Light My Fire by José Feliciano


José Feliciano made a career out of covering Light My Fire. Robby Krieger credits him for making the fortunes of the group grow even bigger. It's not every time a cover song surpasses the original or comes close in charting as high as the original. José's cover will always be the king of the hill to over throw.  It was a blessing but also a burden for José. The song reached number one with The Doors the previous year in 1967 and one year later José had the song chart at number three. The longevity of Light My Fire has many legs of success since 1967.  Seems everybody wants to take a stab at peaking higher than José.
