老歌亂談(51)Please Help Me I'm Falling

推薦 2 收藏 0 轉貼0 訂閱站台



The Everly Brothers
(艾佛利兄弟)是六零年代非常出名的二重唱團體,雖然走的是民謠鄉村曲風,但由於合聲優美,受到甚多人的喜愛。我記得當時喜歡西洋歌曲的人,大概都會唱他們的《All I Have To Do Is Dream》和《Let It Be Me》這兩首,而他們的好歌當然不只這些,還有像《Crying In The Rain》、《Cathy`s Clown………等一堆,等以後有機會再來介紹。 

今天的這首《Please Help Me I`m Falling》的原唱應該是Hank Locklin,但在眾多其他的版本中聽來聽去,我還是比較喜歡Everly Brother唱的(黃鶯鶯唱的也不錯)。而有趣的事情來了,這首歌還有「回答歌」----I Can`t Help You I`m Falling Too》,回答歌就是填上新歌詞來回應原歌,這也是我的偶像Skeeter Davis(史琪特戴維斯)的傑作,她好像很喜歡搞這一套,她的另一首《My Last Date》,也是首回答歌。

 

人家原歌是要尋求幫忙解救,史琪特大姐卻來個I`m falling too,唉!真是的。

 






please help me I'm falling in love with you

You say that you're falling but what can I do 

 

close the door to temptation don't let me walk through

You want me to help you but I'm falling too


Turn away from me darling I'm begging you to

I know that we're wrong dear but when I'm with you


Please help me I'm falling in love with you

I can't help you darling cause I'm falling too

I belong to another whose arms have grown cold

You belong to another who's arms have grown cold


But I promised forever to have and to hold

But you must keep the vows dear although they're grown old


I can never be free dear but when I'm with you

You can never be free dear though our love is through


I know that I'm losing the will to be true

I can't help you darling cause I'm falling too

Please help me I'm falling and that would be sin

We could never be happy living in sin

Close the door to temptation don't let me walk in

Our love's a temptation but we just can't win


For I mustn't want you but darling I do

You ask me to help you but why can I do

please help me I'm falling in love with you

I can't help you darling cause I'm falling too

很適合在埃及搭熱氣球的旅客唱。

搭乘熱汽球確實很恐怖,不是只有往下掉,還有失控直接飛去見上帝的,又不知該唱哪一首了?呵呵!

女聲第6行,最後一字,我聽她唱的是 cold

之前我也覺得唱的是cold,但遍查歌詞,怎麼全都是old?再看前後文也沒十足把握,只得「從錯如流」又改回old。或許中國字的「射」和「矮」也是在這種心態之下弄反的吧。

從「矮」和「射」談起

說了老半天,也只是推論假設而已。

不管是巧合還是本來就正確,反正也沒人想要翻案正名,繼續用就是了。

射和矮之間發生了什麼事?
2013-03-07 15:29:56
版主回應
妳不覺得「寸、身」是在形容矮?
另,「委、矢」又像是代表射的意思?
兩個字好像是弄反了,但看了推研說明,我想應該是有趣的巧合。
