スモーク・オン・ザ・ウォーター/Smoke On The Water(ディープ・パープル/Deep Purple)1972年

昭和・70年代洋楽・ディープパープル・Smoke On The Water

19553

ディープ・パープルの『Smoke On The Water』、日本でも大ヒットでした!40数年ぶりに体感しました。今聞くとめっちゃシンプルで、とっても新鮮!まああの当時、バンドやるときの登竜門的にこの曲コピーしたバンドは数知れず、アマチュアバンドのコンサートでは必ずといっていいほど演奏されてたなあ!

We all came out to Montreux,
On the Lake Geneva shoreline.
To make records with a mobile,
We didn’t have much time.
But 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 and fire in the sky.
Smoke on the water…

They burned down the gambling house,
It died with an awful sound.
(Uh) Funky Claude was running in and out,
Pulling kids down to 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 and 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, a few old beds,
We made a place to sweat.
No matter what we get out of this,
I know I know we’ll never forget.
Smoke on the water and fire in the sky.
Smoke on the water…
