"People are Strange", Therefore I didn't vote.

I only like a few of their songs. But this is a great song.

Not a big Doors fan but I do Like The End and Crystal Ship. Also a big fan of X's cover of "crystal ship".

Not a huge fan, but if I had to pick a favorite, it would be "Touch Me".

I'd say my favorite is "Alabama Song" - I think it captures the essence of what the Doors were about as well as any of their darker, more frenzied material - and it's a heck of a lot of fun to sing in a German accent (for example, see Ute Lemper's cover).

Say what you want about The Doors being overrated or underrated, but I still think their debut album is a classic from beginning to end. I don't listen to their other albums nearly as often as I spin this one.

from the list "LA Woman". however, as has been stated above, my favorite, by a longshot, is "The End".

Like the majority, The End followed by Riders on the Storm.

Not sure how The End escaped the poll.

I couldn't agree more on both your choice of track and comments on "The Doors" album.

Out of interest, what type of piano produces the sound on the "Alabama Song"?
