Light My Fire

"Light My Fire" is a song by the American rock band the Doors. It was recorded in August 1966 and released in January 1967 on their eponymous debut album. Released as an edited single on April 24, 1967, 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. A year later, it re-entered the Billboard Hot 100 in 1968 following the success of José Feliciano's cover version of the song, peaking at number 87. The song was largely written by the band's guitarist, Robby Krieger, but was credited to the entire band. The single was certified gold by the Recording Industry Association of America in September 1967 for exceeding one million units shipped. As of December 1971, it was the band's best-selling single with over 927,000 copies sold. The single was certified Platinum by the RIAA in September 2018 for reaching 1,000,000 digital units.
