Deep Purple, Knocking at Your Back Door.

Truth is the first song I've ever listened of Deep Purple was this. In the video version, so outdated then like it is now, but in the Mad Max tradition, I found a band that crafted a perfect song. Crazy lyrics, great grove and a song that goes like a roller coaster; from low action to full throttle, going up and down and always so alive.

The host of the TV show where I watched the video back in 1984 said that it was a reunion and that the band was classic. I didn't knew that (I was only 12!) but I enjoyed so much the music that joining some money from my allowance I bought the tape. Not all the songs were of my liking but I listened and relistened the tape until I knew it by heart. Then my friend Peig lent me Made in Japan and I instantly became a Deep Purple fan. Smoke on the Water, of course was some song, but this Knocking at Your Back Door is still my DP favourite. 


Deep Purple - Knocking At Your Back Door


Sweet Lucy was a dancer

When Lucy met the rocket

She made electric shadows

Oh it's not the kill

Sweet Nancy was so fancy

And none of us could reach that high

So we put her on the hit list

The point of no return

Now how you know the score

It's the thrill of the chase

And now you're learning

The members that she toyed with

No it's knocking at your door

And now she eases gently

I had to touch and please her

Because she was a samurai

It's knocking at the door

She never knew the reason why

Knocking at your door

With that smile on my face

Oh it's not the kill

It's the thrill of the chase



What's knockin' at your back door

The point of no return





With that smile on her face

And now you know the score

From her Austin to her Bentley



And now you're learning

It's not against the law

And one of us could reach that high

Of a common cunning linguist

Had to be the aristocracy

She came on like a teaser

You know it's no good running

Knockin' at your back door

Beyond our fingertips

But none of us would chance her



Oh oh, it's not the kill

Feel it coming

It's the thrill of the chase

Because she was a samurai

Suddenly she feels so young

You know it's no good running

I can't deny it

You know it's no good running

I can't deny it

With that smile on her face



The lock was in my pocket

Sweet Lucy was a dancer

What's knockin' at your back door

I can't deny it

A master of many tongues

No it's not against the law

Enjoy a little paradise

Feel it coming



She made electric shadows

Feel it coming

But none of us would chance her



To get into her pantry

At city club were something in diplomacy





Beyond our fingertips

It's knocking at the door
