“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.
