This is undoubtedly going to sound really ridiculous to a lot of people, but:
Remember Showbiz Pizza? It was a pizza chain with animatronic animals, but unlike Chuck-E-Cheese, the quality of the animatronic shows was much higher, and was intended to entertain adults and teenagers as well as children, so the animal band - called the Rock-Afire Explosion - primarily “played” covers of popular songs. The voices and music were recorded by a crew of professional musicians who had serious chops, and the best singer of them all was a guy named Duke Chauppetta, who did the voice of “Dook LaRue”, the animatronic dog drummer of the group.
He and the rest of the Rock-Afire Explosion recorded covers of Light My Fire and Paul McCartney’s My Love which, I swear to God, I prefer to the originals.
Although I like other songs by the Doors, I never cared for LMF. I thought it was a tedious, meandering drag of a song. This cover of it turns it into a punchy, upbeat pop number with just enough of a hard edge to give it a garage-band sound, and the vocals build very gradually in intensity, climaxing in the final chorus which Duke belts out with genuine power and passion that Jim Morrison, frankly, couldn’t have pulled off himself.
As for My Love…just…damn.
