"Light My Fire" (1967); because Jim Morrison sang this as The Doors first hit, and he was the group's primary songwriter, this is often mistakenly thought by many to have been written by Morrison.

—  Jim Morrison lead singer of The Doors 1943 - 1971

"Light My Fire" (1967). Because Jim Morrison sang this as a breakthrough hit for The Doors and was the group's primary songwriter, this is often mistakenly thought to have been written by him. It was actually written by guitarist Robby Krieger, as were some other songs including "Love Her Madly," "You're Lost Little Girl" and "Touch Me" (as well as some other songs on the Soft Parade album). The second verse of the song, however, was written by Morrison.
