Love Me Two Times (6:54)

Cover of Greatest Hits

From Greatest Hits and 55 other releases

“Love Me Two Times” is a song by The Doors. It was written by Robby Krieger and first appeared on the 1967 album Strange Days. It was released as the second single (after “People Are Strange”) from that album, and reached #25 on the charts in the US.

Ray Manzarek played the final version of this song on a clavinet (the modern-day version of a clavichord), not a harpsichord.

“Love Me Two Times” was considered to be somewhat risqué for radio airplay.

According to band members, the song was about a soldier/sailor on his last day with his girlfriend before shipping out, ostensibly to war (Vietnam).

“Love Me Two Times” is a playable track in the video game Guitar Hero World Tour.

    Harpsichord solo always makes me chuckle. It's just a strange instrument to be called up by Morrison shouting ALRIGHT YEAHHH

    Guitar riff is amazing, and equally as amazing to me is the "bouncing bass" behind it. Incredible song melodically!

    I can't explain how genius the guitar riff is in this song.

    Listening to the album "Strange Days" the second by the band. Released in 1967 with all song writing credited to the entire band. Douglas Lubahn on bass guitar. The album, although reaching #3 on the charts, was considered by the producer, Paul A Rothchild, to be a commercial failure because he expected it would top the Beatles and all others in sales. Remember with all the great music released in 1967 the top selling album in the USA was "More Of The Monkees" by The Monkees.
