The Top Ten
I think it's nice to see this song at number one. - Gg2000
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
Great song, great movie, great comedian, great band, great soundtrack, great comment... - Billyv
Obviously timeless and beautiful, thank you Metal_Treasure! - Lotuscandy
This song is also known for its misheard lyrics - "There's a bathroom on the right" (actual lyric "There's a bad moon on the rise"). - Metal_Treasure
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 Van Morrison. Unusual for a teenage girl right

Les Paul was an American guitarist, songwriter, luthier, and inventor.
He was one of the pioneers of the solid body electric guitar, which made the sound of rock and roll possible. He has made many recording innovations, was a guitar builder, and the Gibson Les Paul, one of the world's most famous electric guitars, was inspired by Paul's innovative guitar "The Log".
This song is a jazz standard, Les Paul and his wife Mary Ford recorded it in 1951. - Lotuscandy
Featuring Sinéad O'Connor - 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
It took time to decide which version of this song I wanted to add, I finally opted for the old-fashioned charm of this one - Lotuscandy
