The Doors – The Crystal Ship (3:20)
on the album The Future Starts Here: The Essential Doors Hits
“The Crystal Ship” is a song by The Doors from their 1967 debut album The Doors. It was also the B-Side of the number-one hit single, “Light My Fire.” It is regarded as a love song to Jim Morrison’s first love, Mary Werbelo. Like much of The Doors’ work, it sets up an eerie, dark flow. It’s rumored to have been the band’s first long song, especially for Ray Manzarek’s and Robby Krieger’s improvisations, but was changed by When the Music’s Over.
