Echo & The Bunnymen: People Are Strange

The other day I mentioned Echo and the Bunnymen and my wife thought it was a strange name for a band. This post-punk, pre-alternative band from England had limited success in the US; however, they had a sizable following in their native UK. Their interpretation of the Doors’ classic “People are Strange” is from the soundtrack to “The Lost Boys.” Not a bad version if I do say so myself and very close to the original.

The Doors’ Original

The follow-up to The Doors’ first and most popular single “Light My Fire,” “People are Strange “ was released in the fall of 1967 and peaked the American singles charts at #12. The song was the first of two singles from The Doors’ second LP “Strange Days.”
