  • lyrics by Robby Krieger, music by The Doors (Jim Morrison, Robby Krieger, Ray Manzarek, John Densmore)
  • Robby Krieger: "When I wrote 'Love Me Two Times' I was thinking about the soldiers going out to Vietnam...and how long they would have to be without their girlfriends.  Therefore...Love me two times, I'm going away. That's how that came about. I wanted to write a blues. Whenever the Doors did a blues, we always tried to do something a little different, so I stuck in what's called a circle of fifths. Of course I didn't know it was a circle of fifths at the time. To me it just sounded good."
