"Highway Star" is one of British rock group Deep Purple's most famous songs. The song is the opening track on the 1972 album Machine Head and is the fastest song (tempo-wise) on the album. It is characterised by a long classically-inspired guitar solo and organ solo. Organist Jon Lord claimed that the organ and guitar solos were based on Bach-like chord sequences.
