A changeling is a mythological creature who is substituted for a human baby. The changeling was usually an outcast.
Jim Morrison may have got the idea for this song from a student film he saw at USC in 1968 called Changeling.
Morrison wrote the lyrics in 1968, but they did not record it until 1970. LA Woman turned out to be Morrison's last album.
This was released as the B-side of "Riders On The Storm."
This rocker was the first song on LA Woman, and also the first song the band recorded for the album. The song was an indication of Jim Morrison's constant transformation.
Rudolf, Bob Dylan and the Singing Dogs all show up in this Fact or Fiction for seasonal favorites.
