1. The End
2. When The Music's Over
3. Waiting For The Sun (did they ever play this live?)
4. L.A. Woman
5. Break On Through
6. Five To One
7. Spanish Caravan
8. The Unknown Soldier
9. Peace Frog
10. The Wasp (Texas Radio And The Big Beat)

I wrote a really bad paper on the historical importance of the Doors in high school. Here’s my favorites:

The Crystal Ship
You’re Lost Little Girl
The End
Not to Touch the Earth
Hello, I Love You
The Soft Parade
Shaman’s Blues
Roadhouse Blues
Waiting for the Sun
You Make Me Real
Peace Frog
Riders on the Storm
The WASP (Texas Radio and the Big Beat)
Light My Fire (esp for the solos)
Break on Through

Oh, I went through a big Doors phase in younger years. Drove the GF freakin crazy, perhaps topped only by the irritation she felt when I was going through my Grateful Dead phase. To this day, her eye twitches a bit when I throw on the Dead, as she fears a possible relapse.

Ironically, I generally loathe compilations, but with the Doors, one of their best releases was just that. "Weird Scenes Inside the Gold Mine" has not only most of their best material, but it manages to capture a cohesive vibe that cements the songs into their own "album" personality, if that makes sense.

But back on topic, my fave Doors songs are...

The Crystal Ship
Alabama/Whiskey (Hollywood Bowl version)
End of the Night
You're Lost Little Girl
Love Street
Yes, the River Knows
Peace Frog
Blue Sunday
Shaman's Blues
