I'm "impressed" by the vitriol thrown towards The Doors.  Especially as one of the fans of their music (incl. this great track, as depicted in the movie, this was the song that got the whole thing started, and I happily rate it a 10) I really love that they were rebels in many different ways.  No bassist was different, drugs and such and all of Jim's antics.  I for one really dig the Blues version of the doors, esp. around their 5th and 6th/last album;  Jim really was a great Blues singer IMO. And the 3 musicians were super too. 

Anyway, I suppose you feel about them as I do about U2/Radiohead/manyothersetc - I say LONG LIVE RP and all MUSIC!

He was an intelligent fellow, so I am quite sure he understood "moderation". He just chose a different path.

This song is probably really of a case of you had to be there.  Not then, but there.  The Doors were SoCal.  This is a song that captures the feeling of what it was like to be there, then.  Heading to the beach, in the middle of the night, the thrill and the excitement of getting and being there.

Glad I was, and I love this song, because it still takes me back to that time and place.

I can't understand the too-low rating for this song. Jim Morrison was one of the sexiest-sounding, albeit most messed up people of the twentieth century.


Maybe to you he was; to me, the 20th century had many, many more interesting, sexy, and talented figures than Jim Morrison.
 
I wouldn't say "messed up", that description belongs to the likes of Charlie Manson.  Jim Morrison was eccentric, as were and are so many talented genii in this benighted world of ours.  Don't ever forget:  his talents as a poet, musician and all around stage performer will continue to frame him as an Icon for that age of wonderment.

This album is very well obtained, all the songs that are enclosed here disclose a period particularly fertile and inspired that this band "The Doors" (one of my preferences without a doubt!) crossed in 1967;  therefore i would detach here the song of my election enclosed in this album that is "You're Lost Little Girl", the one that more sensetizes for me and perhaps that it withholds the personal record of hearings between all of this album; this is a mere personal point of view that i admit to be able to be subject to the best opinion, considering in such difficult way the choice, in a similar way that the songs are immensely rich all that compose this album

album "
Strange Days" (1967)

From one of my two most-favorite Doors' LPs (the first being their debut).

Gotta say, though, they were blown off the stage by The Crazy World of Arthur Brown!
