I remember the first time I heard it was in Germany where we were living at the time, when we bought the album.

From a Wiki article:

The guitar solo would gain recognition when readers of Guitar World voted it No. 15 in their list of the “100 Greatest Guitar Solos”.[10]

“Highway Star”, by Deep Purple can be found on their 1972 album, “Machine Head”. It was written by Ritchie Blackore, Ian Gillan, Roger Glover, Jon Lord, ad ian Paice, and is on the EMI and Warner Bros. labels.

Nobody gonna take my car
I’m gonna race it to the ground
Nobody gonna beat my car
It’s gonna break the speed of sound
Oooh it’s a killing machine
It’s got everything
Like a driving power big fat tires
And everything
I love it and I need it
I bleed it
Yeah it’s a wild hurricane
Alright hold tight
I’m a highway star
Nobody gonna take my girl
I’m gonna keep her to the end
Nobody gonna have my girl
She stays close on every bend
Oooh she’s a killing machine
She’s got everything
Like a moving mouth body control
And everything
I love her I need her
I seed her
Yeah she turns me on
Alright hold on tight
I’m a highway star
Nobody gonna take my head
I got speed inside my brain
Nobody gonna steal my head
Now that I’m on the road again
Oooh I’m in heaven again
I’ve got everything
Like a moving ground an open road
And everything
I love it and I need it
I seed it
Eight cylinders all mine
Alright hold on tight
I’m a highway star
Nobody gonna take my car
I’m gonna race it to the ground
Nobody gonna beat my car
It’s gonna break the speed of sound
Oooh it’s a killing machine
It’s got everything
Like a driving power big fat tires
And everything
I love it and I need it
I bleed it
Yeah it’s a mad hurricane
Alright hold on tight
I’m a highway star
I’m a highway star
I’m a highway star

  1. This guy loves his car and I would never dream about taking it away from him. Great song Barbara. I read that this song was responsible for many people getting speeding tickets racing their cars while blasting this song.

    • Thanks, Jim! I guess some people get a little obsessed about their cars! I know, I read that too, about people speeding and getting tickets while listening to this song. I believe it!
      Hope this song was okay, as it did mention machine. I took the easy way though, as I posted this one before on SLS, but it had been about a year ago.
      Hope your Sunday is going good! 🙂
