老歌亂談(685)Manic Monday

推薦 1 收藏 0 轉貼0 訂閱站台



美國女子搖滾樂團The Bangles ( 手鐲 )於1980在洛杉磯成立,最初的成員為Susanna Hoffs與Vicki & Debbi Peterson這對姐妹花,之 後才有Bass手的加入。

出了幾首單曲和一張迷你專輯 ( EP ) 之後,至1984,The Bangles終於發行了一張完整的專題《All Over The Place》,其中的《Hero Takes a Fall》以及翻唱自Katrina and the Waves的《Going Down To Liverpool》,都得到不錯的評價,尤其是後者的音樂影帶,由在《星艦迷航記》中飾演史巴克的Leonard Nimoy為之跨刀演出 ( 緣由是Hoffs和Nimoy兩家為朋友關係 )。這些引起了知名歌手和音樂人Prince ( 王子 ) 的注意,而主動連繫The Bangles,並說要提供歌曲給她們。

結果王子帶給The Bangles的就是此首《Manic Monday》。而此首歌原本是要給也是女子團體Apollonia 6的,甚至都已錄音完成,但在最後一刻,還是被王子給拉了下來。在寫歌界謠傳,王子提供此首歌給The Bangles,是為換得Susanna Hoffs「陪睡」的回報,但此謠傳當然未能獲得證實。依據「Who's Dated Who」網站的資料,Susanna Hoffs和王子在1986確實有交往過。2016,王子因過度使用亦會造成興奮的止痛藥Fentanyl ( 芬太奴 ) 而意外死亡,享年57歲。


此首《Manic Monday》收錄在The Bangles 的第2張專輯《Different Light》( 1986 ) 中,雖然此專輯在美國共有4首入榜歌曲,而《Manic Monday》在美、英均獲得第2名的佳績,應是The Bangles最為知名的代表作。

此為2008(非2010)的現場演唱,時主唱Susanna Hoffs已49歲,但仍相當的有風韻


Six o'clock already
I was just in the middle of a dream
I was kissin' Valentino
By a crystal blue Italian stream
But I can't be late
'Cause then I guess I just won't get paid
These are the days
When you wish your bed was already made

It's just another manic Monday
I wish it was Sunday
'Cause that's my fun day
My I don't have to run day
It's just another manic Monday

Have to catch an early train
Got to be to work by nine
And if I had an air-o-plane
I still couldn't make it on time
'Cause it takes me so long
Just to figure out what I'm gonna wear
Blame it on the train
But the boss is already there

It's just another manic Monday
I wish it was Sunday
'Cause that's my fun day
My I don't have to run day
It's just another manic Monday

All of the nights
Why did my lover have to pick last night
To get down
Doesn't it matter
That I have to feed the both of us
Employment's down
He tells me in his bedroom voice
C'mon honey, let's go make some noise
Time it goes so fast
(When you're having fun)

It's just another manic Monday
I wish it was Sunday
'Cause that's my fun day
My I don't have to run day
It's just another manic Monday
I wish it was Sunday
'Cause that's my fun day
It's just another manic Monday
