老歌亂談(686)What Am I Living For

推薦 2 收藏 0 轉貼0 訂閱站台



美國黑人歌手Chuck Willis是因為參加才藝比賽,而被當時的一位DJ -- Zenas Sears相中,並擔任其經紀人而步入歌壇。1956從Columbia轉入Atlantic唱片公司,1957翻唱了一首於1924年發行的老歌《C.C. Rider》,此曲或稱作《See See Rider》,是敘述一名對感情不忠貞的愛人─「See see rider, see what you have done,」。也刻意以see see和easy的發音相近,而隱喻為Easy Rider之義。不僅奪得了告示牌R & B榜的冠軍,也跨入了熱門榜拿下第12名,唱片當然是跟著大賣。



又電視圈的名人Dick Clark在「American Bandstand」節目中,以《C.C. Rider》歌曲來介紹青少年的舞蹈「The Stroll」( 漫步舞?),而使得此舞步大為風行。Chuck Willis看準了時機,緊接著又推出一首同樣是The Stroll節奏的歌曲《Betty and Dupree》,而使他博得了「The King of The Stroll」的封號。



正當Chuck Willis在歌壇開始發燙,卻因為經常喝酒過多又平時疏於照護的「胃潰瘍」進了醫院,未料最後因併發「腹膜炎」死在手術台上。由於不太確定Chuck Willis的出生年份是1926或1928,他死時才30或32歲。

此首《What Am I Living For》是在Chuck Willis死前的兩週發行,雖然只是另首《Hang up My Rock and Roll Shoes》的B面,最後仍衝上了R & B榜的冠軍,在天國的Chuck Willis或許也有所知吧!






《What Am I Living For》
What am I living for if not for you,
What am I living for if not for you,
What am I living for if not for you,
Oh nobody else, nobody else will do

What am I longing for each lonely night,
To feel your lips to mine, to hold you tight
You'll be the only girl my whole life through,
Oh nobody else, nobody else will do

I want you close to me that's all I know,
I want you all the time because darling I love you so

What am I living for if not for you,
What am I living for if not for you,
What am I living for if not for you,
Baby nobody else, nobody else will do

What am I living for if not for you,
Darling nobody else, nobody else will do
Nobody else, nobody else will do

《C.C. Rider》
Well now see, C. C. Rider,
Well now see, see what you have done.
Well now see, C. C. Rider,
Well now see, see what you have done.
Well you made me love you woman,
Now your man has come.
So I'm goin' away now, baby
And I won't be back till Fall,
I'm goin' away now baby
And I won't be back till Fall,
Just might find me a good girl
Might not be comin' back at all.
Well now see, C. C. Rider,
See now the moon is shining bright,
Well now see, C. C. Rider,
See now the moon is shining bright,
Just might find me that good girl
And everything would be alright.
