Top 10 The Doors Songs

The Top TenXW

1Light My Fire

Like Bohemian Rhapsody by queen, Light my fire is The Doors, hell yeah

Fast paced, fun and psychadelic everything the doors are about I can't believe riders on the storm is number 1...

ok all the doors songs are amazing but people light my fire is the definition of the doors

THIS is the song people think of when talking about the Doors, NOT Riders on the Storm. Don't get me wrong, it's an okay song, but Light My Fire is just better. The organ-like keyboards, the soothing yet haunting guitar solo, and Jim's cool voice make this such a good song.

2Riders on the Storm

This is the trippiest song ever! - westofohio

Its awesome when you are driving on high speed in rain and listening to RIDERS ON THE STORM

Nothing beats this song. Nothingg... The Doors can't be beat, and this is the top of the top. It's everything they're about and represent.

There's only four obvious words to say about this song, Riders, on, the, Storm. But! If you listen to this song, it makes you feel like... I don't know! It's a creepy, majestic, amazing song! - MontyPython

3The End

The End features the best of every member of the Doors. Jim Morrison gives his best lyrics with eleven minutes of philosophy mixed with weird psychedelic images and finishes it off by screaming about his mother. He delivers his greatest energy and most affecting feeling. Robby Krieger, Ray Manzarek and John Densmore invent a whole new type of psychedelic music that sounds like it comes from a different planet. The End is one of the most unique and surreal pieces of music ever written and is the Doors best song.

very deep song. he really lizard king and this song really great...

A great song. Very spaced out and psychedelic. Excellent background music. Very surreal.

Amazing thing about this song is doesn't matter how many versions live or studio I've heard it always takes me to a surreal place... Every version sets a Unique mood in its on right with different lyrics and instrumentals each more mysterious than the next. Improvisation takes over in this song and that's when true artists shine...

6L.A. Woman

I can't believe how low this song is. Seriously light my fire and riders on the storm are awesome but they can't compare to la woman...

From the best Doors album of the same name. Love this song. I agree, it should be much higher on the list if you ask me and you're a true Doors fan.

Honestly. Easily their best. Used to try to drive back from my girlfriends before this song ended when I was a kid. Best bit of the relationship. The day we broke up - I made it.

WHy so low? :( I think it should be higher up

7Roadhouse Blues

If this song isn't in top three, then the world must be psychotic and demented. The blunt and rusted guitar-work, the hard-hitting rifts and drives, and of course Jim's complementing vocals! This song is an accepted masterpiece of Classic Rock.

The song does justice to its name. The background music is a lso fabulous. Truly extraordinary. Deserves a better rank.

It's a great song.. I was surprised it wasn't even included in the first place

The background is amazing- that kind of swag can change the attitude completely.

8Touch Me

The imagery that Jim gives you with his lyrics is uncanny. Combined with the new twist of horn instruments, it really is my favourite song by the doors. Although, the doors probably have the largest amount of songs that I like as a whole. "If the doors of perception were cleansed everything would appear to man as it is, infinite. "

Oh, God, I learned this like... Not even two days ago and it's almost already in the top 25 most played list. I mean, I knew it before, but I didn't remember it. And here I am. This song is so catchy and so awesome, you just HAVE to love it.

Uh, hello!

The Doors - Touch Me

Into YouTube (Or if you are too lazy, I'd really love for you to click the sample. )

Beings a flush of emotions to me. A powerful song by the doors, the best

9When the Music's Over

What does a song have to do to get up there in this list? This is one moody song from one moody band... Should be about number six. One of the greatest screams in rock. (Is there a greatest scream list? )

This one is much better than 'break on through' and 'people are strange'.. Should be number 4. Not saying they're bad songs but this one is amazing

This song gives you the best trip ever. The sudden start, melodious initial section, mysterious instrumental in the middle, the slow, quiet poem and the explosive end... Best trip ever...

This is better than the end love it

10The Crystal Ship

"The streets are fields that never die. "
Simply beautiful and enchanting track and one of Jim's finest vocal performance.

I think it's one of the best songs ever written. And one of the best songs performed by Jim. And it's very peaceful too.

It gets better every time I listen to it... I'm on no. 100000000000. Simply a masterpiece, and hardly anyone know about it!

Do me a favour and switch this with "L.A. Woman" (which is still a good song) in the top ten. - PetSounds

The Contenders

11Hello, I Love You

I used it as a pick up once, it worked

The day a girl says to me, "Hello, I love you. Won't you tell me your name? " I will marry her. - PetSounds

Come on?. This song is groovy dude!. This song should be on every The Doors playlist.

So nice. Wow, I'm going to try this as a pick up line. Thanks! - Hmv1998

13Love Her Madly

Great vocals by Morrison and good lyrics
Manzarek did great as usual and the simple solo by Krieger was the icing on the cake... Definitely The Doors Best Song - elementeyas

Beautiful lyrics and singing by Jim Morrison as always, and such a lovely melody.
"Don't you love her as she's walking out the door? Like she did one thousand times before"

One of the last Doors songs. For me second best song of the LA Woman album behind riders on the storm.

14Peace Frog

Definitely not the most famous song by The Doors but still my favorite. And it was in the Waterboy, so bonus points there.

This is the song that got me into the doors and I love it. First heard it in tony hawk's American wasteland and have been a doors fan ever since then.

This is my favorite song by them has to be higher!

15Strange Days
16The Soft Parade

Jim was a great singer, but one heck of a poet. This song proves that theory for sure.

YOU SHALL NOT PETITION THE LORD WITH PRAYER!

This is the trip!

17Love Street

Why this amazing is so below! It should be in at least top 15.

When I listened it for the first time... I listened it for a whole night the poetry of jim is aesome

18Waiting for the Sun

Amazing song, amazing length, amazing voice.

"Waiting for the sun" is one of my favorite songs by the doors, and to see that it hasn't made it any higher is sort of disappointing. Nonetheless, the song isn't as popular as some, yet it should still have earned more nods than it has.

Arguably one of the first heavy metal songs ever made... For the album of the same name but not published until 1970. Killer riff.

This is one of my favorite songs by the doors. Why is it all the way down here? Bull crap!

Bestes Lied der Welt!

19Five to One

No one here gets out alive now! Pure Jim Morrison.

Uplifting, works like Cocaine for the soul

One of my bests jim at his best agressions

20Back Door Man

What a classic rock. Where is Jim now to sing this? Oh man, I should have born in 50's to hear this.. This should be in top ten.

This song is incredible, slow and blusey, wonderful vocals and music from every member of the band - fidelcanojr

Why is this at 18?
