Maybe Next Time

Songfacts®:

  • Written by lead guitarist Ritchie Blackmore and keyboard player Don Airey, this guitar instrumental runs to 3 minutes 23 seconds and was released as the B-side of the Russ Ballard penned "I Surrender."
  • The song is also known as "Vielleicht Das Nächste Mal" which is rendered by FreeTranslation.com as "Perhaps The Nächste Time" which gives the correct English to German translation as "Vielleicht Nächste Zeit". This came about because of Blackmore's fascination with all things German; his first two marriages were to German women; both ended in divorce, and his command of the language does not appear to have been anymore successful! >>
