Top 10 Deep Purple Songs With the Best Solos


The Top Ten

1 Highway Star

Awesome solo to a precious song for every metalhead, especially those who love speed metal, and every more or less fast metal subgenre. - Metal_Treasure

2 Child In Time

This is perhaps the most under appreciated and unrecognized guitar solos in rock. Magnificent!

A very intense and legendary solo. I like better the live version from Made In Japan. - Metal_Treasure

3 Hard Lovin' Man

2 solos - I like more the first solo but the 2nd, outro solo, is one of the longest, craziest and heaviest Blackmore solos. To the best of my knowledge, this song was the first speed metal song ever (1970, while Highway Star came out in 1972).
1) 3:40-4:45
2) 5:40-7:10 - Metal_Treasure

4 Pictures of Home

This song is so special and awesome. It actually has 2 guitar solos (plus 1 bass solo, and 1 keyboards solo). - Metal_Treasure

5 Smoke On the Water
6 Burn

A very underrated early metal song. - Metal_Treasure

7 Stormbringer
8 Mistreated

The live version from California 1974 is also cool. - Metal_Treasure

9 Hungry Daze

Again, 2 solos - I was surprised how many Deep Purple songs have 2 and more solos. - Metal_Treasure

10 The Gypsy

Not fast, heavy or technical solo but it's very beautiful and sounds like the perfect solo for this song. - Metal_Treasure

The Contenders

11 Son of Alerik

It was mostly based on solo/solos. - zxm

12 The Cut Runs Deep
13 Knocking at Your Back Door

Ritchie Blackmore did it again - 2 solos! - Metal_Treasure

14 Sometimes I Feel Like Screaming

This solo was a very good solo. - zxm

15 Soldier of Fortune
16 Lazy

Not including this is criminal
