Their result for The Which DOORS song are you? Test ...
END OF THE NIGHT
9 shaman, 0 reveller, 13 exile, 14 nihilist and 0 other
"Realms of bliss, realms of light, some are born to sweet delight, some are born to sweet delight, some are born to the endless night"
You scored highest in Exile and Nihilist ..."End Of The Night" contains definite elements of both. It's a dark, dreary, lethargic song from the first Doors album. It's actually difficult for me to describe, although I CAN tell you that it's sandwiched between a happy teen-pop ditty and an upbeat fast-tempo rocker, so it's in a strange place on the album. But this is one of the things that makes the first Doors album the greatest album they ever recorded -- innocuous teenage rock music side-by-side with murky, obscure, and disturbing dirges such as "End Of The Night" -- which of course makes the dark stuff sound even darker by comparison. This is one of their most brilliant songs, but don't ask me to explain why or how. It eludes any simple description. You'll have to hear it for yourself. I wouldn't recommend listening to it when you're depressed, though. It's one of the deadest songs you will ever hear. Don't look for hope here. This is the music of lost souls.

MY SCORING SYSTEM ... OR A BRIEF EXPLANATION OF WHY ANY OF THIS SHOULD MAKE ANY SENSE WHATSOEVER
I based this test around four of the crucial elements underlying much of The Doors' music, and also what I perceive to be four distinct facets of Jim Morrison's personality. It's not a perfect system but I think there's a certain logic to it that we can apply here (if you have a better way of doing it, be my guest). These four variables are as follows ...
>>> The Shaman is a spiritual guru, the American Indian's "medicine man" who enters into a trance-like state and enacts a ritual to bring his audience to enlightenment. This is an essential quality of songs like "Break On Through To The Other Side" or any Doors song where mystic knowledge is sought after.
>>> The Reveller is a hedonist that alters his consciousness through physical ecstasy -- sex, alcohol, drugs, and so on -- seeking the Palace of Wisdom through the Road of Excess. This is an essential quality of songs like "Light My Fire" or any Doors song about passion and youthful exhuberance.
>>> The Exile is an outcast that has been alienated by his fellow man, an outsider condemned to a lonely and misunderstood existence. This is an essential quality of songs like "People Are Strange" or any Doors song dealing with alienation and rejection.
>>> The Nihilist is an existential cynic that sees Death as the only real Truth. He or she lives life for the moment and objects to laws, tradition, religion, or any other form of social control ... life is too short to worry about other people's rules. The Nihilist is the proverbial Rebel Without A Cause. This is an essential quality of songs like "When The Music's Over" or any Doors song based on discontent and fatalism.
Most Doors songs contain varying degrees of these four principles, although some songs are very strongly inclined towards one of the four. I didn't include every Doors song ever made in this test, but I did try to include most of their best songs, at least insofar as I could fit them into the framework of my crude scoring system. It's far from perfect, but I think it works in a weird sort of way. Hopefully Morrison isn't rolling over in his grave right now. I mean assuming he's actually in there to begin with.
THE END is the exception to the four variables ... you cannot get this song by scoring high or low in any of these variables. You can only score THE END if you look beyond the four variables and see the true essence of The Doors. There's more to The Doors than "the image" of The Doors ... it's not just about a sex symbol in leather pants tripping on acid and saying the word "fuck" over and over. Forget the hype, just listen to the music. It's some of the most unique and innovative and mind-opening music you will ever experience.
