrne's yer man, I'm sure. Most male rock stars, it seems, are pretty puerile/juvenile, so you can't expect them to be contenders for the Nobel Prize for Literature, and with a basic blues song like this, the lyrics are bound to be pretty down 'n' dirty. Just get with the beat and ignore the words.

That distinction has to go to Rush, followed closely by Kiss.
Btw, "unspecial"? You sound pretty unsmart.

I'd argue, but only on the possibly pedantic grounds that it's a blues rather than rock number, or at least blues-rock. With all the famous rock numbers The Doors produced, many forget that they were a great blues band, so thanks to RP for playing their lesser-known blues numbers. 7 from the Nottingham jury.

The Kings probably hope that people will still be listening to their music and talking about them after they've been dead or off the charts for nearly 40 years.

I don't think that's even a probability. Just my opinion. {#Wave}

Ok guys I totally can understand how something from back then can get to you, believe me I was tired of light my fire while it was still on the juke same with white rabbit, things do get ruined by overplay and with the classic rock channels its worse but does that mean that the Doors or Airplane were no good or even Zep,they ruined stairway for me, if I get in car and don't hear freebird its a rarity and they are beating Floyd to death tho I love them but these are things that have been playing for over 20, 30 or 40 years sometimes and thats a long time. Roadhouse Blues is a "good" song but it takes the brunt of the frustrations of people who want their own new music and I can really dig that, thats why I was ecstatic to hear RP. Stuff I missed, stuff thats new, stuff thats from other places is so damn enjoyable to hear because its "NEW" to my ears even if its not so new. Music like art it's up to the individuals tastes, I know I drove people out of the house with stuff I played. Seems some people weren't big Zappa or Beefheart or for that fact NRBQ and Carl Perkins fans but what the hell I liked it. They also didn't like the Jazz and Classical stuff I did or later the African artists but that didn't diminish them in any way, they liked what they liked and some starting liking stuff that they were exposed to so TY RP for bringing great music to us and remember that all musicians had their influences and the old guys opened doors and inspired the new artists just look at the ratings on Brubeck or the Count and the Duke which most people could care less in the days of Doors Beatles Zep etc. ,so where I know some things have been ruined for ya, listen to things with a open mind. What ya don't like today ya might like tomorrow. Tolerance seems to be in short commodity these days and we need it to get along . Peace and happy listening

But the main thing is that Jimbo was not posturing when he sang: he really did live the life he sang about, and as a result, his music was particularly vital and authoritative.
