deep purple

Smoke On The Water veniva incisa dai Deep Purple nell’album Machine Head del 1972. La canzone è immediatamente riconoscibile dall’inconfondibile riff di chitarra, suonato da Ritchie Blackmore con una Gibson ES-335 (l’unica canzone di Machine Head in cui non usa una Fender Stratocaster).
Il testo si riferisce al viaggio del gruppo a Montreux, Svizzera, per registrare un album nel 1971 all’edificio del Casino: la sera prima di entrare in studio, durante un concerto di Frank Zappa e i Mothers Of Inventions, qualcuno dette fuoco all’edificio con un lanciafiamme. La “water” a cui fa riferimento il titolo sono le acque del lago di Ginevra, sul quale si riflettevano le fiamme.
Smoke On The Water è stata classificata dodicesima nella lista delle più grandi tracce di chitarra.

Smoke On The Water Testo Lyrics

We all came out to Montreux
On the Lake Geneva shoreline
To make records with a mobile
We didn't have much time
Frank Zappa and the Mothers
Were at the best place around
But some stupid with a flare gun
Burned the place to the ground
Smoke on the water, a fire in the sky, smoke on the water

They burned down the gamblin' house,
It died with an awful sound
and Funky Claude was running in and out
Pulling kids out the ground
When it all was over
We had to find another place
But Swiss time was running out
It seemed that we would lose the race
Smoke on the water, a fire in the sky, smoke on the water

We ended up at the Grand Hotel
It was empty cold and bare
But with the Rolling truck Stones thing just outside
Making our music there
With a few red lights and a few old beds
We make a place to sweat
No matter what we get out of this
I know, I know we'll never forget
Smoke on the water, a fire in the sky ,smoke on the water
