Top Ten Deep Purple Songs
The Contenders: Page 2
One of the first examples of speed metal in my opinion
0%? You're kidding! When the band reformed in '84 each member picked their favourite DP song for a Radio One special and this was Jon's choice - and he knew a thing or two about music! Perhaps it takes more time to appreciate than some songs but it's worth the effort. It's certainly risen in my top ten over the last forty odd years, maybe because it sounded a tad messy on the lo-fi mono record player we had back then. Surely the band's most breath-taking, exciting and simply OTT studio recording. Epic indeed.
Agree - pure speed metal, and epic! All those gallops in current metal came from DP's speed metal. - Metal_TreasureV 1 Comment
47 songs and not a single entry for "Blind. " A pretty damn good song from one of their most underrated albums. Come on, peeps!
One of the most awesome hidden tracks in history. I've heard this song back when I was a little child, early steps into music. Blew my mind. 10 minutes of total epic music travel through space with a smile on your face.
Awesome instrumental. Ritchie Blackmore did great in this song. - zxm
I remember this song was newly added. And it came on 22. - zxm
Such a beautiful, masterful song, like the previous commenter said, 10 minutes of a awesomness.V 1 Comment
Deep Purple are again one step ahead - besides its awesome melody and riff, this song has some elements of symphonic (power) metal. Go beat Ritchie Blackmore when speaking of metal invention, and respectively - metal subgenres.
And Gillan even growls towards the end - it's so metal. - Metal_Treasure
From The Made in Europe album, another one of Ritchie's great solos, that he plays with feeling and passion. Probably his best but then the song kinda tanks with the beginning of the drum solo.
It amazes me that this was not even on the list. Best song on their first album alongside hush. The 7 min version is the best cover (acc. to me), the starting is just majestic and Rod Evans as always kicks ass. Come on this should be at least in top 20.
Leaves did it first; Hendrix did it best
Used to play this on guitar all the time, quite tricky to master too. Heavy and funky in that unique purple way. Gillian is unbelievable.
I have somehow never heard this song until recently. Now I cannot get it out of my head.
Amazing and such a powerful song it was made in the eighties so that probably why it's not seen as a real classic but I rate it at least deserves a listen
Should be higher placed! A great tune with great vocals and guitar work.
The besy guitar solo I have ever listened.. You can feel all the emotion..
