You might know the song. Hush by Deep Purple was originally written by Joe South. Sadly the songwriter has gone south for good. He passed away at the age of 72. Hush was also covered many years later by Kula Shaker. Deep Purple recorded Hush twice with both Ian Gillan and Rod Evans.
Other songs of note: The Purple People Eater Meets the Witch Doctor, Games People Play, Walk A Mile In My Shoes, Don’t It Make You Want to Go Home, Down in the Boondocks and (I Never Promised You a) Rose Garden.
