When Jim Morrison died aged just 27 in 1971 in France, he had already left behind an immortal musical legacy as the mystical frontman of The Doors. The band struck gold early on with the release of their eponymous debut album in 1967. Their formula of poetic psychedelic blues struck a chord with the blossoming counterculture of babyboomer USA and soon found its way to foreign shores.

Over the five decades since his death, Morrison’s legacy has been warped increasingly into something mystical and godlike, thanks to his deeply spiritual and enigmatic persona in life and the mystery surrounding his demise.

Fans seeking out the late frontman’s favourite of his own back catalogue will be met with yet another mystery. When asked for a favourite of their own musical creations, some artists are straight to the point, and they can confidently single out a track they’re most proud of. For instance, Liam Gallagher has said for many years that his favourite Oasis song is unequivocally "Live Forever."
