People Are Strange è un brano di Strange Days, album del 1967 dei Doors: sebbene creditato a tutto il gruppo, gli autori sono Jim Morrison ed il chitarrista Robby Krieger, e fu ispirata da una passeggiata che i due condussero in solitudine in vetta al Laurel Canyon.
Il testo è un’analisi dell’alienazione della gente, di come ci si sente quando gli altri ci vedono estranei, con riferimenti in particolare alla cultura hippie (gli “strani” del tempo) e a tutti coloro che facevano uso di droghe pesanti.
Il batterista Densmore ha dichiarato che questa canzone riflette tutta la vulnerabilità di Jim Morrison.
