Song #7: “Little Red Rooster”

I’m reluctant to add anything from The Doors to my list of songs that made a strong impression at some point in my life, because Jim Morrison is not the god adolescent white kids seem to think he is. But that’s it, I was an adolescent white kid once and I listened to The Doors.

“You can pick your teeth with a New York joint!” Road House Blues in a good one, too, but “Little Red Rooster” is the most impressive totally raw blues song you’ll probably hear from The Doors. And if you can’t appreciate that blues, well, don’t even talk to me.
