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...

Just listen to the keyboards in this song, this band did so much good to progressive/psychedelic rock music, all while going without a bass guitarist...

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.

Late at night, when it's dark and raining: nothing suits this athmosphere better than Riders on the Storm...

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.

The best. It was influenced by indian classical music. The guitars and all the instruments mimic indian classical instruments.

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.

Just too hip and cool

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.

Their most perfectly realized work, containing the prog-level technique showcased in many of their albums and combining it with a raw, soulful blues feel. My favorite of theirs by far.

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!

V 10 Comments
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

That scream though

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.

SIng it for your love. Her reaction will tell you how pretty the lyrics are.

12 Love Me Two Times

Listen to it. You will understand.

This songs is great, it should be higher on the list

This song has somethin special, a rhythm, an energy that can make a crowd feel like one

This should be top 10.

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 Alabama Song

This is great I think this song is number 1

This is.. The best.. Doors song. Oh, don't ask why. Oh, don't ask why.

I just find this song very nice and fun should be in the top tens

I think it is the best song. It should be number three or four

16 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 Spanish Caravan

Are you insane? Why isn't this song at least in the top ten. It's just beautiful. The flamenco guitar of robbie krieger, the extraordinary lyrics, jim's voice...

... Nothing beats this song. The only reason Spanish Caravan isn't higher on this list is because it hasn't been heard by as many people. The Doors at their best!

This needs to be higher. It's such a nice melody. one of the best melodies they've made.

Beautiful... One of the best melodies by them: flamenco. Puro, totalmente puro. "Caravana Española"... Un sueño escucharla en vivo

18 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

19 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.

20 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.

21 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

22 Love Street

Why this amazing is so below! It should be in at least top 15.

This is the most beautiful song ever

When I listened it for the first time... I listened it for a whole night the poetry of jim is aesome

This is my favorite doors song, how it it ths low, it's so melodic and beautiful. - MetalPope

23 Soul Kitchen

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

Same, I have no idea why this is so low

Top 10

24 Strange 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!

25 Gloria

Gloria from the live album Alive, She Cried. This is an amazing song one of the best by the doors, it has to be at least in the top 5 guys... - thatguyalex

It may have been a cover, it may have not the greatest lyrics ever written, it isn't even the most poetic sex song ever created, but it's wonderful how it is... What an energy, Morrison! If you want to learn how to scream, you need to listen to Gloria. What a vocal performance! The band is also great. Imagine it live. come on, Jimmy on fire!

One of the best covers of all time. Them's version was good, this was perfect

G-L-O-R-I-A. I don't care if it was never a studio song, I love it just the same. I say it needs to be at least the Top 15! Number 22? Really!?!

26 Been Down So Long

Come on this song is cool the doors were a ballsy blues band to me and this is one of their best love their last two albums so cool

27 The Unknown Soldier

I think this one should be much higher. Well written, great guitar, awesome vocals. It would be one of the best flowing, well constructed and brilliantly delivered song of all time. Unborn, living, living, dead. I have that line tattooed on me.

One of the best anti war songs of all time

I can't believe this and "Who Scared You" are so low… those are both top 20 material. - PetSounds

28 Moonlight Drive

My favourite song of The Doors, even if is impossible to say which is the best song... All of them are masterpieces...

This song has the best lyrics in rock & roll

The best night driving song with a girl

29 The Changeling

There most underrated song in my opinion. One of my favorites coming from a die hard fan.

The guitar solo in the middle of the song is one of the best sounding things ever

Robbie's guitar at the start of this song is simple but amazing.

Beloved piece. opens a great album

30 Hyacinth House

Another underrated song. The 12 string is gorgeous and the vocals are great. Jim really shines in this track.

May be the best example of the male voice ever recorded

What a song, this song gives me a high each time I listen to this

31 Not to Touch the Earth

Phenomenal tune. Most underrated Doors song. Put it on your iPod and go crank out some mileage on the trail.

Good to see this one rated. It's not a typically noted doors song, but deserving of a top 30 spot. Would have been a great track to see live.

Lyrics are brilliant, and this song is a perfect embodiment of chaos. Love it. Also the live versions are far superior to studio

Super scary, but really great

32 Ghost Song

33 The Spy

34 Tell All the People

I added this and I will always love it, it is so unforgettable. How can you call yourselves doors fans.

35 End of the Night

Perfect song (good sound and text)

36 Wishful Sinful

Beautiful, great writing Robbie Krieger

Beautiful and scary, should be in the top 20, at least. So short

I just listened to it ohh my doors this is amazing

38 Shaman's Blues

Shaman's Blues is very catchy! I just love ray's organ. Should be at least in the top 10

This should be in the top 5. Ray and Robby play off each other perfectly and really compliment their style. The solo is perfectly timed and Jims words and vocals are nothing short of brilliant.

Should be in the top 10

Unique. one of the best songs of the doors obviously.

39 Indian Summer

Heartbreakingly brilliant

A very beutiful song that only jim could have wrote

40 You're Lost Little Girl
41 My Eyes Have Seen You

For some reason I find this song cute, is that weird?

Love this song. It's very different from they're other hits

42 Celebration of the Lizard

Is everybody in? The ceremony is about to begin...

You gotta love this song, this is Morrison at his best. Such a shame it didn't make it onto an album. :(

I say this needs to be in the Top 25. Number 41? Come on people!

45? If you like Jim Morrison, this should be your top spot. It's pure genius

Playing this live and the power and energy they put in it is like no other. They take u for a ride, it goes up and then down. They were perfect and meant business doing it! 😀 It was the doors work of art, simply a MASTERPIECE!

43 Twentieth Century Fox

Should be higher than 65 - willminns

44 Runnin' Blue

I like this one, not a top 10 track, but shouldn't be disregarded.

Great tribute for Otis Redding. I think he wouldn't believe it if he saw this song. He couldn't get no

Good song...

45 Blue Sunday

A beautifully written song, very well written guitar pieces, such a beautiful, slow, perfect song. Top 10.

Low on the list such a deep song by Jim Morrison amazing lyrics. - OasisFeelsLove

Maybe the most romantic song written by Jim

46 Whiskey, Mystics and Men

This song is so cool, love it

47 Wild Child

I love this one. Should be a top 10 song. The riff is perfect, bass is great, lyrics brilliant, drums are great, keys are awesome. It's an easy enough song for a beginning muso to pick up and play along to.

With hunger at her heels, freedom in her eyes, she dances on her knees, pirate prince at her side.

This song is great is my favorite!

In my top 5...fantastic

48 The Woman Is a Devil

I think this music is not well known, it should be in the top 10

49 Yes, The River Knows
