A rose in a deep purple color suggests a beautiful old song from 1938…..
When the deep purple falls
Over sleepy garden walls
And the stars begin to twinkle in the sky
In the mist of a memory you wander back to me
Breathing my name with a sigh.
In the still of the night once again I hold you tight
Though you’re gone
Your love lives on when moonlight beams
And as long as my heart will beat
Sweet lover we’ll always meet
Here in my deep purple dreams.

Deep Purple was the biggest hit written by pianist Peter DeRose, who broadcast, 1923 to 1939, with May Singhi as “The Sweethearts of the Air” on the NBC radio network. “Deep Purple” was published in 1933 as a piano composition. The following year, Paul Whiteman had it scored for his suave “big band” orchestra that was “making a lady out of jazz” in Whiteman’s phrase. “Deep Purple” became so popular in sheet music sales that Mitchell Parish added lyrics in 1938.
It was #1 on the Hot 100 the week before John F. Kennedy was assassinated (November 22, 1963).
