The green door

First was a sexual fantasy written by the GI's during the Korea war, before getting an underground circulation amongst the beatnicks. It turned to a song sung by Jim Lowe, which was number 1 during 3 weeks in 1956. The X movie was shot in 1972 by the Mitchell brothers, in their San Francisco O'Farrel theatre, with the 20 years old Marylin "ivory snow" Chambers.

I would love to do a cover version of this song (thanks to the Cramps and sorry for my french accent). There is always something happening behind the green door...There are many doors, houses, windows, in my songs. But it will be the first time that the door is coloured. In fact, the green door is pink; but a pink door which is green is more mysterious.
