The End – Classic Rock Pick of the Week

The end of laughter and soft lies, The end of nights we tried to die, This is the end.” It’s the last three lines in The Doors song The End.

This is one of the most haunting songs I’ve ever heard and it is one of those songs I never tire of, no matter how many times I listen to it. Jim Morrison wrote the song and recorded the song in 1966.

The subject of The End was said to be about a break up with a girlfriend, but this song’s meaning can be interpreted in endless ways depending on what you want it to be about. The song was a perfect fit for the Francis Ford Coppola movie Apocalypse Now.’ The Vietnam setting and the haunting sound of The End couldn’t have been a better fit.

It’s is no doubt one of the greatest rock songs ever written and as this week’s Classic Rock Pick, enjoy an amazing performance from Jim Morrison singing The End.
