Daily Dose of Music History (June 3, 2015): On this day in 1967: The Doors ‘Light My Fire’ was released in the US, where it went on to be No.1 on the singles chart two months later. When The Doors were booked to appear on The Ed Sullivan Show they were asked to change “girl, we couldn’t get much higher”, as the sponsors were uncomfortable with the line. The band agreed to do so, and did a rehearsal using the amended lyrics; however, during the live performance, lead singer Jim Morrison sang the original lyric, after which they were informed they would never appear on the Ed Sullivan show again.
