The Doors’ Light My Fire is easily their most famous song. The live version of the song that appears on The Doors’ first album set the groundwork for what would become an incredible catalog of work by The Doors. The studio version appeared on The Doors third album, Waiting For The Sun .
The song was written about a relationship between band member Jim Morrison, and a girl that he was pursuing. The lyrics of the song describe a man’s desire to make a woman be interested in him – specifically by setting her free from the trappings of “the day” or everyday life. The song has been covered by many artists since The Doors first released it over 40 years ago, but The Doors’ version is still considered to be the definitive version of the song. The song has been used in several movies and TV shows over the years, and The Doors’ Light My Fire is easily one of The Doors most popular songs.
