Song of the week: Riders On The Storm


John Ellis and Sam Jones

Pull out your headphones, take a seat and close your eyes.  This song deserves every last second of your attention. The listener is immediately greeted by a quiet storm that builds until a cacophony of keys descends upon the soundscape. Soon, Morrison’s echoing voice adds a layer of darkness to an already melancholy track. The track offers a unique blend of soul and blues that only the Door’s Ray Manzarek’s eerie organ and Morrison’s silky poetry are able to provide. Re-listen to this timeless classic using the link below.
