I have just heard a song on the radio that I have never heard before and I knew immediately that I had to write a blog post about it. The song is called "Green Door" and was released by Shakin' Stevens in 1981.
Green Door is a cover of a 1956 hit by Jim Lowe who released it in the United States. Green Door reached number one for Shakin' Stevens where it stayed for four weeks and it was included on the "Shaky" album. A popular cover song, it was also released by Frankie Vaughan reaching number two in the charts and by Glen Mason achieving number 24.
In the song, Shakin' Stevens asks "Green door, what's that secret you're keeping?" There is lots of music and laughter behind the closed door and the singer is not allowed to enter.
There are a couple of theories about the origins and inspiration for this song, but there was a club in West London called The Gateways that featured a green door. This was the first lesbian bar in London so it would be difficult for a man to gain entry and find out what went on behind the door.
If you are looking for a green door to grace the entrance of your home then please take a look at the Doorsan website. We have a wide selection of hardwood external doors and you can purchase specialist paint in the colour of your choice.

There are various shades of green offering you a number of style options. For example you might like an emerald shade for a rustic country look for your door or a contemporary olive shade which appears to be on trend for 2015.
