In 2014 KAREN O – flamboyant frontwoman of splendid alt rockers Yeah Yeah Yeahs out
of New York City – released a solo album titled Crush Songs filled with personal emotions.
When I was 27 I crushed a lot. I wasn’t sure I’d ever fall in love again. These songs were written & recorded in private around this time. They are the soundtrack to what was an ever continuing love crusade…” she explained in an interview. One of the moving pearls on the record is a cover of The Doors’ sweet little song INDIAN SUMMER. I found this really touching live rendition – Berlin, 9th September, 2014 – on YouTube. Just magnificent…

I like you the best
Better than all the rest
That I meet in the summer
Indian Summer

I like you the best
Better than all the rest
That I meet in the summer
Indian Summer

Indian Summer was one of the first songs recorded – on demo in 1965 – by The Doors. But only released five years later, in 1970, on the Morrison Hotel album. The band never played the song live…
