老歌亂談(797)North to Alaska

推薦 2 收藏 0 轉貼0 訂閱站台



此曲為1960的喜劇電影《North to Alaska》( 台譯:北國尋金記 ) 的同名主題曲,歌曲內容也是在敘說電影的故事。主角Sam McCord ( 約翰韋恩飾 ) 受淘金夥伴George Pratt ( 史都華格蘭傑飾 ) 之託,赴西雅圖將其未婚妻接來,熟知未婚妻已另嫁他人,結果找了位神女Michelle “Angel”( 卡普西妮飾 ) 來瓜代,接著發生了一連串錯綜複雜的劇情。




女主角Capucine原為法國模特兒,1990因生病及憂鬱從她在瑞士的八樓寓所躍下身亡,享年62歲。


此首《North to Alaska》係由鄉村搖滾歌手Johnny Horton主唱,1960在告示牌西部/鄉村榜奪得冠軍,另在熱門榜也獲得第4名。可惜Horton未能好好的享受此殊榮,此曲才發行沒多久,Horton即因車禍不幸身亡 ( 35歲 )。他的妻子,之前也曾是鄉村歌手指標人物Hank Williams的老婆,連嫁了兩任歌手丈夫均早逝,這種人生的挫折頗值同情。而從另一方面來看,繼承了豐厚的歌曲版稅權利金,也足堪以安慰了!

Way up north (North To Alaska)
Way up north (North To Alaska)
North to Alaska
They're goin' North, the rush is on
North to Alaska
They're goin' North, the rush is on
Big Sam left Seattle in the year of '92
With George Pratt, his partner, and brother, Billy, too
They crossed the Yukon River and found the bonanza gold
Below that old white mountain just a little south-east of Nome
Sam crossed the majestic mountains to the valleys far below
He talked to his team of huskies as he mushed on through the snow
With the northern lights a-running wild in the land of the midnight sun
Yes, Sam McCord was a mighty man in the year of nineteen-one
Where the river is winding
Big nuggets they're finding
North to Alaska
They're goin' North, the rush is on
Way up north (North To Alaska)
Way up north (North To Alaska)
North to Alaska
They're goin' North, the rush is on
North to Alaska
They're goin' North, the rush is on
George turned to Sam with his gold in his hand
Said "Sam you're a-lookin'at a lonely, lonely man"
"I'd trade all the gold that's buried in this land"
"For one small band of gold to place on sweet little Ginnie's hand"
"'Cos a man needs a woman to love him all the time"
"Remember, Sam, a true love is so hard to find"
"I'd build for my Ginnie, a honeymoon home"
"Below that old white mountain just a little south-east of Nome"
Where the river is winding
Big nuggets they're finding
North to Alaska
They're goin' North, the rush is on
North to Alaska
They're goin' North, the rush is on
Way up north (North To Alaska)
Way up north (North To Alaska)
Way up north (North To Alaska)
Way up north (North To Alaska)
Way up north (North To Alaska)
