The Top Ten
This song is a tribute to comedian and performer Andy Kaufman, and gave its name to Miloš Forman's movie based on Kaufman's life. The movie is irresistible (as the song), starring Jim Carrey as Andy Kaufman. The song "The Great Beyond" was written for the movie's soundtrack. - Lotuscandy

After writing them in his notebook during a drug-filled summer, Morrison shared these lyrics with UCLA acquaintance Ray Manzarek by writing them in the sand underneath Venice Pier, thus making it the first "official" Doors song.
It's known to be one of the first songs ever written by Jim Morrison and he supposedly wrote it on a rooftop in Venice Beach, Los Angeles, California in 1965.
"Let's swim to the moon, let's climb through the tide, penetrate the evening that the city sleeps to hide" - Lotuscandy
I love this version, it always reminds me to Bewitched's theme song (the 1960's series), maybe because it was produced in the same era. - Lotuscandy
Really nice add, thank you Metal_Treasure! - Lotuscandy
Can't believe I forgot Cat Stevens, thank you Billyv for adding him! - Lotuscandy
