Light My Fire became The Doors' signature song. Recorded in August, 1966, the song was released on their first album in January, 1967 and topped the charts launching them to stardom. Most of the lyrics were written by Doors guitarist Robbie Krieger with Jim Morrison contributing to the second verse. Appearing on The Ed Sullivan Show in 1967, the band was asked to change the line, "Girl we couldn't get much higher" for the TV audience however Morrison sung it anyway claiming nervousness and forgot to change the line. Sullivan didn't buy it and never invited The Doors back.
Formed in the spring of 1970 by guitarist and singer Eric Clapton, Derek and the Dominos made the Top Ten in both the USA and the UK with Layla. The album, Layla and Other Assorted Love Songs is often considered to be the defining achievement of Clapton's career. The song, released in 1970, is about George Harrison's wife, Pattie with whom Clapton was having a love affair. An edited version was released as a single in 1971 that ran for 2:43 and flopped in the charts. The full version at 7:10 was released a year later and became one of the most famous songs in rock history.
