Yes, he sounds better than the Doors; but I never liked the Doors. The lyrics (as usual for Al) are just great but I get bored of this song about halfway through.
This is one of a series of new songs he's releasing as singles (sort of) as opposed to an entire album at one time. The previous one, 'Whatever You Like' was much better and funnier, IMO, and definitely better than the song it parodied (which had the same name!).

Here's that song, funny as hell, though it's really just the music, not an official video (there wasn't one for that).

Actually, the song is almost too truthful!

I was never much of a Doors fan, but I absolutely love Al Yankovic (hardly surprising, right???). I think this is hilarious and have sent the link to a lot of friends who know how I feel about the Doors. I saw them all the time in LA...and this is a great parody.

I think Weird Al is a brilliant parodist. He also has a killer band and puts on a great show (just ask TonySTL) with costume changes...the whole enchilada!

And though I didn't care for most of the Doors output, I did like Manzarek and still like "Solar Boat" from Golden Scarab. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rIAEBlmwZpE

No one asked, but I give it a Image
