April

Deep Purple



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

This song is about the month of April. A Ritchie Blackmore/Jon Lord composition, the first section is played solely by Lord and Blackmore; Lord plays piano and organ; Blackmore plays electric and acoustic guitars. The second section, orchestrated by Lord, uses flutes, clarinets, a string section and other instruments; the third section adds vocals. As the band wrote in the liner notes, "As a whole we hope April hangs together as a personal evocation of a beautiful, but sad (to us) month." (thanks, Alexander - London, England)

Travis talks Rock Band, their Amory Wars storyline, and the CC song that some fair-weather fans show up for.

Who writes a song about a name they found in a phone book? That's just one of the everyday things these guys find to sing about. Anything in their field of vision or general scope of knowledge is fair game. If you cross paths with them, so are you.

The 2011 Artist of the Year at the Dove Awards isn't your typical gospel diva, and she thinks that's a good thing.

He wrote "She Blinded Me With Science" so he could direct a video about a home for deranged scientists.
