Album: Fires At Midnight (2001)

  • Lyrics
  • If this original composition has an Oriental feel to it, that is because Benzai-Ten (or Benzaiten) is a Japanese Buddhist goddess. As usual, the song has music by Ritchie and lyrics by Candice, so this is her personal interpretation. Running to 2 minutes 49 seconds, "Benzai-Ten" is the fourteenth track on the 2001 Fires At Midnight album.
  • Blackmore's Night played their first ever concert in Japan four years earlier, the Nakano Sunplaza Hall, on November 2, 1997, which was unquestionably the inspiration for the song. Ritchie Blackmore first visited Japan in 1972, about the time his future wife was first learning to walk unaided! >>
