“Cars Hiss By My Window”
This is truly one of my favorite late period Doors songs. It has always sounding like skid row blooze with an extra helping of melancholy. Jim Morrison had always wanted to master the blues harp, but never could get the feel for the damn thing. You’ll hear him in early Doors shows wailing away, but all that effort produces awful, out of tune bleats. At the conclusion of this 4th song from L.A. Woman, Jim mimics a Little Walter harmonica line with his voice and just nails it. It’s almost as good as the real thing, which leads me to the video we’re featuring here of YouTube user “Charliemusslewhite” layin’ it down with a an excellent rendition of this almost 40 year old song.
