Day 78: “Burn” – Deep Purple

!!!ITALIANO!!!

1974: Burn comes out, it is Deep Purple‘s 8th studio album.Today’s song, with the same title, is contained in that record. A legendary track, where Ritchie Blackmore‘s fast riff  and David Coverdale‘s screams are surrounded by some hard rock with very high quality classical recalls, also because of  Jon Lord‘s fantastic ideas.

This version is from Live in Paris, 7th april 1975. The next day Blackomre leaves the band and forms Rainbow.

Nowadays, Deep Purple are the4 following: Ian Gillan (vocals), Ian Paice (drums), Steve Morse (guitar), Don Airey (keyboards), Roger Glover (bass).

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!”
