Friday Night Videos

Ray Manzarek, keyboardist for the Doors, died this week. This fascinating interview with him aired on NPR today, which really got me thinking about Light My Fire. It's amazing how Manzarek describes the song's evolution from a saccharine, Sonny & Cher pop ditty to one infused with a Latin beat, jazz elements and even Bach. I'd never noticed all of that before, but once Manzarek points them out, it's impossible to miss.

Previously on Friday Night Videos... Chris Hadfield.
