"When the Music's Over"

When the Music's Over is the last track of Strange Days, the second album by the American psychedelic rock band The Doors.

"When the Music's Over" was a staple of The Doors' live shows in 1966, when they were the house band at the Whisky a Go Go on Sunset Strip in Los Angeles. It was not released on an album until a year later. During live performances, Morrison sometimes took artistic liberties and used the live platform to experiment with new material, usually lyrics. The song was often performed as an encore.
