:-[I have given this excellent section a forum of it's own and hopefully a few will join in and try to discuss their fave Doors lyric or the music behind it. What were it's influences musically and lyrically. What was the thought behind the song or the music. I will refer to the book Moonlight Drive which has it's own take on the songs and gives some interesting information even if I disagree with a lot of it's conclusions. I will use it to simply add information as the meaning behind the songs means different things to different people.
That's the beauty of a Doors song when it's done right. The words don't always mean anything special but they along with the music can conjure up a myriad of images in the mind.
So quite simply what do you guys think the lyrics mean and what do they mean to you? Have you a view on the musical development of the songs of The Doors?
This may differ from the assumed meaning but it does not matter as there is no wrong or right answer here. You are the final arbiter of meaning when it comes to these lyrics which is what Jim Morrison intended when he wrote these songs and I am sure Robby tried to copy that in his songwriting. There are a few examples here and I will add some this next week or so.
So join in and add your own faves and try to give YOUR analysis of what Morrison or Krieger were trying to achieve with their writing and even add Ray and John who wrote for the final two Doors album.
We also look at the musicians themselves and examine their style and instruments so if you have any comments to make as to the actual musicians in The Doors feel free.
