老歌亂談(693)Get It On

推薦 1 收藏 0 轉貼0 訂閱站台


英國的Tyrannosaurus Rex ( 雷克斯暴龍 ) 樂團組成於1967,至1970才將團名簡化為T. Rex,之後在外型上作中性或異性的妝扮,而成為帶動glam rock ( 華麗搖滾 ) 的先驅樂團。


Glam Rock Band  --- T.Rex

此首《Get It On》是T. Rex的靈魂人物Marc Bolan ( 原名為Mark Feld,據說Bolan為取自Bob Dylan名字的前後。) 所寫。他也不諱言,原本一直很想翻唱Chuck Berry的一首《Little Queenie》,故而採用了與L.Q.雷同的riff ( 在歌曲中會重複出現的一段旋律 ),甚至在歌曲淡出結束前,直接引用了L.Q.中的一句歌詞「And meanwhile, I'm still thinking」。此曲於1971推出後,登上了英國排行榜的冠軍。之後在美國發行,但為了避免與美國樂團Chase的同名歌混淆,將歌名改為《Bang a Gong (Get It On)》,而在美國告示牌只獲得了第10名。

其實這是一首有關於「性」的歌曲,但因呈現的意像隱晦不清,許多人恐未能察覺到。「get it on」在美國的俚語為「上床」「性交」的意思。「Bang a Gong」也非「敲鑼」,在70年代是「用鼻子吸毒品」的隱語。

Marc Bolan曾結過一次婚 (1970─1974 ),後與他的合音歌手Gloria Jones在一起,還生了個兒子。1977/09/16,由Gloria Jones開車載他自餐廳返家,途中車子失控撞上了路邊的一棵梧桐樹,Gloria Jones受傷骨折,Marc Bolan則當場死亡,享年29歲。

倫敦的街頭藝人彈唱此曲亦具有相當的水準


Well you're dirty and sweet, clad in black
Don't look back and I love you
You're dirty and sweet, oh yeah
Well you're slim and you're weak
You've got the teeth of a hydra upon you
You're dirty sweet and you're my girl

Get it on, bang the gong, get it on
Get it on, bang the gong, get it on

You're built like a car,
You've got a hub cap diamond star halo
You're built like a car, oh yeah
You're an untamed youth that's the truth
With your cloak full of eagles
You're dirty sweet and you're my girl

Get it on, bang the gong, get it on
Get it on, bang the gong, get it on

You're windy and wild,
You've got the blues in your shoes and your stockings
You're windy and wild, oh yeah
You're built like a car,
You've got a hub cap diamond star halo
You're dirty sweet and you're my girl

Get it on, bang the gong, get it on
Get it on, bang the gong, get it on

You're dirty and sweet,
Clad in black, don't look back and I love you
You're dirty and sweet, oh yeah
You dance when you walk so let's dance,
Take a chance, understand me
You're dirty sweet and you're my girl

Get it on, bang the gong, get it on
Get it on, bang the gong, get it on

Get it on, bang the gong, get it on
Get it on

Get it on, bang the gong, get it on
Get it on, bang the gong, get it on

Get it on, bang the gong, get it on
Get it on, bang the gong, get it on

Take me
For a meanwhile I'm still thinking
