Classic Rock Addiction!!!

The song that really made Deep Purple famous is not my favorite song, and it doesn't even make it into my top list of songs for the group.  Of course that is Smoke on the Water.

The songs that got me addicted to DP would be STRANGE KIND OF WOMAN, CHILD IN TIME, BLACK KNIGHT, KNOCKIN AT YOUR BACKDOOR, HUSH, DEMON'S EYE, HIGHWAY STAR, BURN, and, SPEED KING.  Of course I love other DP songs but those 9 are always at the top of the list for me.

Ian Gillian's voice is ORGASMIC!!! His voice is one that had me at the first note, and has had me feeling the naughtiness of rock n roll since childhood.  His voice has such a dynamic range that I can only find two others to compare it to and that would have to be David Bowie, or Robert Plant.

Blackmore guiatr riffs pure electric and drive harder than any muscle car on a Saturday night...In songs like SPEED KING, or HIGHWAY STAR his guitar riffs feel as though they are literally ripping the air apart around you and releasing some sort of energy.  These songs are deadly to drive to as they make you want to go as fast has his riffs and Paice's drums will take you.........

DP's music just makes me feel alive, energetic and well just something I cannot describe!!!

Nothing beats those guitar riffs!

smoke on the water for me

Think you're either talking about 'Lazy', 'Space Trucking' or 'Perfect Strangers'....

They're a lively bunch and never play the same thing twice....such 'of the moment' performances.....

You've hit on some truely great songs....each one a cracker!!!

have no mind left, but love music<br />
<br />
spent many an hour wandering off into the tunes Of Deep Purple.<br />
<br />
driving me nuts, but one song in particular was my fav.<br />
<br />
had an incredible organ lead in. <br />
<br />
any ideas?<br />
<br />
one day I'll have to go and investigate

It is a rare thing that a band can take me to another place with their music but Deep Purple is one of those special rarities....Who needs to meditate for hours or days like a guru...just throw on a CD of a band like this and you can find yourself transcending the day.

Sweet child in time you'll see the line The line that's drawn between the good and the bad<br />
See the blind man shooting at the world<br />
Bullets flying taking toll<br />
If you've been bad, Lord I bet you have<br />
And you've not been hit by flying lead<br />
You'd better close your eyes and bow your head<br />
And wait for the ricochet<br />
<br />
I agree with you, tryind to find the word to describe it.<br />
Religious?<br />
<br />
wh en this somg comes on I go quiet and listen with every figre of my being, then I discover I'm moving.<br />

thumbs down for smoke on the water
