” Light My Fire ” is a song by The Doors, which was recorded in August 1966 and released the first week of January 1967 on the Doors’ debut album. Released as an edited single in April, it spent three weeks at number one on the Billboard Hot 100 chart in late July, and one week on the Cash Box Top 100, nearly a year after its recording. It was their breakthrough hit, and is considered their signature song.A year later, it re-entered the Billboard Hot 100 in 1968 following the success of Jose Feliciano ‘s version of the song (which peaked at number 3 on the Billboard chart), peaking at number 87. The song was largely written by Robby Krieger, and credited to the entire band. The single was certified gold by the Recording Industry Association of America in 1967, representing sales of one million units.

A live version was released in 1983 on their album Alive, She Cried, the first of several live albums released in subsequent decades to include the song. “Light My Fire” achieved modest success in Australia, where it peaked at number 22 on the ARIA chart. The single originally reached number 49 in the UK in 1967, but experienced belated success in that country in 1991, when a reissue peaked at number 7. The reissue occurred on the back of revived interest in the band following Oliver Stone ‘s film biopic The Doors. The song is number 35 on Rolling Stone ‘ s list of the 500 Greatest Songs of All Time. It was included in the Songs of the Century list. Jose Feliciano ‘s cover version won a 1969 Grammy Award for Best Male Pop Vocal Performance, the same year he won another Grammy for Best New Artist.
