"Wishful Sinful" is a song written by Doors guitarist Robby Krieger and performed by The Doors. Released in March 1969 from the band's fourth album, The Soft Parade, "Wishful Sinful" follows the general theme of the album by incorporating elements of classical music. It reached No. 44 on the Billboard Hot 100 in 1969.

The single peaked at No. 3 in Denmark and stayed in the Top 10 for a month.[1]


The B-side of the single - "Who Scared You" - is one of only three non-album B-sides that the Doors released during their career. The other two are "(You Need Meat) Don't Go No Further" and "Tree Trunk".[citation needed]
