Very clever comeback

 
Absolutely, although insulting me isn't really the same as defending the Doors.

I will always associate this album and album cover with Ray Bradbury, whom I discovered about the same time I bought this album in 1967.  Bradbury's short stories about the somewhat sinister and mysterious aspects of traveling circuses in Midwestern small town settings dovetailed perfectly with the mood created by this album.

Tolerable. Morrison's bully/frat approach is somewhat offset by Manzerak. 
But in general, these guys were usually mediocre, and this is yet another example.

I like the mustash and the snow leopard skirt on the strong man.

I like this tune but with the exception of a meter and a few rhymes here and there, the "poetry" in these lyrics is pretty juvenile.

Turning of RP because of this.

No talent, overplayed, no need to litter the beautiful audio landscape with this McDonalds bag of dreck. 

 
You do know about the PSD button, right?
I don't like the Doors either and the PSD button took me to my happy place.

Does anyone have any trivia facts about where the cover photo was shot?

 
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Strange_Days#Artwork

"Unlike all of the band's other studio albums made with Jim Morrison, the album cover of Strange Days does not feature a group shot of the band, due to Morrison's refusal to appear on the cover. Instead, Joel Brodsky decided to photograph a group of street performers in New York. The location of the photograph is at Sniffen Court, a residential alley off of East 36th Street between Lexington and Third Avenue in Manhattan. The availability of such performers pictured was low, so Brodsky's assistant stood in as a juggler while a random cab driver was paid $5 to pose playing the trumpet. Twin dwarfs were hired, with one appearing on the front cover and one appearing on the back cover, which is the other half of the same photo on the front cover. However, a group shot of the band does appear on a poster in the background of both covers, bearing captions of the band and album name. (The same photograph previously appeared on the back cover of the band's debut album.) Because of the subtlety of the artist and album title, most record stores put stickers across the cover to help customers identify it more clearly."

This link leads to an article with a lot more detail and funny bits about trying to get that shot. Apparently the acrobats were awful and the juggler couldn't keep two balls in the air for very long. Brodsky probably needed a few drinks at the end of that day. The link is included in the Wikipedia article.

OK: you cannot leave us hanging with that line.

The greatness of the Doors becomes more apparent every passing day.
Oh yea!   and it must be a 10     {#Bananasplit}

You mean that ancient toy instrument, used widely during the 18th century, the Harpsichord?

So I'm probably a freak or something but I hate The Doors. I'm gonna PSD, you all have a good time. I'll be back when it is over.

It's a little alley called Sniffen Court, in the Murray Hill section of Manhattan.  I worked near there years ago.  I believe it's private these days.
Looks like it was shot in the last episode of "The Prisoner". I'm only half joking.

Yes, well you certainly have 'gone away', Jim. Hope it was worth it all.

This song is soooo good for the ears...

 
Fondest of memories. I was 15 when I started to listen to the Doors in 1966.  I would go over to my friend's house and we would lay on the two beds in his room and listen to his older brother's Dooors albums over and over.  He is still my best friend even though we only cross paths sporadically and at improbable times.  Live hundreds of miles apart.  He went to Washington and Lee in VA, became a born again Christian, still is, and I'm a fallen catholic anarchist-agnostic, but we can still talk spirituality.  Rememberances of the Doors often come up.
I miss Jim Morrison.

Ha! 'Mope Rock'. A perfect description, thanks for that.
I could use love two times today

I love RP until he starts playing this and Simon and Garfunkel or the Beach Boys.  Stop it already!! This doesn't work here!
This is pretty much to my likings!
Lovely, Lovely and LOVELY !!

ARROW '07 Riders on the Storm by ~Merdahn
Cynthia Veekens   ©2007-2010 ~Merdahn

Non other than Robby Krieger (THE DOORS), guitarist of Riders on the Storm... A 'tribute'band to one of worlds greatest musicians/ poets (in my opinion) Jim Morrison and his band 'The Doors'

Robert Alan "Robby" Krieger (born January 8, 1946) is an American rockguitarist and songwriter. He was the guitarist in The Doors, and wrote some of the band's best known songs, including "Light My Fire," "Love Me Two Times," "Touch Me," and "Love Her Madly."

He is listed as number 91 on Rolling Stone's list of the 100 greatest guitarists of all time.




Yet another case of "you had to be there."  This was an amazing album and song.  Love it!

I guess some people are just that type of character. You can't simply dismiss them by having this sort of melancholic, dreamy style. I appreciate Jim for being authentic oh, so authentic. Most of his songs can't be toped in the Mope Rock genre. And Love Me Two Times is for sure included.
