Touch Me, by The Doors, backed up by the Nelson Riddle Orchestra

Jim Morrison sings Touch Me

December 6, 1968


From http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Touch_Me_(The_Doors_song)

One of the group’s most famous television appearances is their performance of “Touch Me” on the Smothers Brothers Comedy Hour along with the single’s B-side, “Wild Child.” The taping date was December 6, 1968 with air date of December 15th. During the performance, Jim Morrison missed his cue for the lines “C’mon, c’mon” and Robby Krieger could be seen with a black eye. Krieger stated in several interviews given after Morrison’s death that Morrison had given him the black eye during a confrontation; ironically, Krieger’s original title for the song was “Hit Me.” The group is backed by the Nelson Riddle Orchestra, plus Curtis Amy duplicating the saxophone solo he also performed on the studio version.

Where Morrison “missed his cue” is at 1:09. There’s a full second pause in the music. ~Editor
