riders on the storm

You know what makes “Riders on the Storm” the amazing, haunting song that it is?

Sure, Jim Morrison’s voice and lyrics were incredible. The Doors, three of the greatest rock musicians ever assembled, created a sonic landscape that always went toe-to-toe with Morrison’s lyrics.

But did you ever notice that Jim Morrison laid down a second vocal track in “Riders” over the main one, upon which he whispers along with the primary vocals? A simple trick, putting this song in a class by itself.

Listen to it again… just to hear the whispers. Simply genius.
