A crazy little Robby Krieger 'song' that is annoying and enticing at both the same time. Starting off with Robby strumming a simple acoustic guitar line and appealing for an irritating insect to let him eat his lunch in peace it spirals off into an epic instrumental piece beginning with Latin beats and then after a further appeal for Robby for peace a cavalcade of swirling Manzarek keyboards and searing Krieger guitar reminiscent of The Doors at their height. John Densmore offers up some excellently varied rock and bossa nova style drumming using both brush and stick with able support from Leland Sklar's pounding bass guitar.
It was released as a single in August 1972 reaching #85 in the US and went down very well in South America Ironically it was the only Doors song from this era played by Ray Manzarek's silly tribute act that caused so much trouble from 2003. A mark of it's popularity even today.
Regardless of how silly the song itself is it is one of the best post Morrison examples of how awesome the musical trio of The Doors could be. Highly recommended.
The music is fine, but the lyrics are pretty silly.
Latin music of “Push Push”, which is the remastered Soft Parade album seem me a little similar to a Cuban traditional music called Guantanamera (the girl from Guantánamo) with a mixed of Mexican mariachi’s screams included. There are hundreds of versions of Guantanamera.
