You scored extremely high in Shaman. Your song is Break On Through (To The Other Side). It's one of the most difficult songs to score on this test -- very few people get this one.
This is the first Doors song on the first Doors album. The beginning of The Doors as we know them, it is a song that combines youthful energy with a unique poetic vision ... this is also a good description of the band itself, and some would call this the quintessential Doors song. Running for less than three minutes, it comes in smooth and steady, gains momentum as it progresses, builds up to a crashing roaring crescendo, and then abruptly ends, leaving you to wonder where the hell it went. Yet in that short time, it manages to take you from the known into the unknown, into the strange and otherworldly realm of The Doors. It is probably the most shamanistic song The Doors ever recorded, a musical equivalent of the shaman's ritual for breaking through the barriers of the material world to see what lies beyond. To cleanse the doors of perception and gaze into the Infinite. It is from Huxley's "The Doors of Perception" (an idea borrowed from William Blake) that Jim Morrison came up with the band's name, so in a way, this song epitomizes the band itself. It was the beginning of the strange, unique, incredible journey of The Doors, and of everyone that went along with them for the ride. It's the song that threw open The Doors on the world ... that timeless moment when the bowstring was released and the arrow took flight.
If you actually scored this song, you have a shaman's soul. You've seen and done a lot, and there's still a lot more you want to see and do. You're an active principle, a force of movement in the Universe. An arrow, moving ever onward toward some unknown end.

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.
