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

Just don't mention queen in the same breath as the Doors, Hendrix, or the Stooges please. if you do, then you just don't get it.

2Riders on the Storm

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.

Riders is one of the greatest songs ever, let alone the greatest Doors song. Its mellow, serious, and the effect of the rain really puts it together. Ray Manzarek and Jim Morrison really showed out on this song

The Doors really make you feel like you are riding on the Storm, that's why this song is the best of The Doors.

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.

Apocalypse now movie restored this song to greatness

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

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

This song is better than the end in my opinion

5People Are Strange

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

I love to sing this song, it's nice and deep. It helps you forget about all the useless notes in the 5 octave and up that pop music now sells to the tasteless consumer. - Hmv1998

The first doors song I listened to and still my favourite after hearing all of their albums. A true psychedelic masterpiece. Long live the Doors.

Perfect melody and with deep lyrics. Definitely The Doors is in my top 10 best bands of all time.

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. )

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

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...

When the music over turn out the light, turn out the light, Love, love, love!

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.

The other side or morrison

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

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.

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

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.

How is this not higher. I feel like dancing every time I hear it. Also, that organ, amazing.

15Strange Days

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

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!

17Five 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

19Waiting 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!

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.

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!

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