I'm kinda new in here, so the question is - have The Doors been on this band fight? But thanks, for the feeling of 60ies, sometimes it's cool to listen it whole night long, and when you're waking up - feels like waking in one of those american bases in vietnam! Rock On!

Nope... The Doors haven't been in it as of yet... The big reason is that the original poll I ran was something along the lines of "who's your favorite band from the era" with Rolling Stones, Jimi Hendrix, The Beatles, The Doors, CCR and maybe Jefferson Airplane... something along those lines and I think the Doors had more than the rest combined...so when I started the round polls I decided that the Doors would be the champions to unseat at some point but when, I have no idea... LOL I keep getting other suggestions for groups or finding new ones to add and never really get down to a final round.  I have considered running 3 or 4 polls at the same time in message threads.

I started off weekly

My most listened list of the doors vietnam early era:

Break on through (to the other side)
Soul kitchen
I looked at you
Take it as it comes
You're lost little girl
Unhappy girl
Moonlight drive
People are strange
The unknown soldier

Most listened to Doors song after the release of Apocalypse NowThe End  Shocked

Yes, no doubt The Doors are a big part of the Vietnam soundtrack.  I remember (ALERT:  old dude war story coming up) walking into our freshly-built, homemade company EM club for the first time after getting off duty.  The Doors were playing on a reel-to-reel tape recorder and blaring Break On Through ... through some big stereo speakers.  What therapy.  A beer in one hand, (tobacco) pipe in the other - and The Doors carrying me away.  Life was good . . .

Welcome, Paul.

Hey Paul, no problem by me.  I come from the land where we make offerings to our ancestors on a regular basis.  We have little houses in the yard around our houses for spirits to live in.  We believe in ghosts and spirits of all types.  These concepts are not beyond my understanding.

Hyuk-hyuk. Roll Eyes No, but I did show the spaghetti westerns there.  I was the projectionist for flics shown at midnight after the swing trick (shift) in our RR company.  I got paid in beer and mockery and derision whenever the film would skip, jam, or break.  Later, we expanded that screen for Cinemascope after I got an anamorphic lense for the projector.  So, there, you have it.  Appreciation of fine film was alive and well among the RR troops in the Nam (I also showed Barbarella - hot stuff, before she turned commie traitor).
