“The Crystal Ship” is a song by The Doors from their 1967 debut album The Doors. It was also the B-Side of the number-one hit single, “Light My Fire.“ It is regarded as a love song to Jim Morrison’s first love, Mary Werbelow. It has been suggested that the inspiration for the “crystal ship” image is an obscure Celtic legend from “The Book of the Dun Cow” in which the hero Connla is wooed by a fairy princess who carries him away to the land of the fairies in a crystal boat. It has also been speculated that the image may refer to Platform Holly, an oil rig off the coast of Santa Barbara, California, which glitters like a crystal ship when lit up at night. Read on...
