Listening to it right now.

He did a bang-up [good] job on this vocally. His voice was strong and did the song justice.

....but as Simon Cowell would put it, "it was like karaoke night"

In other words, good job, but the backing music was pretty much a Doors reproduction.

If Dave had worked with Ed and Ted on this, they could have taken this song to new levels, just like they did with 'You Really Got me'.

It was a total reproduction.

Thats why it kicks ass...

The band used old ass guitars, amps, mics, all of it for that.

not a huge fan of this cd in general, but I really liked his rendition of this tune.

I really, really dig this tune. Not a fan of the keyboard sound because it reminds me of Smashmouth rippin' off and waterin' down the mighty Doors...if Ize jus' listen to the guitar, Ize can get past that, though...it conjurs up some Robby Krieger...I Ain't Lyin'!!!!!!

Peace Frog
Thereís blood in the streets, itís up to my ankles
She came
Thereís blood on the streets, itís up to my knee
She came
Blood on the streets in the town of chicago
She came
Blood on the rise, itís following me
Think about the break of day
She came and then she drove away
Sunlight in her hair
She came
Blood in the streets runs a river of sadness
She came
Blood in the streets itís up to my thigh
She came
Yeah the river runs down the legs of the city
She came
The women are crying red rivers of weepiní
She came into town and then she drove away
Sunlight in her hair
Indians scattered on dawnís highway bleeding
Ghosts crowd the young childís fragile eggshell mind
Blood in the streets in the town of new haven
Blood stains the roofs and the palm trees of venice
Blood in my love in the terrible summer
Bloody red sun of phantastic l.a.
Blood streams her brain as they chop off her fingers
Blood will be born in the birth of a nation
Blood is the rose of mysterious union
Thereís blood in the streets, itís up to my ankles
Blood in the streets, itís up to my knee
Blood in the streets in the town of chicago
Blood on the rise, itís following me

1. Soul Kitchen was a reproduction...

and sorry...it's a song that I don't think Ed and Dave would have "Take to another level." It's a song that needs to stay right where it is...which is why it's still relevent today...

2. Most of you probably know this, or have seen this in the several Doors threads that were started here...Peace Frog is bar none my favorite Doors song...and wouldn't mind hearing Dave's rendition...

but...

still would prefer the original...

lmao cos I've NEVER discussed Doors tunes with you. This 'tis great cos it lumps FOUR of us within the same category. I DO know it about DG, Loons and myself cos we've mentioned it many times prior over the years.

Peace Frog 'tis the shit and the BEST Doors tune ever. WOW!!! It just cracks me up cos like I just said, we've never rapped Doors. Anyway, that song 'tis immaculate. ;) lol

Hey Poj,

What do you think of "An American Prayer?" My bro's and I used to take that with us camping in the desert and trip out. Many years back of course. lol

Yo Max...was it you and I that was just talking about my favorite Doors' song?

I remember having a conversation about it previously with someone...

Now I'm thinking it was you...

American Prayer...

You know...

It was camping with us...I did it in High School, and College...and not with any particular Doors song...but usually a tape with us for sure...

We'd pick 2 or 3 three day weekends...and 1 summer 4 day weekend...

The Doors being remade to me...is like VH getting remade...it can't be...because the singer was so unique to the songs...

Roth wrote lyrics specific to HIM...which is why Hagar shakin' his ass against the record machine sounded fucking idiotic.....

and Dave stayed true to Soul Kitchen...which is why I like it...but I couldn't see ANY doors song being remade by Roth in a VH sort of way...

Hey Poj,

I don't remember if you and I have ever spoken Doors prior but I could be wrong? We tend to go on long NFL rants and on from there, so we definitely could've.

Not to embarrass DG but she was tellin' me once this Doors tune that was her fave but had the title wrong. lmao I was like THAT'S "PEACE FROG!!! And it's the BEST Doors tune ever!!!

I couldn't agree more with your Roth/VH and Morrison/Doors comparrisons. I've used the same arguements in the past. I'll say the same about Jagger with The Stones. You take those singers away and I don't care how good the music is and it just doesn't work. They're beyond elemental to what makes/made the aforementioned bands off the map.

Yeah, taking "American Prayer" was MANDITORY when my buddies and I would go mountain biking and camping in the desert. After long days, we'd eat magic mushrooms, drink beers around the fire and listen to Morrison and lots of Doors. See, my friends and I were never the "hippie" type kids. We were more "jocks" but we still digged trippin' out. lol We just listened to cool music and not Grateful Dead and stoner music like that. lol

I also agree about Dave doing "Soul Kitchen" justice. He didn't stray too far from the song's initial vibe. He DID however put a bit of a "Dave" spin (which I happened to love) with the " Yo Kemosabe, here's somethin' that will take you into the spirit world" and it was classic Dave both representing and giving Morrison props. Loved that angle. :cool:

I wouldn't ever wanna hear Dave tackle Doors tunes like "The End, "Five to One" or stuff like that. However, stuff like "Roadhouse Blues" or "Alabama Song" could be cool.

