Deep Purple - Hush




The song was recorded by British hard rock band Deep Purple for their 1968 debut album Shades of Deep Purple. The track became the group's first hit single peaking at number 4 on the Hot 100 on 21–28 September 1968 and number 2 in Canada while going largely unnoticed in the United Kingdom. A live, US-televised version of "Hush" appeared as a bonus track on the 2000 CD-reissue of the Shades of Deep Purple album.


In 1968, Hugh Hefner introduced Deep Purple, who performed live on the Playboy After Dark TV series. After Hefner heard a ghost story from Jon Lord and had a guitar lesson from Ritchie Blackmore, Deep Purple performed "Hush" which is available in the Playboy After Dark -2nd Collection 2007 DVD release.




In celebration of the band's 20th anniversary, Deep Purple re-recorded the song in 1988 for their album Nobody's Perfect. The track was released as a single and reached number 62 on the UK singles chart and number 44 on the US Hot Mainstream Rock chart.






Lyrics


I got a certain little girl she's on my mind

No doubt about it she looks so fine

She's the best girl that I ever had

Sometimes she's gonna make me feel so bad


Hush, hush

I thought I heard her calling my name now

Hush, hush

She broke my heart but I love her just the same now

Hush, hush

Thought I heard her calling my name now

Hush, hush

I need her loving and I'm not to blame now


(Love, love)

They got it early in the morning

(Love, love)

They got it late in the evening

(Love, love)

Well, I want that, need it

(Love, love)

Oh, I gotta gotta have it


She's got loving like quicksand

Only took one touch of her hand

To blow my mind and I'm in so deep

That I can't eat and I can't sleep


Listen

Hush, hush

Thought I heard her calling my name now

Hush, hush

She broke my heart but I love her just the same now

Hush, hush

Thought I heard her calling my name now

Hush, hush

I need her loving and I'm not to blame now


(Love, love)

They got it early in the morning

(Love, love)

They got it late in the evening

(Love, love)

Well, I want that, need it

(Love, love)

Oh, I gotta gotta have it
