Don't you love her madly?
A-don't you need her badly?
Don't you love her ways?
A-tell me what you say

A-don't you love her madly?
Wanna be her daddy?
A-don't you love her face?
Don't you love her as she's walkin' out the door
Like she did one thousand times before?

Don't you love her ways?
A-tell me what you say
Don't you love her as she's walkin' out the door?

All your love
All your love
All your love
All your love
All your love is gone
So sing a lonely song
Of a deep blue dream
Seven horses seem
To be on the mark

Yeah, don't you love her?
Don't you love her as she's walkin' out the door?

All your love
All your love
All your love
All your love
Yeah, all your love is gone
So sing a lonely song
Of a deep blue dream
Seven horses seem
To be on the mark

Don't you love her madly?
A-don't you love her madly?
A-don't you love her madly?

Damn straight.

If you, like me, go way too long between cleaning your glasses, you know the experience of finally wiping them off and putting them on and then blinking in amazement at everything you hadn't realized you'd been missing.

That right there is FLAC.

Sometimes I bump my feed back down to 128k just for the opposite effect. MP3s (and CFLs) served a purpose, but were barriers to enjoying the amazing spectrum of the world that our senses can perceive.
Another doors song that got played to death
This track is sounding great on the FLAC stream .

I haven't listened to this album in a long time but this track, while good-to-great, sounds a bit too jaded and laid-back this afternoon. It's hard to believe that it's the same guy who sang "The End" or "Back Door Man" four years earlier. Paul Rothchild, the band's producer when "LA Woman" came out, called this song "cocktail lounge music."
 
Paul's departure for this album helped yield what I'd call the best album ever recorded in less than 2 weeks
.  LLRP!!

If this is cocktail lounge music, I want that address. 

OK, seriously, I could see this as a tune from the house band in an Amsterdam smokehouse.

Damn!  Not many (non PF) albums from "back in the day" excite my imagination more than The Doors' first and last studio albums.  I'm sure my feelings about this would be different had I experienced it brand new, so maybe I'm better off being born in '77 and enjoying the badassidry (or badACIDry?) that was The Doors.

Anyways, I had to go 9→10 on this track just because LA Woman is in my personal top 10 and hell...I love her madly!!  Long Live RP!!

I tried! Really I did, to get "into" a Doors song but as an adult just now. But can't help the ROFLs at the "To. Be. On. The. Marchs" part.

I was 12, so I had none of the above.  
But I can somehow remember my older brother bringing L.A. Woman home, ripping off the shrink-wrap and dropping the needle.  
He never got into the opening track (The Changeling), but played track # 2 (this one) OVER & OVER & OVER!

Damfinetune.  Brings back gorgeous technicolor memories.

If you're ever in Paris, it's worth a trip to Pere Lachaise Cemetery to visit Jim's grave.

I wonder... If he were still alive, which aged bad boy would he most resemble?
Keith Richards, the Abe Vigoda of rock n roll
Mick Jagger, old but somehow credible
John Lydon, almost commercial yet not quite square
Lou Reed (I know he died in '13), aged gracefully, yet rockin' on
Gene Simmons.... What to say?
Iggy Pop, fringe artist and cruise line jingle auteur

What do y'all think?  Add your example

Just about anything by the Doors sounds great to me.
Next please.
Yes, I do. Why is that Jim?
Just as boring now as back then

Wow!  Decent line-up. Gimme an F! 

I still listen to the Grass Roots (once a year, maybe, but not here, as "Let's Live for Today" is their only cut in the Radio Paradise library, and it's never been played...YET).

Come on, RP, if Tommy James gets a little love here occasionally, can't we find time to spin something like "Temptation Eyes" or "Sooner or Later"?  Maybe I'm just a sucker for 60's power pop...
I love the Doors madly!

I'm so sorry I missed this song, especially on a warm, summer evening. Certain groups belong with certain seasons, and the Doors belong to summer. Driving to work on a late summer night, windows down and a Doors tune blarring from the radio speakers from a weak signal AM station. That's what it's about. Thank you, Bill.
 
Scrolling back again as this played just now, your remark about summer music hit me again.  I would add another group to that category, GFRR.  Not nearly as epic as the Doors, but summer music all the while in the same context.

wasn't enough...

That's not Jim Morrison singing, surely? Sounds like Chas & Dave. Errtcha! 3 from the disappointed Nottingham jury.
Love this album of The Doors !

All the "classic rock" stations run this one into the ground.

Like "Wishful Sinful".
 
So the rest of have to miss out because of your questionable radio station selection?

Yep.
Bon Jovi is in a catergory all by himself (themself).

The Doors are indeed summer music.  It was always summer back then in the OC.

No, no, no... It's a rainy New Orleans afternoon  from the eight track you've squirreled away in your glove compartment.

I agree with you jagdriver about this song being one of the Doors' most mediocre efforts.  Your added commentary is quite interesting.  The group's possible involvement with the mob (they probably provided Morrison and girlfriend Pamela Courson with most of their drugs and booze) shines a new light on the Doors saga.

This track was never a favorite of mine, and it's received far too much airplay over the years on both AM and FM. It's marginal when compared to so many other works (see below) by the Doors that we either don't hear, or rarely hear, here on RP.

Given its HUGE departure from previous efforts, my own take regarding this song—as well as Touch Me—is that Jac Holzman (Elektra founder) was experimenting with positioning Mr. Mojo 'Risin as a crossover solo artist. (If it wasn't Holzman, then someone in a higher position was applying pressure.) While both singles certainly sold very well, I feel this effort was a complete sellout by the the band in general and Morrison in particular.

I also have to consider what "Uncle" Russ Gibb, proprietor of Detroit's Grande Ballroom and weekend DJ on WKNR-FM, told me about the Doors' mafia connection. Of all the artists to appear at venues promoted by Russ, I recall him telling me that he was *very* surprised to see the group show up in a black limo escorted by "heavies."

"Seminal." Get over yourself.

I remember the yellow cellophane across the photo on the LP album cover...amazingly. And I loved her madly.
L.A. Woman... much to love.
This song owns.

The Doors are one of the seminal (look it up folks) bands of their time...Their creativity and personalities were uniqiue & they rocked my generation in the glorious 60s! Call me crazy! But I love them. Spanish Caravan, Unknown Soldier, Roadhouse Blues...ChrisB!
As you said Bill \"A nice little pop song\"

For some reason The Doors sound so good to me in the summer. :dance:
God Bless Jim Morrison!!!
Jim Morrison\'s voice is as smooth as a cinder block going down a stairwell.
I love them, you hate them....too bad for you IMO and too bad for me IYO And it's not only a drug thing....check out the lyrics for Moonlight Drive and you'll see what I mean.
