Ian Gillan - "Knockin' At Your Back Door" (live)

Sweet Lucy was a dancer
But none of us would chance her
Because she was a Samurai
She made electric shadows
Beyond our fingertips
And none of us could reach that high
She came on like a teaser
I had to touch and please her
Enjoy a little paradise
The log was in my pocket
When Lucy met the Rocket
And she never knew the reason why

I can't deny it
With that smile on her face
It's not the kill
It's the thrill of the chase

Feel it coming
It's knocking at the door
You know it's no good running
It's not against the law
The point of no return
And now you know the score
And now you're learning
What's knockin' at your back door

Sweet Nancy was so fancy
To get into her pants we
Had to be the aristocracy
The members that she toyed with
At her city club
Were something in diplomacy
So we put her on the hit list
Of a common cunning linguist
A master of many tongues
And now she eases gently
From her Austin to her Bentley
Suddenly she feels so young

I can't deny it
With that smile on her face
Oh, it's not the kill
It's the thrill of the chase

Feel it coming
It's knocking at the door
You know it's no good running
It's not against the law
The point of no return
And now you know the score
And now you're learning
What's knockin' at your back door

Sweet Lucy was a dancer
But none of us would chance her
Because she was a Samurai
She made electric shadows
Beyond our fingertips
And one of us could reach that high

I can't deny it
With that smile on my face, oh
It's not the kill
It's the thrill of the chase

Feel it coming
It's knocking at the door
You know it's no good running
It's not against the law
The point of no return
And now you know the score
And now you're learning
What's knockin' at your back door

What's knockin' at your back door


Ο τραγουδιστής Ian Gillan
Την άνοιξη του 2006 κυκλοφορούσε ο δίσκος του Ian Gillan, "Gillan's Inn", με τον οποίο γιόρταζε σαράντα χρόνια μουσικής καριέρας. Το album περιλάμβανε παλαιότερα τραγούδια με τον Gillan στα φωνητικά, επανεκτελεσμένα, απ' όλο το φάσμα της καριέρας του. Η φωνή των Deep Purple πραγματοποίησε Αμερικάνικη περιοδεία σε club για την προώθηση του δίσκου.

Σε κάποια από εκείνες τις συναυλίες φιλμογραφήθηκε η "ζωντανή" απόδοση του κλασικού τραγουδιού "Knockin' At Your Back Door", το οποίο πρωτακούσαμε στον "μυθικό" δίσκο των Purple "Perfect Strangers" που σηματοδότησε την μεγάλη επιστροφή τους μετά από εννέα χρόνια. Για το (σεξουαλικό) στιχουργικό περιεχόμενο του τραγουδιού ο Ian Gillan είχε πει:

«There's this guy named Redbeard, from a radio station down in Texas. He phoned me up after it had been played on every radio station in America and said, "Is this what I think it's about?" And I said, "Yeah." And he said, "It's amazing, every radio station in America is playing a song written about anal sex and they don't even realize what's going on."

And I was like, well it's not in-your-face anal sex, it's just a joke. It just came about with the lyrics. It's no big deal. But it's a humorous thing and not meant to be offensive. And I think it was just an afterthought. It certainly wasn't what inspired the song.»

Δελτίο τύπου: «Check out this brilliant rendition by Ian Gillan performing Deep Purple's Knockin' At Your Back Door recorded live in 2006. On the back of Ian's celebration album "Gillan's Inn" put together with Michael Lee Jackson, Ian hit the road in the USA for a club tour.»
