Very rare French original limited press for jukebox and for promotional business. "Ligfht My Fire" is a shorter and faster version that any other versions. "Crystal Ship" is slower than any other versions. The label is the same as the photo except for the words written below the date (Tirage limité réservé en France aux Juke-Boxes et à la Promotion). A real curious single housed in Elektra label orange sleeve.

A journalist named Joan Didion (if that name means anything to you) once wrote of the Doors 'their music insists love is sex and sex is death and therein lives salvation', for me this theory is proved right in Light my fire due to the second verse, written by Jim Morrison.

the time to hesitate is through
no time to wallow in the mire
try now we can only lose
and our love becomes a funeral pyre

I suppose the only way I can some these ideas up as if I remind myself of a quote from the film Apocalypse now which is 'you either love someone or you hate them' and the fact that if you think about it, sex actually dies at the point of orgasm.

It's a truly great love song without the cheesiness and pretensions of top-forty tripe, it was actually written by the Doors guitarist Robby Krieger which is portrayed in the Oliver Stone film 'The Doors' at Krieger's insistence.

Light my fire is the Doors signature song.
