    Which Doors song (I'm assuming it was a Doors song) says "Blood in the streets, it's up to my ankles"?

    I'm not to hip on this group but I would really like to be.

    The song is "Peace Frog" from the Morrison Hotel album.

    Great song! I think it's about when Morrisson was a kid and saw a car accident on the road that involved a dead Indian. He would come to believe that the Indian spirit occupied his body.

    What a weirdo.

    Always one of my fav Doors songs...actually, one of the few I can still stomach after college.

    I had my version of Peace Frog on a 2 cassette compilation called "Weird Scenes/Inside The Gold Mine". I bought my copy in like 7th or 8th grade, but have never seen it on CD. Anyone have any history on this album?

    "Peace Frog" is a great song, and Mike has the story behind it right. Anyone remember the opening scene of Oliver Stone's The Doors?


    Jarrod,

    Weird Scenes Inside the Gold Mine was relased in 1972, shortly after Jim Morrison's death. It was released on vinyl and cassette, and probably 8-track as well. However, it was never released on CD. I have it on vinyl and cassette, and it is a great compilation. There are a few Doors compilations on CD, but if Weird Scenes ever came out on CD, I'd buy it in a heartbeat.

    I'm kind of partial to 'soft parade' myself for a song that is lesser known. I had two bootlegs from shows in the late 60's from the Matrix. I ended up giving one up to a scottish exchange student that came over as part of a soccer team. The other one I still have is insane. It's on tape cassette. I haven't listened to it for a long time because I no longer have a proper tape player.

    Jim must have been pretty messed up during this show, as many fans of the band know, because Robbit and Ray had to do some of the singing. The playing is trippy as hell. The opening to 'Unhappy Girl' on the organ Ray used is otherwordly good. I wish I could remember the date of the show that I have.

    Dave, "Soft Parade" is an awesome song. It's out there for sure, but it sounds great. When I bought Soft Parade on CD many years back, the only song I knew was "Touch Me", but I came to really appreciate "Soft Parade".
