I used to listen to the song “Green Door” as a young kiddo. I always liked it and knew most of the words by heart, but it painted a mystery of “The Green Door”. A google search turned up that it is still pretty much a mysterious color for a door.

“(The) Green Door” is a 1956 popular song with music composed by Bob Davie and lyrics written by Marvin Moore. The lyrics describe the allure of a mysterious private club with a green door, behind which “a happy crowd” play piano, smoke and “laugh a lot”, and inside which the singer is not allowed. At the time the song was popular, many believed it was inspired by a green-doored restaurant and bar called “The Shack”, but according to longtime Columbia resident Frederick Allen, the name came from a brothel in town during the 1930s nicknamed “The Green Door.”

The song’s title inspired the title of a short story that was made into a pornographic film, Behind the Green Door.

Behind the Green Door (1940)[5] is a Penny Parker mystery novel by Mildred Wirt Benson. In the novel, the secret door hides some illegal activity at a ski-resort hotel; no music or vice is involved in this book aimed at adolescent girls.

It is also the name of a letter written by David Berg, the former leader of the cult once called the Children of God and later renamed “The Family”-—he used it as a term for molesting little children.

Within the American intelligence community, “green door” is a slang verb, meaning to restrict an individual’s or organization’s access to information and/or locations. “We green doored them” or “The situation has been highlighted by the ‘Green Door’ compartmentation and exclusion”.

The Green Door is a San Francisco Medical Marijuana Dispensary.
