Doors guitarist Robby Krieger wrote this song.
The intro riff was taken from "Asturias," a Classical piece by Spanish composer Isaac Albeniz (1860 - 1909). (thanks, Daniel - St. Brieuc, France)
Krieger played his guitar in a flamenco style. Some parts were processed through a fuzz box.
"Andalusia," which is referred to in the first verse, is the Southernmost area of Spain. It was repeatedly conquered by various groups until it was divided into 8 provinces in 1833.
