… of our elaborate plans, the end

Whether you choose to believe this is about Jim Morrison breaking up with girlfriend, dropping a ‘snake’ in a road-side bathroom (so big no-one could survive it – hence the end), acid-induced madness or just a sound-track to a movie, this is surely one of the most emotive songs every written. Camus would have been proud of him.
More Doors stuff : L.A. Woman + Riders on the Storm … and if you’re not a Doors fan, you may not know that they’re named after a book (The Doors of Perception) written by Aldous Huxley, whose death is covered in : A Double Date with Death.
