Only in Norway
Has anyone heard of Jim Morrison? :D
Clever intentions with this sentence.
Gårdsplassfuglene synger også.
Well I didn't know the doors, but the sentence felt so weird I had to look it up...
Is that what the sentence means? I thought creaky doors or something
The literal meaning is " The doors sing", however this is an example of personification. So it means the doors are noisy.
I thought the sentence was referring to the rock band "The Doors." Wouldn't personification in this case be more recognisable to a Norwegian speaker if the sentence were something like, "Dørene er musikalsk?"
Personally, I prefer The Real Group from Sweden.
Perhaps should be The Doors...
People are strange, when youre a stranger
Faces look ugly, when you're alone
Dørene trenger olje
Dørene trenger øl!
I'd say they've had enough.
I think the people've had enough øl.
Were they high?
More than likely
No, they're strange.
People are strange when you're a stranger...
Rytter på stormen
Oh, one of the Doors' songs! Nice!
Hør hvordan dørene synger her: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4naoVjdFxCA
Break on through to the other side, yeah.
I had to read these comments to have an idea about the possible meaning of this sentence. Not sure about it, yet.
If its referring to the band, shouldnt their name be "the Doors" in norsk and english?
To be referring to the band, both words would need to be capitalised (ie. The Doors)
Only one of the Doors sang, really. Ei av dørene synger?
Èn if you want to accentuate that only one door is singing. En if you don't.

Meanwhile in Norway~
Is this the same as "the doors creak"?
I'd say it's a more expressive way of saying they are making a noise (for whatever reason), as you may find in creative writing.
When I saw this I thought of Alice in Wonderland. Then I thought of a haunted hotel door.
I do remember "The Doors" from years ago when they sang "Riders in the Storm."
Show me the way to the next whiskey baaar...
Oh don't ask why
Folk er merkeligt når du er en fremmed. Ansikter ser stygge ut når du er alene
What a stupid phrase
Except when you think of the group, The Doors. They sang good songs about 30 years or more ago.
