220px-The_Doors_-_L.A._Woman#12 – The Doors – “L.A. Woman” – (1971)

Not the biggest fan of the Doors, but this song is incredible. It’s their best album and probably their best track. Why were songs so long back in the 70s? It seems like half of the songs on this year’s list are over 7 minutes. “Mr. Mojo Risin'” would pass away a few months after this album’s release, making this song one of his final pieces of work. And what a good one.
