    I don't quite recall when I first heard a Doors's ong, but I could safely assume that it was Jim Morrison wailing the tune 'Light My Fire' or 'Break on Through'. After all, these two anthems are the foundations upon which the Doors' legend was built, and to this day remain the band's gems. But as I have come to learn through the years of reading about and scouring over regurgitated bits of information of this group is that they are so much more than a member of the genre of those 1960 s bands wh...
  • Your Lost Little Girl
    1,195 words
    The song "Your Lost Little Girl" was a metaphorical symbolism for everything Morrison believed in. It reflects Jim's terrible disposition for authority and his goal to show people the way to freedom. He believed that to accept authority was to become authority. His excessive drug use and drinking fueled him to write some of the most original and visionary music ever. It also led him to a mind state that left some people thinking him insane and others thinking him a god. James Douglas Morrison wa...
