Song of the Day: The Doors – “People Are Strange”

Today marks the birthday of late keyboardist Ray Manzarek of The Doors, who was born on this day in 1939. This track was written by Robby Krieger and an at-the-time depressed Jim Morrison, whose lyrics are a meditation on how someone who is strange views other people. But this is one Doors song where Manzarek really makes his mark. His playing and solo on this track are memorable indeed.
