!!!ENGLISH!!!

1974: esce Burn, l’ottavo album dei Deep Purple, da cui è tratta la canzone di oggi, che ha lo stesso titolo. Un pezzo storico, in cui il riff frenetico di Ritchie Blackmore e gli urli di David Coverdale  sono incorniciati in un hard rock con dei richiami classicheggianti di ottima fattura, grazie anche alle solite intuizioni geniali del tastierista Jon Lord.

Questa versione è tratta dal live a Parigi del 7 aprile 1975. Il giorno dopo Blackmore lascerà la band per formare i Rainbow.

I Deep Purple sono oggi attivi con la line-up: Ian Gillan (voce), Ian Paice (batteria), Steve Morse (chitarra), Don Airey (tastiere), Roger Glover (basso).

Lyrics

The sky is red, i don’t understand,
Past midnight i still see the land.
People are sayin’ the woman is damned,
She makes you burn with a wave of her hand.
The city’s a blaze, the town’s on fire.
The woman’s flames are reaching higher.
We were fools, we called her liar.
All i hear is “burn!”
I didn’t believe she was devil’s sperm.
She said, “curse you all, you’ll never learn!
When i leave there’s no return.”
The people laughed till she said, “burn!”
Warning came, no one cared.
Earth was shakin’, we stood and stared.
When it came no one was spared.
Still i hear “burn!”
You know we had no time,
We could not even try.
You know we had no time.
You know we had no time,
We could not even try.
You know we had no time.

The sky is red, i don’t understand,
Past midnight i still see the land.
People are sayin’ the woman is damned,
She makes you burn with a wave of her hand.
Warning came, no one cared.
Earth was shakin, we stood and stared.
When it came no one was spared.
Still i hear “burn!”
