In 1984, British rock legends Deep Purple released their 11th studio album titled Perfect Strangers. They released three singles from the album, Knocking at Your Back Door, Perfect Strangers, and Nobody’s Home. All three singles were top 20 hits on the Mainstream Rock charts in the U.S. The title track, Perfect Strangers was the second single released, and it peaked at number 12 on the rock charts in 1985. Guitarist Ritchie Blackmore has called Perfect Strangers his favorite Deep Purple song, and it’s definitely one of our favorites as well.
