Who knew Light My Fire was influenced by Bach?  Do you hear John Coltrane influences in the song?  Do you hear the Latin beat?

Ray Manzarek, keyboardist for The Doors, died a few weeks ago.  I recently listened to an old interview where he talks about the collaborative effort that went into writing their classic song Light My Fire.  It provides a revealing look at the creative process and how truly talented people take seemingly disconnected ideas and reform them into a new whole.
