I always liked most of the Doors songs, and this is what I found about this one:

From the Wiki article:

According to Bruce Botnick‘s liner notes the song was initially referred to by its various working titles; “I’m Gonna Love You”, from a line in the chorus, or “Hit Me”, a reference to blackjack. The opening line was originally “C’mon, hit me … I’m not afraid”, the line thus reflecting the first person vantage point of a blackjack player.[2] Morrison reportedly[citation needed] changed the lyric out of concern that rowdy crowds at their live shows would mistakenly believe that “hit me” was a challenge to physically assault him.

At the end of the song, Morrison can be heard saying, “Stronger than dirt”, which was the slogan of the Ajax household cleaning company, because the last four notes of “Touch Me” were the same as those in an Ajax commercial and as a mocking criticism of Krieger, John Densmore, and Ray Manzarek wanting to accept an offer from Buick to use “Light My Fire” in a commercial. The deal was aborted when Morrison opposed it. This vocal was omitted on the single version, which was a different mix.

“Touch Me”, by The Doors, can be found on their album, “The Soft Parade”, released in 1968. It was written by Robby Krieger, and is on the Elektra label.

[Intro]

[Verse]
Yeah! Come on, come on, come on, come on
Now touch me, babe

Can’t you see that I am not afraid?
What was that promise that you made?
Why won’t you tell me what she said?
What was that promise that you made?

[Hook]
Now, I’m going to love you
Till the heavens stop the rain

I’m going to love you
Till the stars fall from the sky for you and I

[Verse]
Come on, come on, come on, come on
Now touch me, babe

Can’t you see that I am not afraid?
What was that promise that you made?
Why won’t you tell me what she said?
What was that promise that you made?

[Hook]
Now, I’m going to love you
Till the heavens stop the rain

I’m going to love you
Till the stars fall from the sky for you and I

Till the heavens stop the rain
I’m going to love you
Till the stars fall from the sky for you and I

[Sax Solo]

[Outro]
Stronger than dirt

The first song for the challenge, I have chosen, “People Are Strange”, by The Doors. It was written by Jim Morrison and Robby Krieger, and released in September of 1967. It appeared on the album, “Strange Days”, and was classified as Psychedelic Rock.

I love all the Door’s songs, and have listened to them off and on for years. This is one of my favorites, because I agree…people are strange. I love to just sit and watch people go by, as I imagine what the stories of their lives is like. I wonder what story they imagine of us, as we pass by?
