I'm often tempted to wake up and get myself a beer. Because, for one thing, the end is indeed always near and it might be better to reach it with a Lagunitas or Six Point in hand. But even if not, my end as a singer of any talent whatsoever would quickly be over if I tried to scat like Jim boy in this here otherwise semi-classic.

Ever thought of redecorating?  I imagine your parents are tired of looking at that same R.E.M. poster that still adorns the wall of your room after all these years...

Heh, that's how I've always heard it, too.  Always wondered about it but never bothered to look up the real lyrics till now.

Loosely translates to "Let it roll, baby, all night long"

I. Hate. The. Doors.

Just need to get that off my chest from time to time. Back to your lives, citizens.

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.

(Now watch, I'm talking about the music and someone - instead of defending the music - is gonna attack me personally.)

The Doors are, and where, essential, cerebral, and much deeper than just their music.

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.
