Song of the day: Deep Purple- Child In Time

deep-purple-child-in-time

This song by Deep Purple is a long one: more than 10 minutes! The music of the song was based on the song Bombay Calling by the band It’s a Beautiful Day, which was fresh. Jon Lord played this music on a keyboard, and Ian Gillian liked it. With a few changes, it would fit the lyrics he thought of at that moment. The theme would be the Cold War and so the protest song against the Vietnam War was ready. It’s one of their biggest hits. Enjoy
