233 – The Doors – Light My Fire (1967)
Written by The Doors
Produced by Paul Rothchild
Label – Elektra
Guitarist Robbie Krieger had this half finished song lingering around from before the band formed. Imagine the thrill he must have had when keyboardist Ray Manzarek added the bass line, and more importantly, that memorable organ intro. Sonically, The Doors entry point as one of the biggest bands in the world owes as much to THAT intro as Jim Morisson’s vocal and persona. It may explain the reason he never cared for the song.
