Peace Frog (3:00)

Cover of Morrison Hotel

From Morrison Hotel and 34 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”.

    Being from CT, I get a kick out of the New Haven reference. He wasn't too happy there, getting maced by a cop before the show for no reason and later getting arrested on stage circa 1967. Darn those little blue men in those little blue hats!!!

    Listening to the album "Morrison Hotel" released February 1970 and a welcome relief to me and all Doors fans who assumed after the disappointing "Soft Parade" album, the 'Miami Incident' and all the canceled concerts it caused the Doors where over. They were a strong group but Mr Morrison's excessed were way over the top. Saw them in Philadelphia Pa on May 1, 1970 and was totally disappointed by Mr Morrison's drunken performance.
