老歌亂談(286)Stoney

推薦 2 收藏 0 轉貼0 訂閱站台



說起灰狼Lobo這位美國歌手,年輕朋友可能並不熟悉,也難怪啦!他老兄在美國流行音樂界也算不上是什麼大牌歌星,但當年在台灣卻是紅得可以。究其因,這和西洋音樂DJ前輩余光先生可能有些關係,也可以說是余先生「慧眼識英雄」啦!常在節目中介紹他的歌。不過,70年代聽西洋歌曲的眾歌友們幾乎都喜歡灰狼的歌,倒應該是個不爭的事實。

Lobo原名Roland Kent LaVoie,其實他出道甚早 (1961),先後參加過幾個熱門合唱團,但都沒什麼表現。直至1971年改名灰狼後,推出首張個人單曲《Me and You and a Dog Named Boo》即打入美國排行榜第4名,也獲得銷售量超過百萬張的金唱片,算是他的成名曲。緊接著1972也有兩首進入前10名的歌曲 (《I'd Love You to Want Me》/ # 2、《Don't Expect Me to Be Your Friend》/ # 8 ),再來雖然也有不少進榜歌曲,但已是每下愈況了。

很奇怪,這首台灣老歌友們非常喜歡的《Stoney》,竟然查無資料。我認為應該也是1973年左右的歌,或許是當年未收錄在美國的專輯中,而只有在海外版發行之故。

Fatty?呵呵!這位老兄的眼光和我真的差很多。




I've known her since we both were kids
I recall the silly things we did
She would want to ride upon my back
To keep from stepping on a crack
I didn't think of it back then
But even when she did not win
She was happy just to play
Stoney liked to live out every day
Stoney, happy all the time
Stoney, life is summertime
The joy you find in living every day
Stoney, how I love your simple ways
The times when no one understood
Seems that Stoney always would
We'd walk for hours in the sand
She would always try and hold my hand
Stoney, happy all the time
Stoney, liked the summertime
The joy you find in living every day
Stoney, how I love your simple ways
Now, I don't recollect the time
I fell in love with this old friend of mine
Or when I first saw in her eyes
What she tried so not to hide
Stoney, happy all the time
Stoney, liked the summertime
The joy you find in living every day
Stoney, how I love your simple ways
Stoney, happy all the time
Stoney, liked the summertime
The joy you find in living every day
Stoney, how I love your simple ways
Stoney, happy all the time
Stoney, liked the summertime
The joy you find in living every day
Stoney, how I love your simple ways

除了《I'd Love You to Want Me》、《Stoney》---已貼
另《Me and You and a Dog Named Boo》---貴台貼過了
大家比較熟悉的大概也只剩《How can I tell her》了---下次再來貼

歌曲好不好聽見仁見智,妳覺得是他最有名的作品(我也覺得很棒)
但在美國排行榜的名次是#22
