Knocking At Your Back Door

by

Deep Purple



Songfacts®:  You can leave comments about the song at the bottom of the page.

This song takes place in a strip club, and is about anal sex, hence "Back Door." Like "Pictures Of Lily," it was an effort to push the limits of what could be inserted lyrically in a song that receives airplay. It did surprisingly well, charting at #61 in the US and getting substantial airplay on Rock radio.
Perfect Strangers featured the Mark II lineup of Ian Gillan, Ritchie Blackmore, Roger Glover, Ian Paice and Jon Lord. It was the first Deep Purple album with this lineup since their 1973 effort Who Do You Think We Are. (thanks, Mark - Londonderry, NH, for above 2)

I heard this song was about convincing a woman to have anal sex.

It wasn't her biggest hit as a songwriter (that would be "Bette Davis Eyes"), but "Put a Little Love in Your Heart" had a family connection for Jackie.
Peter LordPeter Lord
You may not recognize his name, but you will certainly recognize Peter Lord's songs. He wrote the bevy of hits from Paula Abdul's second album, Spellbound, plus a collection of other classics for the likes of Aftershock, Ali and Goodfellaz.

Back with Korn, Brian talks guitar pedals and Bungle chords as he takes us through the genesis of their sound and the stories behind the songs.
