Lazy diamond studded flunkies

"Love Street" is a 1968 song by The Doors which appears on their album Waiting For The Sun.

The song is about the street in Laurel Canyon where Jim Morrison lived with his girlfriend Pamela Courson. Their house was on Rothdell Trail. Morrison and Courson referred to Rothdell Trail as "Love Street" because they would sit on the balcony and watch countless hippies walk by.

Love Street is also the song Anne used to play on her answer machine when she lived in San Francisco. As a young man I would save up all my money to call Transatlantic, and then waste $2 waiting for the message part of the machine to begin.

In the words of Simon Bates "It's an Our Tune".
