Re: Gillans obsession with Blackmore


You could find any lyric relevant to Ritchie or anything else for that matter. It's a situation where the listener reads what they want into the lyrics. If you want to find something bad enough then you can trick your mind into believing it. Any questions? Go read a Dark Side of the Moon/Wizard of Oz connection page. Most of the clues are very loose at best.

You got a point there, RS. Just check out Never A Word for a great example of this.

Someone else already hit the nail on your head. To paraphrase, it has more to do with your obsession with RB than Gillan's (if he has one, which I doubt).

You are reading into the lyric what you want to hear....

"When the shine comes off he's up to something new"

He is referring to the guy that stold his GF. He's gonna leave her and go off with a new girl. At that point she will realize how good Gillan was to her.

"Strangest people have to power..to lead me to my darkest hour"

Could be anyone, politicians, religious leaders, chicks, friends, enemies and yes even Blackmore. Notice he says "people" as in plural.
 
Haunted is simply about a chick so I think someone else here is obessed, not Gillan. Besides, wasnt it Blackmore that asked Gillan to join Rainbow way back then?

Re: Gillans obsession with Blackmore


RS touched an important question: is there a meaning (-s) in a text itself (nowdays not very popular view) or is the the text empty of menaings, 'lifeless', until someone reads it and gives it a meaning (-s). I think the latter is more true, as this debate here also suggests.

Yes, "Smooth Dancer" is about Ritchie. And of course Blackmore knew it was about him. He replied to Gillan 17 years later in the song "King Of Dreams".

"I'm a real SMOOTH DANCER", I'm a fantasy man

Master Of illusion, magic touch in my hand

All the stages are empty when I steal the scenes

A beggar of love, second hand hero, King of Dreams"
