Kurt Weill, a German-Jewish composer featured “Alabama Song”, wrote the German opera song “Alabama song (Whiskey Bar)”  written in 1929 by Kurt Weill and Burtolt Brecht. As Jim Morrison was a known poet and theatre/film major at UCLA, The Doors transformed this unknown gem into a rock and roll favorite for many. The Doors featured this song on their self-titled album The Doors January 4th, 1967
