Queen for a Day

Album: Ghost of a Rose (2003)
  • songfacts ®
  • This song from the 2003 Ghost Of A Rose album is in two parts; the second part which runs to 1 minute 36 seconds is an instrumental by Ritchie Blackmore; the first part runs to 3 minutes 5 seconds, and as usual has words by Candice and music by Ritchie.

    When she waxed lyrical here, Candice Night may have wished she was queen for a day, but she was already living the dream. Five years later, she and Ritchie married, then she presented him with first a daughter and then a son, by which time they had established a new genre of music, augmented her husband's fame, and established her own. Add to that living in a castle, to become queen for a mere day sounds a distinct disappointment. The song was actually written in a castle, Schloss Rabenstein. >>
