Here's a post-Morrison tune from The Doors, which isn't something you hear very often, at least not on the radio. In this song, keyboardist Ray Manzarek takes on the vocal duties, and while a little campy with his delivery, it works for the song. While it doesn't really live up to their work before Morrison's death, it's definitely catchy and features a member of the band besides Morrison singing, which was rare, considering how recognizable is voice was. Unfortunately, Manzarek passed away this year at the age of 74, but he also left us with a lot of great musical contributions that continue to entertain us to this day. If you're interested in learning a bit more about Manzarek and his role in The Doors, there's a good article right here about some of his life's accomplishments:
