|From: Shades of Deep Purple; Year: 1968; Genre: Hard Rock/Metal|
Some might not know this, but Deep Purple's Hush is actually a cover. It was originally written by Joe South and first recorded by Billy Joe Royal. However, for all tense and purpose when you think of this song it's usually Deep Purple's that comes to mind; they really made it all but their own. I like that they made this "protometal" song so heavy and musically intricate at the same point; as always, I especially love Jon Lord's keyboard throughout.
Hear Hush on YouTube.
