Wiki

"Light My Fire" is a song written and recorded by American rock band The Doors. They recorded the song in August 1966 and it appeared on their 1967 self-titled debut album. Released as an edited single on 24 April 1967, it spent three weeks at number 1 on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 chart in late July that year.

Puerto Rican vocalist and guitarist José Feliciano enjoyed significant international success when he released his version of "Light My Fire" in 1968 as a single on the RCA Victor label. It is perhaps the best-known cover of this song, reaching number 3 on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 charts, only a year after the original had been a number 1 hit on the same chart. Feliciano's remake blended Latin influences, including a mixture of classic Spanish guitar, flute and flamenco, with American pop. Feliciano's version of the song is played at a slower tempo than The Doors.
