Top 10 The Doors Songs

The Top Ten

1 Light My Fire

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

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

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

Awesome! - Fuziion

2 Riders 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.

Love "Light My Fire". but to me its second to Riders on the strom

3 The 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.

Cathartic, Emotional, Heavy and Trippy, "The End" is the Doors' best recorded song. It features the greatest from every member: Jim Morrison's iconic vocals, philosophy and psychedelic imagery out in the Californian desert dominate this song along with one of the greatest guitar lines in Psychedelic music, the emotional eastern sound of the guitar drones throughout creating a haunting and hypnotic effect like a street performer playing flute while his cobra dances. The drumming is intricate and powerful and the organ drones throughout like the sound of the desert itself. This song is literally going through hell and war and then coming back to the world, a new man.

4 Break 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.

6 L.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.

This song should keep on rising until it reaches on top

7 Touch 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. )

Love Manzarek's jazzy organ riffs on this song---a timeless Doors classic!

8 Roadhouse 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

This song is sure to get me moving and rocking out to the bluesy riffs and Morrison's ecstatic vocals. Such a fun and fantastic song. - cjWriter1997

9 When 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 is the best song of 1967, and the best thing the Doors ever recorded. Great performance from Jim and the rest of the band members. Great band chemistry on this track, and one of the best album closers to ever come into existence.

10 Hello, 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

The Contenders

11 The 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.

HOW? HOW IS THIS 10?! THIS IS MY FAVORITE SONG OF ALL TIME. THE ORGAN IS VERY VERY BEAUTIFUL, THE LYRICS ARE WONDERFUL, THE VOCALS ARE THE BEST JIM EVER RECORDED. SHOULD BE 2ND PLACE, IF YOU THINK 'THE END' IS MORE INFLUENTIAL

13 Peace 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.

14 Love 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.

Way too low...

15 Back 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

Amazing song

17 Five 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

Ooh, the solo is wonderful, dirty and the best of Robbie

Nice rep for the politics of the time

18 Summer's Almost Gone

This is such a beautifully constructed song about endings. Relationships, friendships and experiences. Ray is really at his best in this song.

19 The 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.

When I was back there in seminary school, there was a person there who put forth the proposition, that you can petition the lord with prayer.

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

My favorite Doors song.

20 Waiting 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 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.

This is not the first metal song but should be higher
