Especially the chorus and the acoustic guitar riff and the backing vocals - zxm

While smoke on the water,child in time,soldiers of fortune,highway star is remembered but this song is one of the most underrated songs of them,this is a great song with mixture of classical elements and the vocals and keyboards riff(or whatever it calls) sounds very nice and beautiful - zxm
