Anagram for ‘Jim Morrison’ = Mr. Mojo Risin’
Good, but Andy Kaufman turning into Elvis is my favorite.
Followed by Belushi doing Joe C.
Belushi doing Joe Cocker was another all-time best, agreed! Looked like a real seizure during the song. LOL
I am a huge Doors fan. That was spot on. Thanks for posting.
Aw hell no ping.
That WAS impressive!
‘The Doors Live at the Bowl ‘68’ was on public television station the other night and I DVR’d it! Jim Morrison could give Frank Sinatra a run for his money had he chosen to sing serious ballads.
He does a lot of impersonations dead on. He does the best Neil Young impersonation I ever heard in my life. If you heard it by sound alone it would be impossible to tell which is which
Great performance. Children’s literature doesn’t normally get a lot of attention from rock singers.
It was a huge loss when he died. :(
His singing voice was far better than that of most rockers at the time.
Google “The Soft Parade” band.
Dude is dead on.
Sinatra actually had great respect for Morrison's vocal ability. He was a fan.
Interesting.. I didn’t know that. Sinatra just had that certain somethin’..
Morrisons music was decades ahead of it’s. Fallon nails it.
Yep, that was a remarkable “Soft Parade” sound.
Thanks for posting...lightened up the day.
Are you familiar with Phantom’s Devine Comedy?
Doors fans usually like this as well. (At least they did in the mid 70s)
The entire album is quite good (1974).

Guess I'm decades behind 'cause I think Morrison sucks. From the comments already here, I'm sure I'll be told what a great poet he was, and how I'm just too stupid to get it.
Every Doors song sounds the same. Morrison's fame is deeply rooted in the fact that he OD'd. Had he not done so, he'd be some long forgotten hack trying to keep relevant by coming out every now and then with a bold declaration to save the earth, the whales, the polar bears, or calling for wealth redistribution, etc.
Big fat dead guy in a bathtub.
Not bad. Not bad at all.
He has to be lip-synching.
You probably hate Led Zeppelin, Rush, Hendrix, ELP too? I was never into The Doors back in the '60's but compared to the utter GHETTO AUTO-TUNE GARBAGE being sanitized in recording studios today, he is one of rock's greatest. When I was just a kid, I had a Doors 45 record with the title track 'Riders On The Storm' and I loved that song. I didn't even know who Jim Morrison was but I loved that song.
One of the most imaginative and COMPLEX bands back when REAL music was made was GENTLE GIANT!!!! Enjoy!
"I get no kick from Champagne,
Mere alcohol...it doesn't move me at all.
So tell me why...should it be true?
That I get a...kick...out of you."
Harry Connick Jr. sort of has a touch of that somethin'...but Sinatra? He da man.
His Tebow/Bowie was HYSTERICAL!!!!!
I still can’t believe how much he can mimick voices.
Wow, that was great........
Most of the songs that were hits were not written by Jim but by John Densmore and Robby Krieger (the drummer and guitarist)
It's people like Morrison that lowered the bar for people like Bieber.
"When I was just a kid, I had a Doors 45 record with the title track 'Riders On The Storm' and I loved that song."
Most kids would; it was written to appeal to that demographic.
Lip synching to who? You think Jim Morrison recorded a kids show song that was produced in the 80’s?
It’s people like Morrison that lowered the bar for people like Bieber.
Ok, I just don’t even know how to respond to this. Seriously.
Nah, he wasn't a poet but the band was one of the best in their day......To each their own I guess.
Yep, it appealed to me and my military buddies too..........
Only if Morrison sang the theme song to Reading Rainbow.
As a huge Doors fan since the ‘60s, I have to say, that is an astonishing impersonation. Wow..!
Coincidentally, we (me, my wife, and my son) were talking last night and comparing Jimmy Fallon with Jimmy Kimmel. We all agreed Fallon blows Kimmel away.
And Piscopo doing Sinatra.
Joe Piscopo... forgot about that one!
(for real Doors fans)
Our Field Trip
by James Morrison
Mrs. Roman’s 7th Grade Spanish Class
Our class, Brother Timothy’s and Sister Therese’s went to the Natural History Museum and nature hike last Wednesday. We all had different colored buses for each class in our caravan, ours was blue, and had to bring a sack lunch for the nature hike because it was a long walk (seven whole miles.)
Our bus driver must have been new because he took the wrong turnoff and got lost. I got into trouble the first time by saying to Mrs. Roman that we should ask a stranger where we were. She told me that we were in a bad neighborhood right at the edge of town and that I should sit down and stop bothering her.
We got back on the Meyer Airport Flier Highway after our driver went into an “Adult Club” called the “Gold Mine”. Mrs. Roman said we should never go into such places because we would see all the weird stuff they do there, and that he was only there to ask directions, but it still took a half an hour before the man came out the back door.
It was really hot in the school bus and all the kids were misbehaving, not just me, and the driver tried to take everybody’s mind off of it by talking about the really old glacier lake we were passing. Crystal lake used to have a summer camp with a ship but they closed it down after some counselors were killed there. The lake was low because the summer rains were late and it kind of stank.
When we got the museum, all the boys wanted to see the dinosaurs and the girls wanted to look at the Neanderthal woman holding her hairy baby. People are strange. The dinosaur looked real and Mrs. Roman got mad because I wanted to see what its skin felt like and touched it even though it had a “Do Not Touch” sign. Its skin felt cold.
I kept thinking about the dinosaur as we went on the nature hike. If the path was straight instead of snaking everywhere it would only be a mile or two. I wish I had my bicycle instead of having to walk it. Halfway through we had to stop for lunch and I got really mad because my mother had given me a sardine sandwich and I hate sardines. So I started shouting and when Brother Timothy grabbed my arm I kicked him and I’m sorry. I also got a blister and was stung by a Texas sized wasp, which really hurts and it made me grouchy. I was tired and just beat and wanted to listen to the big radio.
When we got to the end we were late and the bus drivers were calling to us again that we had to go. When we got back to school, Mrs. Roman made me go around to every 7th Grade Homeroom and apologize to everybody and then go to the Mother Superior’s office and apologize to her and she made me write this report to say how sorry I am and I will never forget this field trip.
Well, in all fairness to you, your military buddies and Jim Morrison, if Reagan and Cap Weinberger hadn't clamped down on pot smoking in the military before I joined, I might have found myself enjoying the Doors as well.
Interesting stuff. I will have to find out more. Thanks.
I’m not smiling.
(But then ... I rarely do.)
"and may God's love be with
you me.." LOL!
I met a guy who was in Nam and he said his unit had a pet monkey that they would take in their jeep and they’d smoke pot and the monkey loved to get high. It’s no wonder we had a tough time there.
The monkey probably liked the Doors, too.
I know exactly what lowered the bar in music but I can’t say it here.
If he’d imitated his death, I’d have tuned in.
>”The Doors Live at the Bowl 68 was on public television station the other night”<
I was there. Damn I’m old.
