Saxon - "Speed King" (Deep Purple cover)

Good Golly said little Miss Molly
When she was rocking in the house of blue light
Tutti Frutti was oh so rooty
When she was rocking to the east and west

Lucille was oh so real
When she didn't do her daddy's will
Come on baby drive me crazy do it do it

I'm a speed king
You got to hear me sing
I'm a speed king
See me fly

Saturday night and I just got paid
Going to fool about isn't going to save
Some people going to rock some people gonna roll
Going to have a party to save my soul

Hard headed woman and a soft hearted man
They been causing trouble since it all began
Take a little rice take a little beans
Going to rock and roll down to New Orleans

I'm a speed king
You got to hear me sing
I'm a speed king
See me fly

Good Golly said little Miss Molly
When she was rocking in the house of blue light
Tutti Frutti was oh so rooty
When she was rocking to the east and west

Hard headed woman and a soft hearted man
They been causing trouble since it all began
Take a little rice take a little beans
Going to rock and roll down to New Orleans

I'm a speed king
You got to hear me sing
I'm a speed king
See me fly


Το τραγούδι "Speed King" ήταν ουσιαστικά αυτό που σύστησε τον Ian Gillan στο κοινό των Deep Purple ως το εναρκτήριο κομμάτι του δίσκου "In Rock" (παρθενικού album του Ian με τους Purple). Κυκλοφόρησε τον Ιούνιο του 1970. Οι στίχοι του "Speed King" αποτίουν φόρο τιμής σε rock n roll τραγούδια της δεκαετίας του πενήντα.

Για παράδειγμα στην πρώτη στροφή του κομματιού αναφέρονται μέρη από το "Good Golly, Miss Molly", το "Tutti Frutti" και το "Lucille" και στην δεύτερη βρίσκονται μέρη του "Rip it Up" (όλα του Little Richard), του "Hard Headed Woman" (Elvis Presley) και του "Some People" (Chuck Berry).

Οι Βρετανοί metallers θα κυκλοφορήσουν δίσκο με διασκευές σε τραγούδια που τους ενέπνευσαν και τους επηρέασαν (υπό τον τίτλο "Inspirations") στα μέσα Μαρτίου και η προσέγγισή τους στον ύμνο των Deep Purple είναι μεταξύ αυτών...

Δελτίο τύπου: «Legendary British Heavy Metal heroes Saxon loudly continue unveiling their Inspirations covers project with second single ‘Speed King’, Deep Purple’s classic tune from their 1970 album Deep Purple In Rock.

“𝐖𝐢𝐭𝐡𝐨𝐮𝐭 '𝐒𝐩𝐞𝐞𝐝 𝐊𝐢𝐧𝐠' 𝐭𝐡𝐞𝐫𝐞 𝐰𝐨𝐮𝐥𝐝 𝐛𝐞 𝐧𝐨 '𝐌𝐨𝐭𝐨𝐫𝐜𝐲𝐜𝐥𝐞 𝐌𝐚𝐧'” said Biff Byford when explaining the importance of the song on Saxon’s early career ascendance. "𝐈 𝐥𝐨𝐯𝐞 𝐭𝐡𝐞 𝐚𝐭𝐭𝐢𝐭𝐮𝐝𝐞, 𝐞𝐧𝐞𝐫𝐠𝐲 𝐚𝐧𝐝 𝐝𝐫𝐢𝐯𝐢𝐧𝐠 𝐬𝐩𝐞𝐞𝐝 𝐨𝐟 𝐭𝐡𝐢𝐬 𝐬𝐨𝐧𝐠, 𝐧𝐨𝐭 𝐭𝐨 𝐦𝐞𝐧𝐭𝐢𝐨𝐧 𝐭𝐡𝐨𝐬𝐞 𝐬𝐜𝐫𝐞𝐚𝐦𝐢𝐧𝐠 𝐯𝐨𝐜𝐚𝐥𝐬! 𝐈'𝐝 𝐧𝐞𝐯𝐞𝐫 𝐬𝐮𝐧𝐠 𝐢𝐭 𝐛𝐞𝐟𝐨𝐫𝐞, 𝐚𝐧𝐝 𝐈 𝐡𝐚𝐝 𝐠𝐫𝐞𝐚𝐭 𝐟𝐮𝐧 𝐰𝐢𝐭𝐡 𝐢𝐭!”

‘Speed King’ is part of Saxon’s forthcoming 11-track Inspirations album, where in 2020 the band took residence at Brockfield Hall in York, UK, to record cover versions of various songs which deeply influenced the band, engaging in a proper old-school live and recording process which was a hallmark of many old-school rock ‘n’ roll records.

British Heavy Metal legends Saxon will deliver a full-roar-fun-down set of covers with their latest album Inspirations, which drops a brand new 11 track release featuring some of the superb classic rock songs that influenced Biff Byford & the band. Saxon’s Inspirations is available on Vinyl, CD, digital formats and limited edition D2C products.»
