Their result for The Which DOORS song are you? Test ...
LIGHT MY FIRE
9 shaman, 19 reveller, 4 exile, 6 nihilist and 0 other
"The time to hesitate is through, no time to wallow in the mire ... try now we can only lose, and our love become a funeral pyre ... come on baby light my fire, come on baby light my fire, try to set the night on fire!"
You scored extremely high in Reveller. Your song is Light My Fire ... it couldn't be anything else. It's one of the most difficult songs to score on this test -- very few people get this one.
What can I even say about this one that hasn't been said before? My second favorite Doors song ever, and the biggest hit single The Doors ever had. In fact, probably the most famous Doors song of all time.
Grace Slick once called this song the closest anyone ever got to putting sex on vinyl.
This is The Doors' Dionysian masterpiece of physical love, of flesh made music. It is amazingly vital, amazingly alive, like carnival music from an eternal carnival where youth never fades. It is seven minutes of immortality. And this is no "Jim Morrison song" either. Originally written by guitarist Robby Krieger, all four of The Doors were behind this one. Not surprisingly, since the entire seven minutes has almost no lyrics and is pure music ... pure, incredible, amazing music ...
A single loud bang on Densmore's snare drum.
An unforgettable and incredibly catchy opening organ riff by Manzarek.
Morrison sensuously singing two bars of the now-famous lyrics.
A long, rambling, unpredictable, amazing organ solo that's all over the place at once.
One of the most unbelievable guitar solos you will ever hear in your life.
Morrison singing the final lines, his voice swelling with intensity as the music builds and builds, rushing to the orgasmic climax -- " Try to set the night on ... FIRE !!! "
Release. Ecstasy. Completion.
Only someone truly alive and in love with life could score Light My Fire on this test. I myself could never do it, unless I deliberately cheated. I envy you. Seriously.
Now stop reading my stupid bullshit and go play this song. Preferrably while fucking someone if possible, which is the best way to listen to it. Trust me on that one. :-)

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.
