Morrison’s vocals are doubled throughout, and often talk to each other on separate channels, giving the fuller meaning much to contemplate, especially after the hook section halfway through the song. Genre: Psychedelic Rock. Kreiger’s “Runnin’ Blue” is a complete left turn and one of the strangest Doors songs ever (and that is saying something!). Light and beautiful, the orchestral arrangements on this song are finer than anywhere else especially due to the English horn lead by Champ Webb. It’s all blatantly subjective, but I think The Soft Parade is on par with the balance of Doors work. Stand alone for me. 3.5 great.

Like the opener, “Touch Me” contains rich orchestral arrangements by conductor Paul Harris. You know he did his own vocals for most of the performance scenes right?

The fourth single from the album, “Wishful Sinful” was a minor hit on the charts. Album Rating: 2.0The Doors have a very interesting history, I'm glad I chose to include parts of the documentary as a backstory in this. Overall this cd can be very cheesy and if it were not for songs like Soft Parade and Wishful Sinful this would be much lower rated. Alternately maddening and compelling, 'Rock Is Dead' is worth the price of admission. The song is most interesting due to the sheer un-Doors-ness of the track in total and the climax at the end of the second verse with slight melodic variation and quick Kreiger solo. I think the writer was misguided. Kreiger performs a whining guitar riff throughout and blues later solo while Densmore’s odd-measured drumming keeps the song interesting yet glued together, especially during his inventive fills.

The weakest studio album recorded with Jim Morrison in the group, partially because their experiments with brass and strings on about half the tracks weren't entirely successful.

Those two and Shaman’s Blues basically save this whole cd. is one of my fav Doors song The exact meaning of these lyrics (and the song’s protagonist) has been debated for decades, ranging from Arthur Rimbau to Jesus Christ to Morrison himself. That beautiful baritone… Kreiger’s vocals on Runnin’ Blue remind me of something from The Simpsons – and always make me smile…The title track itself is so ‘happy’ and light in places…more like a compilation of unused song parts, but it’s clever and works well..a bit reminiscent of Leonard Cohen.The Doors left us with six wonderful LP’s that should never be overlooked or under-estimated.

The Soft Parade wasn’t the end of The Doors, but it was certainly the beginning of it.

I’ve found every Doors album has its own distinct flavor and they are all excellent in their own way. The Rolling Stone review from 1969, at the time of the album’s release, was over the top. It was and remains the Doors’ most controversial release. Title tack is a bit self-indulgent, but what’s rock and roll without a little mad grandiosity now and then? It be fixed. Just treated myself to a lovely 180gram copy of this, and it has so much energy, possibly born out of the frustration The Doors found themselves in at this period.

It starts with a deep rock riff and hook chant but soon Kreiger’s guitar morphs into a bluesy slide riff as the song breaks into several inventive parts in an asymmetrical journey guided by Morrison’s fantastic and philosophical lyrics. I feel the Doors have kept their music guarded with love and alive for every generation to get to know them and turn on to their great music. The Soft Parade is the most controversial album The Doors ever made while Jim Morrison was alive. Here, the quality of the band’s music is further displayed as the Doors concentrated on making great music despite the external distractions of 1969.

The bonus material, such as 'Push Push' shows that even when they were jamming something out, their consummate musicality, and the sheere joy they seemed to get from playing as an ensemble really comes out. As the album itself is such a diverse musical adventure, it is only fitting that the concluding title song reflect this path to the extreme with its own adventurous mini-suite. A collage of vintage clips, interviews and musical performances by The Doors, mounted by Ray Manzarek and, among other things, showing Jim Morrison's charming side. From these initial sessions came a very successful Top 5 single (“Touch Me”/”Wild Child” in December 1968). “Push Push” is a jazzy Latin instrumental jam featuring Manzarek on piano and drummer John Densmore.

The Soft Parade, an Album by The Doors. The Doors The Soft Parade. However, this track is much different, an almost child-like wonderland movement that goes through each distinct phrase until reaching the rock and soul-influenced final parts (“the best part of the trip”) Much like a true “parade” of an English fugue, the song morphs from Morrison’s a capella sermon-like intro to a Baroque ballad to a show tune-like section to the long rock outro, the music masterfully follows the flowing, stream of consciousness lyric. After the revolutionary impact of the band's first two LPs, The Doors and Strange Days , and the commercial consolidation of the band's popularity on the third, Waiting for the Sun , Soft Parade was perceived as a fall from grace. YOU CANNOT PETITION THE LORD WITH PRAYER The song is also a light tribute to the late Otis Redding and was another non-charting single from The Soft Parade.
