老歌亂談(四十七)Rivers Of Babylon

推薦 2 收藏 0 轉貼0 訂閱站台


Boney M(邦尼 M)是來自牙買加的合唱團體,開始卻是在歐洲闖天下,1976以一首《Daddy Cool》打響名號,1978更以《Rivers Of Babylon》勇奪全英國五週冠軍並風靡全歐洲。但之後進入美國市場的成績並不理想,僅以排行三十名收場。


Boney M演唱的影音,外型很明顯由原來的純樸逐漸的走向華麗金光閃耀(不要看不起土人,只要有錢,他們也是很會打扮的)。而樂團中的那位男生,雖然跳起舞來像隻猴子,但多看幾次就覺得也還滿有特色的。  

Rivers Of Babylon》是一首傳統民謠,節奏活潑輕快旋律流暢。由於它在英國流行音樂史上的賣座佳蹟,也有評論說它是首狄斯可黃金年代的經典亦不為過。

 

Boney M的另一首歌曲《Bahama Mama》,曾被改編成國語歌《夢中的媽媽》,由甄妮演唱,應該較為大家所熟悉。

 







By the rivers of Babylon, there we sat down
Yeah, we wept, when we remembered Zion
By the rivers of Babylon, there we sat down
Yeah, we wept, when we remembered Zion
There the wicked
Carried us away in captivity
Required from us a song
Now how shall we sing the Lord's song in a strange land?
There the wicked
Carried us away in captivity
Requiring of us a song
Now how shall we sing the Lord's song in a strange land?
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
Let the words of our mouth and the meditation of our heart
Be acceptable in thy sight here tonight
Let the words of our mouth and the meditation of our hearts
Be acceptable in thy sight here tonight
By the rivers of Babylon, there we sat down
Yeah, we wept, when we remembered Zion
By the rivers of Babylon, there we sat down
Yeah, we wept, when we remembered Zion
By the rivers of Babylon (dark tears of Babylon)
There we sat down (you got to sing a song)
Yeah, we wept (sing a song of love)
When we remembered Zion (yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah)
By the rivers of Babylon (rough bits of Babylon)
There we sat down (you hear the people cry)
Yeah, we wept (they need their God)
When we remembered Zion (ooh, have the power)
By the rivers of Babylon (oh yeah yeah), there we sat down (yeah, yeah)

雖然只是幾句簡單的歌詞,我看連老外也搞不太清楚「Daddy Cool」是什麼意思。

呵呵,看來妳對長胸毛唱的比較有興趣呦。

雖然才61歲,人生經歷過這麼一場,應該也還可以了。

而經典的老歌是可以穿越時空,百聽而不厭的。

Your great learning and generosity in playing with every one of the pieces were valuable. I don't have the foggiest idea what I would have done in the event that I had not experienced such a stage this way.
