The Doors - What Do You Think Of This Band?

Somebody somewhere started a discussion of best Album 1, Side 1, Track 1 – ie, the absolute first song ever by a band. For The Doors, it’s Break On Through – and I think it’s a worthy of consideration as GOAT in that category.

It was also the first Doors song I heard… Really opened “the doors” for me in middle school.

I was never expecting a bossa nova beat. And I didn’t know a thing about the band or Jim Morrison, but it was quite an amazing experience, one that I still get. Not many bands/artists have this effect on me over the decades.
