    A Strangely Delightful Masterpiece

    Posted
    Galadrielle

    Strange Days is a musical masterpiece, full of eerie songs such as "Strange Days" with the sultry melodies that are so characteristic of The Doors - and the whole 1960's. Jim Morrison's lyrics are hauntingly beautiful and ring of truth, particularly in "People are Strange," in which he says "When you're strange . . . no one remembers your name," and goes on to say that "People are strange/When you're a stranger." Indeed, his lyrics may stand alone as poems, but they are deeply enhanced by the earthy melodies magnificently played by Robby Kreiger, Ray Manzarek, Douglas Rubhan, and drummer John Densmore. Even the upbeat songs are cloaked in a melancholy richness, and, just as Hippie clothes in the 1960's were strange, sensible, and beautiful, there is an other-worldly magic about this album. I enjoy dancing to it, but I also enjoy just sitting (preferably on the ground, as we did in the 1960's) and listening to it. Strange Days is a strangely magnificent classic that I believe belongs in the collections of those who truly appreciate great 1960's rock 'n' roll.

    Many classic songs on this album, including Moonlight Drive, Love Me Two Times, People Are Strange, and When the Music's Over. Released in the fall of 1967, a lot of now "Baby Boomers" were heading to college with a new music direction. The Doors were a shift to pyschedelics from the British Invasion music that had dominated '64 - '66. Nearly 50 years later, this music remains "alive today" for all to listen to.

    A Classic Journey

    The second album by The Doors was intended as a response to the Beatles' White Album. Most would say that it fell short. Yet, Jim Morrison demonstrates his lyrical depth and the band's arrangements were even more complex and mystical than those of Lennon and McCartney.