I liked the fact that Dave did the "Diamond Dave" album as a tribute to songs that HE loved singing as he grew up. I never knew he was a Morrison fan? It's cool though that he is and like I've also said many times prior, friggin' Dave and Morrison are BEYOND legendary frontmen and could never be "replaced." Way too much uniqueness from them.

I never listened nor gave a shit to that "Doors 2000" or whatever the fuck they called it with that wannabe Morrison from The Cult, I think? :confused: That's just fucking dumb.

Thanks Max...I am going to jump off a bridge now.:o



I can't imagine why I thought that tune was called "Blood in the Streets"???

silly me... I should have guessed "Peace Frog"...it makes all the sense in the world. LOL. :D

Now don't do that cos I know you'd derive a lot more pleasure from throwing me off of one. :p Just make sure you're wearing a tank top before hand. That way and before I perish, I can happily die knowing that a purdy lady with stellar biceps ultimately caused my untimely demise. lol ;)

Dunno? However, I'm pretty sure you were thinking about beating me up or something along those lines when you were listening to the song. :eek:

Don't feel too badly cos I always thought the song was called "Peace Goat???" :confused: :p

The 21st Century Doors? Ian Astbury? Gimme a break. No thanks.

However, if Dave and the boys had decided to cover the Doors back in the day.....

I think they could've Halenized Love me Two Times, Roadhouse Blues, Peace Frog (too underrated), LA Woman, Twentieth Century Fox, Back Door Man, and Take it as It Comes.

But yes, there are some Doors songs that simply cannot be covered by anyone else, much like nobody should in their right minds - including the Punks - cover exclusively Davey gravy tunes like Simple Rhyme, Hear About it Later, On Fire, Take Your Whiskey Home, Girl gone Bad, etc.

The End, People are Strange, Waiting for the Sun, Riders on the Storm, Break on Through, Hello I Love You, Texas Radio and the Big Beat, and many others...far too Morrison-esque to replicate.

BTW, is there a Kinks thread around here? There oughta be. One of CVH's major influences - above and beyond the goddamned cover on the 1st album - in fact, one might argue their 3 greatest influences were Zep, Cream, and the Kinks.

Would've been cool to see Dave and Ed cover Give the People What they Want.... Low Budget...Around the Dial...Attitude...Lola...All Day and All of the Night...

There's one here. (http://www.rotharmy.com/forums/showthread.php?s=&threadid=32654)

I agree...cuntplete riffage from the Davie's bros.

Maybe they'll bust this one out on the BOV5?

Woke up this morning, started to sneeze
I had a cigarette and a cup of tea
I looked in the mirror what did I see
A nine stone weakling with knobbly knees
I did my knees bend press ups touch my toes
I had another sneeze and I blew my nose
I looked in the mirror at my pigeon chest
I had to put on my clothes because it made me depressed
Surely there must be a way
For me to change the shape I'm in
Dissatisfied is what I am
I want to be a better man

Superman Superman wish I could fly like Superman
Superman Superman I want to be like Superman
I want to be like Superman
Superman Superman wish I could fly like Superman

Woke up this morning, what did I see
A big black cloud hanging over me
I switched on the radio and nearly dropped dead
The news was so bad that I fell out of bed
There was a gas strike, oil strike, lorry strike, bread strike
Got to be a Superman to survive
Gas bills, rent bills, tax bills, phone bills
I'm such a wreck but I'm staying alive

[Look in the paper, what do I see,
Robbery, violence, insanity.]

Hey girl we've got to get out of this place
There's got to be something better than this
I need you, but I hate to see you this way
If I were Superman then we'd fly away
I'd really like to change the world
And save it from the mess it's in
I'm too weak, I'm so thin
I'd like to fly but I can't even swim

Superman Superman I want to fly like Superman
Superman Superman wish I could fly like Superman
Superman Superman wish I could fly like Superman
Superman Superman I want to be like Superman
Superman Superman I want to fly like Superman

A classic. Low Budget's one of their best LPs.

I guess Ray's touring solo these days since Dave had a stroke or something?

Isn't he opening for the Pretenders on their current tour?

One of my favourite Kinks tunes nah:

Death Of A Clown

My makeup is dry and it clags on my chin
Iím drowning my sorrows in whisky and gin
The lion tamerís whip doesnít crack anymore
The lions they wonít fight and the tigers wonít roar

La-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la
So letís all drink to the death of a clown
Wonít someone help me to break up this crown
Letís all drink to the death of a clown
Letís all drink to the death of a clown

The old fortune teller lies dead on the floor
Nobody needs fortunes told anymore
The trainer of insects is crouched on his knees
And frantically looking for runaway fleas

La-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la
Letís all drink to the death of a clown
So wonít someone help me to break up this crown
Letís all drink to the death of a clown
La-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la
Letís all drink to the death of a clown
La-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la
