“Strange days have found us Strange days have tracked us down They’re going to destroy Our casual joys We shall go on playing Or find a new town” Was not every day a strange day for Jim Morrison who was inspired to write this song when in New York City. Not released as a single, “Strange Days” served as title track for the platinum album that peaked at Billboard #3. The song is so typical Doors with Morrison’s almost mournful voice and Ray Manzarek employing Moog synthasizer. “Strange Days” is trippy 60s.
Band: The Doors Album: The Very Best of The Doors Release date: 2001 Track number: 6 Genre: Psychedelic Rock Lyrics: Strange days have found us Strange days ...

It probably was indeed. We may not approve of his life, but there is no denying he did it "his way."

I saw The Doors in Chicago when I was about age 18. Quite a wild concert it was.

I am so, so shocked. I didn't see this one coming at all. Where did this one come from? (For those of you not familiar with John and me and our banter: this is sarcasm.)

The only Doors track I really know is The End, but this one seems a little bit familiar
