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 wish the Blues version of the doors, starting with 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!

A little ADD in the family maybe? This is anything but tedious. Christ, it feels like it's only 2:30 min long even though it's actually 3.

Always the blues lurking around. They had it.

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

I recall the first few times I heard this. Surely, I was never the same; my eyes and ears had been opened, and my mind freed to roam...

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.

If you had said "Lola", "Who Are You", "Teach Your Children", and "Light My Fire" your argument would hold some water.  But the songs that you have listed are NOT regular radio play.  Quit your crying.

 

Yeah, what he said.
