The song also became a hit, peaking at No. The remix by Roger Glover later appeared on the re-release of the band's album Fireballwhile the original version can be found on various Deep Purple compilations. The song was originally called "Prostitute". Quitting Time - CPI - Chinchillin Ian Strange Kind Of Woman - Deep Purple - Made In Japan introduced the song on Deep Purple in Concert : "It was about a friend of ours who got mixed up with a very evil woman and it was a sad story.
They got married in the end. And a few days after they got married, the lady died. I loved her in a strange post-adolescent-pre-adult way, but then so did quite a lot of other people.
She loved them too and gave them good return for their money. I failed miserably when I tried to break her from the habit…she said it wasn't a habit, it was her life and what did I know anyway? I did get promoted from Wednesday morning trysts to Saturday evening dates sort of.
The fact is, this song is not about one woman…but a compilation of thrills and disappointments, and such a package can only be called Nancy. I grew up fast…the innocence died and, in the category…My Woman… all claims were relinquished. When Deep Purple performed the song live, Gillan and guitarist Ritchie Blackmore would play a guitar-vocal duel in the middle. This would always end with an extremely long, high-pitched scream from Gillan before the band returned to playing the original song.
