The Doors
« on: January 14, 2007, 11:20:57 PM »
I'm just posting up one of my favorite bands. I love all of my classic rock groups, but it would take too long to post up topics on them. How about you guys? Favorite album or song or anything?

I'd say favorite song right now would be Shaman's Blues because it's pretty catchy.
Favorite album would be Morrison Hotel.

Here's a pretty cool video of Peace Frog:

My Doors "story" is that when I was about 10 or 11 I started watching the Doors movie on TV and loved the music (as it was my first introduction to doors music), a year or two later I got my first cd player and bought the self titled album... It was excellent. Not much of a story and it doesn't really go any where, but hey I should get props for my 3  album ever being the doors (my first two were Greenday Dookie and Alanis Morrisett Jagged Pill)

Also, my favorite song is either Riders on the Storm or Light my Fire

Big fan of the doors. Unique sound, great songs. I couldn't pick a favorite song by them, I like them all.

I've not listened to much of The Doors' stuff, but I quite like "Hello, I love you".

I always liked the Doors, altho I admit to only owning two disc "Best of" collection and "L.A. Woman". My favorite song has always been "Spanish Caravan". no particular reason why.

Legacy is a pretty good compilation disc. Me however, I created an MP3 cd with the newest Perception box set on there, Absolutely Live, and Essential Rarities. I need to get some Bright Midnight CDs, though. I heard the Live at the Aquarius albums were really good.

Strange Days is one of my favorite albums (like, top ten even).

For no reason, I have had the song/poem/thing "Horse Latitudes" stuck in my head for the past 17 hours.

Edit: Er, no, wait.  It has now been replaced by "Hear the Engines Roll Now (Idiot Control Now?)."  As you were.

My Doors story is an odd one, in some ways. I read the Jim Morrisson biography No One Here Gets Out Alive at about age twelve, cause it was laying about the house, and that made it fair game for my voracious reading appetites at the time.

It wasn't until I was fourteen that I actually heard the Doors (at least that I was aware of). A friend's mom was driving me home and Light My Fire came on the radio, and from the descriptions of the music in the book, I knew this had to be The Doors. I asked her, and she was a bit confused that I didn't know (this was in the US, but they never were as big in Sweden), but confirmed that it was The Doors.

I'm going to have to check the book again to see if the descriptions really are that spot on, but I just found it refreshing that they had a sound so original that it couldn't be mistaken for anyone else after having had it explained to you. There's not many bands you can say that about - especially not in the mainstream.

That said, I'm not a huge fan (especially not of the heavier Blues workouts) but they have a lot of really good material and of the canonized unimpeachable Rock Icons of today, they are one of the few who mostly deserve the adulation.

a lot of people's impression of The Doors usually comes from Oliver Stones movie, and it's a good starting place, but it is not the definitive place to leave off. I think everyone who likes 'em enough needs to do a little exploring and create your own perception of The Doors. That's the way Jim would have wanted it.
