“Tell All the People” was the third single off The Doors’ 1969 album The Soft Parade. It is also known by “Follow Me Down” because of the use of the phrase in the song. It was released as an A-side that same year, with “Easy Ride” as its B-side, reaching #57 in the US charts. “Tell All the People” was written by guitarist Robby Krieger, and it was famously because of this song, that songwriting credits on the “Soft Parade” album were given to individual band members, instead of being shared by all of the band, as was the case with all of their other studio efforts. Lead singer Jim Morrison didn’t want anyone to think that he had written the lyrics to “Tell All the People”, as the lyrics admonishes the listeners to “get your guns”. Read on...
