Jimmy Somerville (born 22 June 1961) is a Scottish pop singer, born and raised in Glasgow. He had considerable success in the 1980s with the pop groups Bronski Beat and The Communards, and has also had a successful solo career.

"People Are Strange" is a single released by The Doors in September 1967. According to its Allmusic review, the song "reflects the group's fascination with the theatrical music of European cabaret." The song is about alienation and being an outsider, and, as the aforementioned review also notices, Jim Morrison may have addressed the song both to the hippie culture, to outsiders in general, and/or to users of drugs such as LSD. The song was written by guitarist Robby Krieger after he and a depressed Morrison had walked to the top of Laurel Canyon. Drummer John Densmore believes that the song was the manifestation of Morrison's "vulnerability".
