LISTEN – WAY TOO SOON! –
June 27, 2020 – Written by Morrison himself, the song featured on their epic LP Waiting for the Sun and is a staple of any Doors fan’s collection. The track ranks high as one of the most notorious songs of the band’s impressive discography and the isolated vocal adds a whole other level of wonderment to the number. Before his untimely death in 1971, Morrison was the archetypal poet/singer and commanded a legion of fans. Judging by this, it’s easy to see why.
On first listen, the song can feel like The Doors attempt at a pop smash, destined to attempt the ascent to the top of the charts, such as the quaint title and the rhythmic bop that runs through the chorus. In truth, that’s not too far from the target.
