Song of the Day – “Pictures of Home” – Deep Purple
June 9, 2016 Leave a comment
It would have been a milestone birthday for keyboardist Jon Lord of Deep Purple – number 75 – had he not passed away in 2012 from a pulmonary embolism on top of pancreatic cancer. Lord was a founding member and a lifelong contributor to Deep Purple.
This song is from Machine Head, which also contained the classic “Smoke on the Water”.
I’m alone here
With emptiness eagles and snow
Unfriendliness chilling my body
And whispering pictures of home
Quintessential heavy metal lyrics.
