此曲為蘇格蘭樂團Middle of the Road於1971發行的專輯《Acceleration》中的歌曲,單曲雖然在英國排行榜只獲得第23名,而在德國、澳洲、瑞士、挪威及荷蘭卻均為冠軍曲。

Middle of the Road成立於1967,但直到1971才以一首《Chirpy Chirpy Cheep Cheep》奪下英國排行榜的冠軍及打開了國際知名度。其間改過兩次團名 ( 改運乎?),而最關鍵的是因一直無法突破,於1970改赴義大利發展,而在該地遇到了伯樂 --- 音樂製作人Giacomo Tosti,在其主導下,展現出具特色的合音,終於破繭而出。Middle of the Road在歐洲的知名度大過於在美國,ABBA合唱團亦是如此,因而被看成是ABBA的某一種「前身」。

Sacramento,是美國加州中部的一個城市,早期譯作「沙加緬度」,據說是當年粵籍華僑 ( ) 的音譯,台灣亦採用此譯名,而現今大陸和香港則譯為「薩客拉門托」。

現在回看影音中的女主唱,有位老外歌友認為依然清純美麗 ( 也主要是因為身上沒有刺青說 )。順帶一提,樂團的吉他手和貝士手是一對親兄弟。



There's something about the weather that ev'rybody loves
They call it the Indian spring of Sacramento
And when the sun is up in the sky
The wind is blowing by the riverside most ev'ry day
You're in Sacramento - a wonderful town
Sing, sing, sing, din-di-din

There's something about the people that ev'rybody knows
That gives you a tender feeling of confusion
You're feeling lonely but you don't know
Until this other feeling here inside you starts to grow
You're in Sacramento - a wonderful town
Sing, sing, sing, din-di-din

Now that spring is near again
And you're thinking if only you were not so lonely - boo-hoo
But you can ease your restless mind (ease your restless mind)
'Cos all the people are lovin' kind in Sacramento

There's something about the weather that ev'rybody loves
They call it the Indian spring of Sacramento
You're feeling lonely but you don't know
Until this other feeling here inside you starts to grow
You're in Sacramento - a wonderful town
Sing, sing, sing, din-di-din
