'Wintertime Love'  The Doors

"You are so warm"

'Waiting For The Sun' (studio 1968) van The Doors met songs als het liefdevolle 'Love Street', het melancholieke 'Summer's Almost Gone' (kijk hier) en het hoopvolle en verlangende 'Wintertime Love'. Jim Morrison zou bij het schrijven van deze gevoelige nummers sterk geïnspireerd zijn door de liefde die hij koesterde voor Pamela Susan Courson.
Opmerkelijk is overigens dat de titelsong 'Waiting For The Sun' niet op dit album staat.

Wikipedia:
Waiting for the Sun has been generally well received by critics, though with most citing it as a step down in quality for the band's earlier records. Jim Miller of Rolling Stone wrote, "After a year and a half of Jim Morrison's posturing, one might logically hope for some sort of musical growth, and if the new record isn't really terrible, it isn't particularly exciting either."

In his retrospective review, Richie Unterberger of AllMusic wrote, "The Doors' 1967 albums had raised expectations so high that their third effort was greeted as a major disappointment. With a few exceptions, the material was much mellower, and while this yielded some fine melodic ballad rock [...] there was no denying that the songwriting was not as impressive as it had been on the first two records." In his review of the 2007 reissue, Sal Cinquemani of Slant wrote "Despite the fact that Morrison was becoming a self-destructing mess, Krieger, Ray Manzarek and John Densmore were never more lucid -- perhaps to compensate. This was a band at its most dexterous, creative, and musically diverse …"

On the cover of the album, Jim Morrison is seen wearing Glen Buxton's black sweater. Having been intoxicated the night before the shooting of the cover photo, the next morning Jim "started freaking out because the band wanted a picture of them at dawn, and he didn't have enough time to go home and get his clothes".


'Wintertime Love'  The Doors

Wintertime winds blow cold to season
Fallin' in love, I'm hopin' to be
Wind is so cold, is that the reason?
Keeping you warm, your hands touching me

Come with me, dance, my dear
Winter's so cold this year
You are so warm
My wintertime love to be

Wintertime winds, blue and freezin'
Comin' from Northern storms in the sea
Love has been lost, is that the reason?
Trying so desperately to be free

Come with me, dance, my dear
Winter's so cold this year
And you are so warm
My wintertime love to be

Come with me, dance, my dear
Winter's so cold this year
You are so warm
My wintertime love to be
