Thanks for the good wishes, E. Now, maybe you have to be 65, but Deep Purple is not only the name of a band, it's a song from ... well, you have to be 65 I guess. "When the deep purple falls, over sleepy garden walls..." Later covered by the Platters in ... well, it still helps to be 65ish to remember. But you've missed the big one, The Super-Supper March from The Cat in the Hat Songbook, with the classic lyric "I could eat a goose-moose burger, fifteen pickles and a purple plum." No shortage of purple songs for the Bambina.
