Deep Purple
Nino Tempo & April Stevens Lyrics


Whoa whoa-ho-ho, whoa-ho-ho, whoa-ho-ho

When the deep purple falls over sleepy garden walls
And the stars begin to twinkle in the night
In the mist of a memory you wander all back to me
Breathing my name with a sigh

In the still of the night once again I hold you tight
Though you're gone, your love lives on when moonlight beams
And as long as my heart will beat, sweet lover, we'll always meet
Here in my deep purple dreams

When the deep purple falls over sleepy garden walls
And the stars begin to twinkle in the night
In the mist of a memory you wander back to me
Breathing my name with a sigh

In the still of the night once again I hold you tight
Though you're gone, your love lives on when moonlight beams
And as long as my heart will beat, sweet lover, we'll always meet
Here in my deep purple dreams

And as long as my heart will beat, sweet lover, we'll always meet
Here in my deep purple dreams

Whoa whoa-ho-ho, whoa-ho-ho, whoa-ho-ho

How can anyone consciously dislike this song? It's a classic! The melody is infectious. Nino and April were awesome together.

Bl Wolz

I love that song and that time period!

Brant Larson

I reckon it’s twee and cloying.
folks may find the production to be spare.
Also, verse 2, with April speaking the lyrics could seem repetitive.

Pamela Prestegard

I AGREE wholeheartedly‼️I "always" loved this song....❤️and it IS a CLASSIC‼️🎼🎵🎶🎹🎻🎸🎷💜

@Jojo GunneThe Osmond version sucks compared to Tempo and Stevens.

Gary Kerns

@sabrina london Marie was (and still is a beautiful woman) but I absolutely agree that April is much more so. Here's something I'll bet many folks don't know. Though it didn't reach the Top 40, April did chart in 1974 with "Wake Up and Love Me."

My cousins! I’ve held their Grammy for this song in my hands. 😍

@sabrina london Thanks. From everything I've heard from different people that knew him he was a really good guy and I would have loved to have met him.

sabrina london

@filmguymike Wow! So sorry you never got to know him.

filmguymike

@sabrina london Thanks, yeah he was a great guy. I've spoken with people who have recorded with him at Mercury records and others that knew him personally, sadly I never got to meet him because my mom married someone else but she had dated Vic for months and then got pregnant and panicked thinking that he would have me aborted and so she never told him and he was never able to find her again. A few of my friends who are Vic Damone fans say to me absolutely, I act and look just like him.
The father who raised me hated Vic Damone and my mom could never tell me while he was alive so I found out after he had passed away
I ran into a friend of Vic Damone's I was about 20 at the time and he was about 65 to 70 and he looked at me and he says you remember when we were shooting dice back in Brooklyn and I thought I've never been to Brooklyn and my friend said oh he's probably thinking your your Vic Damone, and the guy goes yeah Vic. My friend said no, this is his son Michael, and he just stared at me for the longest time I guess back then at age 20 I looked exactly like him. I just recently turned 60 years old but thankfully still look kind of young.
I guess I'm not alone. There's several people that he has fathered through the years. There was once a show on Oprah about it, of the illegitimate children of Vic Damone's and I watched it thinking... oh well, I'm a drop in the bucket...
I didn't mean to go on and on but thanks for your kindness and your kind words and I do believe he was a super cool dude and yes I really wish I could have met him
