Well, I started thinking about the lyrics a bit:
“Well, I wanna make love to you tonight,
I can’t wait ‘til the morning has come …”
I’m thinking that Morrison must have had some significant other who was averse to sexual relations in the evening. Certainly, a reasonable interpretation of those lines is that the object of his amorous overtures preferred breakfast to dinner, so to speak. And while I’m all about smellin’ the flower no matter the hour, a consistent behavioral pattern like this (consistent enough that he put it in a song!) just seems … well, a bit odd. Odd enough that we Gladys Kravitz types want to know why.
My assumption is that he, being Irish*, is a hard-drinking man, and would
My god, it’s unimaginable what that woman must have gone through. I mean, I’d want to wait ‘til the morning had come as well.
An extensive search through Interpol’s criminal database reveals no intoxication-related or battery arrests, so maybe Morrison has been able to keep his vices in check. I sincerely hope so. Still, he’s responsible for the phenomenon in which groups of 50+ year old ex-yuppies hopped up on chardonnay suddenly burst into song during the sha-la-la part of “Brown Eyed Girl,” and I’m not sure that even “Into The Mystic” quite makes up for that.
Dead Acorn: It’s well known that you’ve enjoyed a dram or two in your day; further, you once penned, in a song bemoaning a condition causing painful coitus, the following lyrics:Sex hurts, sex hurts, I’m a dyspareunic …
Sex hurts, sex hurts, I wish I was a eunuch …
I find it a bit hypocritical of you to criticize another based on unfounded assumptions about their (ab)use of alcohol and their alleged sexual tendencies.
