My Top 50 Favorite Songs: 21

21. "Five to One" by The Doors

I've always loved The Doors. Morrison was a poet, despite the modern naysayer agenda, and the rest of the band were close to genius. (If I had a time machine, seeing The Doors live on the Sunset Strip in their hey-day would probably be top of the list). This song has grown into my favorite song by the band. It could just be that the classic album-cuts, such as "Break on Through," "People Are Strange," and "The End," have been heard by these ears once too much. I don't really know the true reason for my love of this song, it's just my favorite song by The Doors and beautifully and chaotically captures everything about the band I love.
