Song of the Day #1999

Song of the Day: Better Call Saul (“Smoke on the Water”), composed and performed by Ritchie Blackmore, Ian Gillan, Roger Glover, Jon Lord, and Ian Paice of the English rock band Deep Purple. This song, which hit #4 on the Billboard Hot 100, chronicles the 1971 fire at Montreux Casino. It appears on the band’s 1972 album, “Machine Head“. It also projects much symbolism in Season 1, Episode 10 (“Marco”) of BCS. Jimmy McGill hums the famous guitar riff at the end of this episode before the credits roll into the original.
