The Most Awesomest Song of the Day: “Cars Hiss By My Window” by The Doors!!!

Here’s a link to the complete list:

I want to emphasize mostly, relatively newer music, just like on my Monday night show, “Prime Time Theme Attic.” (Monday nights 8PM-10PM ET when it returns.)

Here’s the link for when that day comes: )

But I can promise this: I will not force my selections. If something doesn’t hit me, I won’t post one.

Everything I do has always been about shining a spotlight on the artist and their music.

Now I will have the potential to shine 365 more spotlights if I want to!

Please share the post to help spread the word!

Regardless of everything going on in the world that is way more important than my daily post, I will continue, nonetheless, in case someone is looking for a few minutes of respite.


I’m trying to fit in all of my favorite summer songs before it ends!

For a short span of time, probably longer than The Who, The Doors [Hall of Fame] were my favorite artists, ahead of The Beatles! [Hall of Fame]

“L.A. Woman” was a major reason for that!

The album sounded like it was mixed better than any album I owned at the time!

Back then–I don’t know if it’s any different now, the pressing of the album was better if it was the first press off the master. I figured I must have gotten one of those!

Besides the well known songs on “L.A. Woman,”  as usual, I always liked some of the “lesser” songs more!

Today’s selection is a song that I bonded with years ago on a hot summer day.

I was home by myself killing some time listening to “L.A. Woman.” 

To be truthful, I initially never cared for “Cars Hiss By My Window.”

The Doors had always embraced the blues, but it had always been disguised as a rock song.

There was no separation from the blues on this one.

This was a slow walking blues including a John Lee Hooker like keeping time tapping foot!

Muted instruments including brushes on the drums, it was astonishing in its simplicity!

I remember the front kitchen window was open and the drapes were dancing softly in the sweltering breeze. I was lying down and listening to the music on the sofa.

The mood felt just like the song!

The blues. Raw. Just like it was intended.

I almost jumped out of my skin when I first heard Jim Morrison do that vocal impromptu guitar solo!

Here’s a shout out to a lesser known Doors song!

And I always think of it on a slow, hot, sunny afternoon!

The Most Awesomest Song of the Day is “Cars Hiss By My Window” by The Doors!!!
