Gillan & Glover “Clouds and Rain”

I had a demo of this chord sequence a few years before discovering the song that was hiding in it, and that happened quite suddenly while we were recording Accidentally On Purpose in Air Studios, Montserrat.  Inspired by a romantic adventure, I wrote the words in about ten minutes one morning.  They just tumbled out fully formed.  Sometimes it happens like that, it can’t be predicted or anticipated.  The title came from something Ian Gillan had read in a book, allegedly a phrase meaning pure bliss or rapture.

The video is from a promotion trip we undertook somewhere.  As you can imagine, we were quite surprised at the abrupt ending.  Maybe someone tripped over a cable, or they ran out of time, or maybe just got bored.
