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

Light My Fire is to The Doors as Creep is to Radiohead. It's their most famous song, but in my opinion, it isn't even one of their top 10 best. There are just so many better ones.

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.

One of the greatest songs ever. A classic. This was their final hit record. Yes the Summer of 1971. A great time for music.

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.

Another masterpiece. The Doors had no weaknesses. All their songs were great.

4Break On Through (To the Other Side)

One of the most underrated songs ever and it's amazing song that should be in the first top 10 list long live rock'n'roll and hail to jim morrison!

The first song of the first album
For me Forever the best, as reminds me of the moment when I have heard them for the first time in my life

Great song! The doors are the best. Late 60's rock forever man.

Super hip and cool just like cream's song strange brew on Disraeli gears. 1967 best year ever for rock, psyche, and soul music!

5People Are Strange

Perfect! Describes mankind and it's addicting! Best music ever! Jim was the man!

Excellent poetry by JIM MORRISON. Very true and deep..

Great lyrics, awesome guitar. Apparently Jim was feeling morose one day or night and went for a walk alone, when he returned he introduced the band to this track, written during his walk. Not a top 5, but not to be overlooked.

Beautiful song

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.

Easily the best Doors song.

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.

8When 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 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 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 should be top 3 with The End and Riders On The Storm.

9Touch 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. )

Another great song, Love their music, my favorite band!

10The Crystal Ship

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.

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

Beautiful song. When I have my headache crisis I listen to classical music or The Crystal Ship by the Doors.

You're lost little girl

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.

Hello, I love this simple song

13Peace 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!

If I was calling in a request for a Doors song, it would be this one.

14Love 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.

Great song, Jim has a one of kind voice I'd know it any where nobody can sing like him!

15The Soft Parade

Not a typical doors track, but still warrants recognition. I love how the song changes mood, much like L.A Woman. It really is a trip. Jim seems to take on a Kurt Cobain style of writing in his later work. Hyacinth House was written at Robbys and the line, I think the bathroom is clear is simply about waiting to use the toilet, soft parade seems to be another random collections of observations, peppermint, miniskirts, chocolate candy, Champion sax and a girl name Sandy. Good to see it made the top 20.

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!

16Five to One

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

This song is an absolute jam. Morrison's vocals are brilliant and the feeling the song gives you is mesmerizing. Love it

What's not to love about this song, One hell of a band!

Nice rep for the politics of the time

17Back 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.

All there songs were so good, wish I could of went to one of their concerts, if you want to know what classic rock is listen to The Doors!

Sounds better every time I hear it; very underrated

The Doors didn't write this song.

Why is this so low on the list?! LOVE this song, very psychedelic yet still has a very catchy groove to it.

Underrated song; hard to beat the combination of songs on their debut album

19Strange Days

This is a top 10 song, easy. The rise of the keys in the intro is much like the rise in the Beatles here comes the sun bridge. The bass line is great, keys are brilliant, guitar is perfect, drums are genius. I can't fault a single doors release, maybe a soft parade track, but everything these guys did was nothing short of pure genius. Most underrated band of all time.

Their music was special as each one of the band was!

20Waiting 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.

This is my number 1 doors track. Perfect bass, beautiful guitar, great keys and killer vocals. It slowly builds up and the bridge is pure genius. It's a very haunting song and really expresses how far ahead of their time the doors were. I can't fault it.

This is the strangest life I have ever known.

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

One of my favourite songs of all time. - Cyrobian
