The title track of Opeth's sixth studio album, this song, along with several other of the tunes were inspired by a traumatic event that happened to the girlfriend of guitarist Peter Lindgren. Vocalist Mikael Åkerfeldt recalled to Billboard magazine: "She and a couple of her friends were kind of held hostage by some crazy guy. He locked them inside his apartment, they were partying or whatever, and he started cutting himself and telling them that he's going to kill them and stuff like that. It didn't end badly -- they got out of there -- but the guy was obviously some type of lunatic, so that inspired that lyric [for] 'Deliverance.'"
"Pretty In Pink" by Psychedelic Furs was released in 1981. Five years later, it inspired a movie of the same name starring Molly Ringwald, Andrew McCarthy and Jon Cryer. The song was remixed for the re-release to have more Pop appeal.
His keyboard work helped define the Muscle Shoals sound and make him an integral part of many Neil Young recordings. Spooner is also an accomplished songwriter, whose hits include "I'm Your Puppet" and "Cry Like A Baby."
