Song of the Day: The Doors, “Light My Fire” (Live)

Happy 76th birthday to John Densmore, drummer for The Doors. "Light My Fire" was from The Doors’ eponymous 1966 album and was released as a single in April 1967. It reached #1 on the Hot 100 and stayed there for three weeks, and #1 on the Cash Box singles chart for one week. It re-entered the Hot 100 the following year after José Feliciano’s cover hit the charts, and reached #87. This is a live version that was recorded at the Aquarius Theater in Los Angeles.

  2. Love this song and what a sexy but strong voice. I’m too bleary eyed this morning but how old would he be now? He would be in his 70s for sure….amazing.

  3. This version is really good…it’s dicey with them on live stuff because of Morrison…the music is always great.

  4. Awesome song and one that echoed the halls of my dorms at uni (the movie came out while I was studying). Great memories associated with that song.
