Wasn't sure if I should post this topic in this forum or the "proto-prog" forum... but I think this song is definitely progressive rock. Anyway, just wanted to say that I think "Child in Time" by Deep Purple is the best rock song ever made. There aren't really enough words that one can use to describe how perfect this song is... but it really is just a thing of beauty! In particular, Gillan's spine-tingling screams and Blackmore's unbelievable guitar solo. The song just builds and builds, with multiple climaxes. The whole thing is just an orgasm for my ears.

It's an incredible achievement and defined classic heavy rock for at least a decade in my opinion.

hate to bring it to you, but Child In Time was musically lifted by Purple from It's A Beautyful Day' s Bonbay Calling 
 
 
 
But it"'s still one of my fave Purple track, though.
 
 
BTW, They did the same with Lazy and IABD's Don & Dewey

I never really got the last one, Don & Dewey ripped off Purple's Wring that Neck because Purple stole first Bombay Calling. I don't see where Lazy fits the picture.

Deep Purple sadly ripped off many songs like Smoke on the Water from a jazz song Maria Moite by Astrud Gilberto and Gil Evans. Also Black Night from Ricky Nelson's Summertime and Burn from George Gershwin's Fascinating Rhythm. But they are still cool.
Music is some kind of art.

Deep Purple and many other bands from the time, there's nothing really wrong with it, it was something pretty common from the time as far as I'm concerned.

I'm afraid to say I only know Dream Theater's version, and I do think it's very good. But I wouldn't call it the greatest song of all time.

 I don't hear much of Wring That Neck in Don & Dewey at all. ConfusedEmbarrassedConfused
 
And the Purple story goes that Purple would've allowed this as part of the price to pay for ripping off  BC
 
You might however listen and compare D&D and Lazy >>> It's strikingly the same

As much as I like Child In Time it's certainly not the best rock song ever made - there is no such thing Wink

While I like Child In Time a lot, I do feel that it (and the whole In Rock album) are overly praised. It's good hard rock with some progressive elements, but it didn't blow my mind the way a lot of other music has.

while Child In Time is a blatant rip-off, I don't think they took Smoke On The Water from that old tune. Yes, the pattern is identical, but it's typical blues scale with a blue note, only played with heavy riff. It was a question of time when someone would stumble upon it. It's like saying The Eagles took 'Hotel California' from Tull's 'We Used To Know'. Perhaps they did, but the chord progression is very natural for anyone who's dabbling around with guitar.
