This Saturday marks 50 years since The Doors' debut single Light My Fire, a song that hit No 1 in the US and went on to soundtrack the Summer of Love - and now fans worldwide are aiming to create a global jukebox to mark the anniversary.

A marketing campaign, entitled "Play Light My Fire At 7:29 On 7/29", is asking fans of the band to ask radio stations to play the iconic song so it can be heard in unison worldwide. 

Rhino records have also commemorated the 50th anniversary with two new releases - a limited edition reproduction of the original 7" single that was released in Japan in 1967 and a new digital and streaming maxi-single with three different versions of Light My Fire.

Doors guitarist Robby Krieger wrote most of Light My Fire. It was the first song he ever wrote and - along with the Doors’ first single Break On Through (To The Other Side) - the track helped fuel the band’s early success and made stars of Jim Morrison, Ray Manzarek, John Densmore, and Krieger.
