  • Like many tracks on The Soft Parade, the use of outside instrumentation such as horns and strings certainly helps to add another dimension to this track and it just sounds great as well in my opinion
  • Another interesting thing about this track is that Krieger also sings on this track so it isn’t just Morrison
  • Without the use of this outside instrumentation I’d certainly still enjoy this track but I think it’d be a lot more of just a traditional rock song without anything very unique about it

      Runnin’ Blue is a song by The Doors which appears on their album The Soft Parade. The track starts off with Morrison singing by himself which is a tribute to Otis Redding, and also serves as a nice opportunity to hear Morrison’s voice by itself.

      After this, a guitar riff comes in along with an organ which has a very distinct rhythm.

      Like many tracks


      on The Soft Parade, the use of outside instrumentation such as horns and strings certainly helps to add another dimension to this track and it just sounds great as well in my opinion.

      Morrison’s vocal delivery is somewhat aggressive but he fits extremely well with the track.

      Another interesting thing about this track is that Krieger also sings on this track so it isn’t just ...


      • Morrison.

        The horns take over with about a minute left in the song and I personally am really starting to enjoy The Doors’ experimentation with this outside instrumentation as it doesn’t get in the way of the song at all and simply adds another dimension to it.

        Without the use of this outside instrumentation I’d certainly still enjoy this track but I think it’d be

        a lot more of just a traditional rock song without anything very unique about it.

        However, with the use of outside musicians and outside instrumentation, The Doors certainly add that unique dimension to the song and come out with an excellent result in my opinion.

        A quick song but it’s certainly got a lot of good parts from the start to finish, another good track by The Doors.
