Peace Frog (3:00)

Cover of Morrison Hotel

From Morrison Hotel and 32 other releases

“Peace Frog” is a song by The Doors which appears on the album Morrison Hotel. It was released on vinyl in February 1970 by Elektra/Asylum Records and produced by Paul Rothchild. It has a fairly short running time of 2:50 and blends seamlessly into the next track on the album, “Blue Sunday”, making it easy for radio stations to play the two songs consecutively. The lyrics were adapted from a couple of Morrison’s poems, one being entitled “Abortion Stories”.

The hook of the song is a distorted G5 chord played three times by guitarist Robby Krieger, followed by a brief percussive Wah-wah effect. Morrison begins nearly every line with the word blood, often referring to “Blood in the streets… blood everywhere…”. A brief musical interlude is next, followed by a guitar solo, and a spoken word verse (“Indians scattered on dawn’s highway bleeding…”). The song ends with a final chord as it segues into the next track, “Blue Sunday”.
