  • Britt from Boston, MaIf I had to listent o one song for the rest of my life, it would be Indian Summer.
    This song represents my life.
  • Nick from Seattle, Albaniaso beautifull, only jim could write this
  • Karyn from Bend, OrDon't try to understand the underlying meaning - just that it is a beautiful song. It was our wedding song August 4th 1990.
  • Kevin from Ocean Grove, AfghanistanMy favorite band is the doors and i first heard the song on the doors movie by oliver stone since then i have been hooked i showed it to my girlfriend and if we get married that song will be played numerous times
  • Barry from New York, NcThis song was recorded during the sessions for the first album in August 1966. That's why it sounds so different than the rest of the material on the "Morrison Hotel" LP.
  • Valentina from Los Angeles, CaVery basic lyrics,still a good song.
  • Nadi from Adelaide, --'The End' is about Mary Werbelow
  • Mounia from Beirut, Lebanoni believe this song wasn't about Pamela Courson for the simple reason that when Jim wrote this, in 1965, he hadn't met Pam yet. At this time his true love was a fine woman named Mary Werbelow (bad spelling maybe)
    so no it's not about Pam.
    one more thing: Indian Summer was the first doors song i heard, hypnotizing is the least i could say, and this was the begining of everythg ...
  • Nady from Adelaide, Australiai hope its about Pam, it's the most beautiful song i have ever heard. definately going to be my wedding song one day. its so powerful it brings tears to my eyes
  • Naioka from Sptsyltuckey, VaI love this song! It's so pretty, and it makes me want to sing. I can't sing too well, but it sounds nice with this song.
  • Vita from L.a., CaThis Summer, almost went with Lennon's "Love" as our wedding song...last minute my soul said, "Indian Summer"...I went with it, and so very glad I did...For us, it says it all, quite simply, and poignantly...
  • Eric from Maastrichtgreat contemplative song for a hot summer night filled with love, wine and soft music
  • Freddy from Dinuba, CaThis Songs Means a Change from seasons probaly talking about a new love meeting in the summer means happiness and beuty like an Indian Summer
  • Car from Tulsa, OkThis song seems like its about Pam Courson. Is it?
  • Janelle from New York City, NyJim morrison is known for having an interest in native americans.
