Strange Kind of Woman

Deepest Purple: The Very Best of Deep Purple
hard rock classic rock rock deep purple 70s


Strange Kind of Woman is a song by British rock band Deep Purple, and was originally released as a follow up single after "Black Night" in early 1971. The song also became a hit, peaking at #8 on UK charts, and later appeared on the re-release of their 1971 album Fireball. The track was also released on the US edition of Fireball, in lieu of the UK version's track Demon's Eye.) The song was originally called "Prostitute". Vocalist Ian Gillan introduced the song on Deep Purple in Concert: "It was about a friend of ours who got mixed up with a very evil woman and it was a sad story. They got married in the end. And a few days after they got married, the lady died." When Deep Purple performed the song live, Gillan and guitarist Ritchie Blackmore would play a guitar-vocal duel in the middle. This would always end with an extremely long, high-pitched scream from Gillan, before the band returned to playing the original song. During the song "You Don't Remember, I'll Never Forget," on Yngwie Malmsteen's Rising Force's album Trial by Fire, Yngwie Malmsteen and Joe Lynn Turner, who replaced Gillan in Deep Purple around the same time the album was released, pay tribute to Gillan and Blackmore by incorporating this guitar-vocal battle into the song after the guitar solo.


Deep Purple is an English hard rock band that formed in Hertfordshire in 1968. Together with groups such as Black Sabbath and Led Zeppelin, they're considered as heavy metal pioneers. Especially influential to later metal bands were Ian Gillan's powerful screams and Ritchie Blackmore's virtuoso solos. Deep Purple were also very influential to progressive music as well, with their style evolving over the years and incorporating a variety of genres from art rock to blues to psychedelia and more.

Strange Kind of Woman - Deep Purple

Alright

There once was a woman
A strange kind of woman
The kind that gets written down in history
Her name was nancy
Her face was nothing fancy
She left a trail of happiness and misery

I loved her
Everybody loved her
She loved everyone and gave them good return
I tried to take her
I even tried to break her
She said, I ain't for takin' won't you ever learn

I want you, I need you, I gotta be near you
I spent my money as I took my turn
I want you, I need you, I gotta be near you
Ooh, I got a strange kind of woman, yes I have

She looked like a raver
But I could never please her
On wednesday mornings boy you can't go far
I couldn't get her
But things got better, she said
Saturday nights from now on, baby, you're my star

I want you, I need you, I gotta be near you
I spent my money as I took my turn
I want you, I need you, I gotta be near you
Ooh, I got a strange kind of woman

Ooh, my soul, I love you

I want you, I need you, I gotta be near you
I spent my money as I took my turn
I want you, I need you, I gotta be near you
Ooh, I got a strange kind of woman, yes I have

She finally said she loved me
I wed her in a hurry
No more callers and I glow with pride
I'm dreaming
I feel like screaming
I won my woman just before she died

I want you, I need you, I gotta be near you
I spent my money as I took my turn
I want you, I need you, ha ha ha
Ooh, I had a strange kind of woman, yeah

She was so fat
She was the worst thing you've ever seen

Ooh, my soul, I love you, baby

- hey, thank you, thank you.
