People are Strange
by Kevin Dellinger

A very original song called, "People are Strange" was written in 1967 by Robert Krieger and Jim Morrison. The song was written due to the depression of Jim Morrison at that time. Laurel Canyon was the influence to the song.

After its release by "the Doors", it soon became a hit. The original song is 2:12 in length. It represents isolation. The song is heartfelt from depression of feeling alienated and cast out of society. 

There have been many covers done by different bands since 1987. Now, "People are Strange" is back. Independent recording artist, Kevin Dellinger has released a new licensed cover of this song. The official single release was August 29th 2018. It is available at Spotify, Apple Music, Google Play, Deezer and Tidal.

Kevin Dellinger has been an independent artist since 1990. His genres are electronic and alternative in nature. His inspirations came from progressive rock bands such as Pink Floyd, R.E.M., U2, Depeche Mode, New Order and the Cure. Kevin Dellinger also listened to the Doors throughout childhood in the 1980s.

Recently, Kevin decided to do a cover song of "People are Strange." The voice is almost similar to Jim Morrison. Kevin was always told his voice was similar over the years. Also soon to be released will be "Light My Fire" by Kevin Dellinger. Be on the lookout for more licensed cover songs by Kevin Dellinger in the near future of 2018.
