這篇是介紹"Light My Fire"這首歌的故事。收錄在the Doors樂團第一張專輯

Light My Fire是美國60年代經典樂團The Doors的首張專輯的歌曲。裡面的樂器solo長達5分鐘,唱歌只有2分鐘。這首歌當年登上Billboard榜的冠軍,而整張專輯銷售量也衝到百萬張,使得The Doors成為當代最受歡迎的樂團。


縮短版--沒時間的人直接點這個比較省時間


來自L.A.的The Doors在60年代暴紅,有一次獲邀參加當時最受歡迎的電視節目The Ed Sullivan Show。不過當年民風保守,節目製作人要求The Doors唱Light My Fire的時候要把裡面露骨的歌詞改掉。也就是把"we couldn't get much higher" 改成"we couldn't get much better"。當然表面上樂團是答應了,但是真的演出的時候,不用想也知道主唱Jim Morrison還是秉持搖滾精神唱原本的歌詞,結果製作人氣壞了,把他們其他的演出全部取消。不過這只會讓The Doors更有話題性,知名度更高。


主唱 Jim Morrison。這張圖和這個動作非常有名,是他個人特殊標記


歌詞如下,表面是在講男女尋歡享樂,骨子裡是在講吸毒的暢快。

Light My Fire   by The Doors

You know that it would be untrue
You know that I would be a liar
If I was to say to you
Girl, we couldn't get much higher
Come on baby, light my fire
Come on baby, light my fire
Try to set the night on fire

The time to hesitate is through
No time to wallow in the mire
Try now we can only lose
And our love become a funeral pyre
Come on baby, light my fire
Come on baby, light my fire
Try to set the night on fire, yeah

The time to hesitate is through
No time to wallow in the mire
Try now we can only lose
And our love become a funeral pyre
Come on baby, light my fire
Come on baby, light my fire
Try to set the night on fire, yeah

You know that it would be untrue
You know that I would be a liar
If I was to say to you
Girl, we couldn't get much higher
Come on baby, light my fire
Come on baby, light my fire
Try to set the night on fire
Try to set the night on fire
Try to set the night on fire
Try to set the night on fire


Live版,內有精采solo

Jim Morrison和Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin是60年代美國最閃耀的三顆巨星,但是也都英年早逝。有他們三個在當代立下基礎,美國70年代從英國手上接下流行音樂龍頭的棒子,成為流行音樂的重鎮。
