Well, if you dislike my posting style, please feel free to ignore me, but I'd be happy is you continued to comment on my posts.


 

Oh, man I'm trying to do it! Your "A vs. B"  threads are making my cerebrum scream in pain.

 

Anyway, Jim Morrison was not only a poet, but a great one. An by "poet" I mean people who writes and eventually publish poetry books.

I'd like to say "thank you" on behalf of the group and ourselves and I hope we passed the audition. John Lennon

I've literally posted like maybe 4 or 5 "A vs. B" threads... geez, people, what is the big deal?

When I Twish And Shout, it makes the Girl say "What Goes On?", and than I say, "I do this Here, There and Everywhere", and than she finishes by saying "Honey Don't".

Don't worry about it. Let's get back on topic.

Can you give me an example of his lyric craft you like?

Ad hoc, ad loc, and quid pro quo! So little time! So much to know!

John - ex: "Some are dead and some are living, in my life I've loved them all." (From In My Life, as you know)

 

Jim - ex: "Some call it heavenly in it's brilliance others, mean and ruthful of the Western dream. I love the friends I have gathered together on this thin raft. We have constructed pyramids in honor of our escaping. This is the land where the Pharaoh died" From The WASP (Texas Radio And The Big Beat)

 

P.S. I know I put a bigger line in Jim's, but you guys all know about In My Life, and these arn't my favorite lyrics from either writer/singer, but they are damn good ones. John's lyrics are deep and loving (in the exemple) as Jim's tells a tale, it's really hard to compare, but here are some lyrics I enjoy.

It's probably more than we need. As I mentioned elsewhere, you could go on forever comparing Unrelated Thing 1 and Unrelated Thing 2, and it would clog up the forum mightily. Perhaps you could deal with it all in a single thread?

As for Jim Morrison, I loved the Doors when I was younger, and some of their shorter songs still sound great (eg Love Me Two Times). A lot of his lyrics make me cringe now though. His 'poetry' was largely awful IMO ("The blue bus is calling us"; "Ride the snake to the lake"; "mute nostril agony" etc).

Please don't spoil my day; I'm miles away

I fined a lot of people disliking him, but I can't see why, I don't exacatly agree with his life style, but if I could write lyrics like he could I would be writing all day. And for the recored, I don't consider him a "poet", but he has poet like lyrics, of course.

I think he means you can start one thread and call it "hypotheticals" or something like that and just update it whenever you want to. People will see it when it comes back on the main page.

Onto the question, I honestly can't stand the Doors. I used to like them alot and then I decided to buy all of their cd's as I did with the Beatles, and it was just a few months of agony for me trying to get into this moody, annoying band with a lead singer that just comes off as arrogant to me. I think organ is a tough instrument to fit into a rock n' roll group, and they just used it too much and it drove me crazy! Organ only really works for me if its funky.

Organ, never heard an organ? Keyboard, maybe?

 

Ah well, guess no love for The Doors here, well besides me...

I like their "The End". Count me as a kind-of fan.

You visited his grave site, that's the best thing you'll ever do at school. xD.

Jim Morrison is the kind of poet I prefer. I think he had the lyricism of Rimbaud.

I love his poetry, "The Lords : notes on vision", by the way, is my favourite book.

 

And what I mean, again: Morrison was a poet, whatever your opinion of him is.

Umb.. now that's interesting. I think The Doors music is fantastic, but personally I don't like it. I wasn't aware that Morrison actually wrote poetry (not just lyrics for a song) and the mention of Rimbaud makes me feel curious. I'll check it out.

 

Thanks Marcelo!

 "I think the Doors music is fantastic, but personally I don't like it."

 

That's comment I've never heard, I've heard "The Doors, what the f**k kind of band name is that?", I've heard "The Doors, they f**king suck, and if you like them you're stupid."

 

...but what you said was very respectful, so thanks.

You're welcome ;)

 

I own a kind of bilingual "complete poetry" edited here in Buenos Aires, in three volumes.

Ok I have to say this, after posting the message I was like "Ok, why I don't like the Doors?" and I started checking some stuff  : I really really lke Riders on the storm, Light my Fire. (that intro and instrumental part is awesome) and how could I forget Break on Through? That song rocks and I haven't played it enough.

 

But the rest of their music.. I'm in blank. I know I don't like The Doors because like 10 years ago I borrowed a CD from a hard core fan (he went to France just to pour a quite expensive bottle of tequila over Morrison's grave…… on his honeymoon) and I said "Ok, nice…..".

 

But that was 10 years ago. Maybe if I check them again, who knows? I might like it. a-hard-days-night-paul-11

 

Oh and when people tell me "I think you're stupid because you like the Beatles" I say "Well, if that makes me a stupid then I'm a happy stupid" and end of the story.
