** "The Spy" references the title of a novel by Anaïs Nin, ''A Spy in the House of Love''.
* SignificantAnagram: "Mr. Mojo Risin'" = Jim Morrison (''Music/LAWoman'')
* SomethingBlues: "Roadhouse Blues", "Shaman's Blues".
* SomethingCompletelyDifferent:
** 1969's ''The Soft Parade'', which sounded totally different from anything the band had done before - or, for that matter, anything ''any'' band was doing at the time. "Tell All The People" is surprisingly optimistic and religious in outlook, while "Touch Me" features an intense saxophone solo by session musician Curtis Amy (John Densmore's latent jazz influences coming to the forefront at last). "Runnin' Blues" incorporates a Scotch-Irish country fiddle; the title track has a calypso percussionist.
** Also "You Make Me Real" from ''Morrison Hotel'', which is a surprisingly poppy, upbeat song with a "rink-a-lee-tink-a-bink" piano. Music/JerryLeeLewis probably loved it.
* SpokenWordInMusic: "The killer awoke before dawn..." Also "Horse Latitudes", "Celebration of the Lizard" and ''An American Prayer''. Morrison was fond of this in live performance as well. The band members have said that [[PrecisionFStrike sometimes they dreaded what Morrison was going to say]].

** The line "petition the Lord with prayer" sounds like a mockery of that proposition, the way it was said.

* AntiLoveSong: Subverted. Many of the songs written by Jim were true love songs to a girlfriend, his future wife Pamela Courson, with whom he had an extremely volatile relationship.

* PunkRock: Because of characteristics such as the darkness of their music and Morrison's frequent use of the MetalScream they are often considered a {{Protopunk}} band.
