While lying on my bed of pain I was plugged permanently into Spotify. And while there, I took the opportunity to revisit The Doors – something I’ve done every five years or so since I was a teenager. The point of this exercise is to convince myself that they were ever any good.
I’m happy to report once again that I’ve always been right about them: they’re mostly a load of dreary old shit.
Except, that is, for Hello, I Love You which is just a great little pop song. Like a tarted up version of The Seeds.
The best thing about it, by the way, is those fantastic tumbling drums.
