老歌亂談(839)Do You Know Where You're Going To

推薦 4 收藏 0 轉貼0 訂閱站台


此曲為Carole King的前夫Gerry Goffin與人合寫,1973由黑人女歌手Thelma Houston首錄發行,唯未見有何入榜成績資料。
( Thelma Houston與惠妮休斯頓無任何親戚關係 )
 
1975,Motown唱片公司和Paramount影片公司合拍了一部電影《Mahogany》( 台譯:紅木,陸譯:桃花心木 ),影片的女主角由Motown的女歌手Diana Ross出任,當然也就由Ross親自來演唱電影的主題曲,也就是這首《Do You Know Where You're Going To》。結果,影片的成績好像不怎麼樣,而主題曲卻是大紅特紅,不僅拿下告示牌和錢櫃排行榜的冠軍,還被提名電影奧斯卡獎的最佳歌曲。

原唱Thelma Houston被Ross給比了下去,想來一定有些嘔。還好的是,Thelma 在1976推出另首《Don't Leave Me This Way》,並在隔年為她贏得了一座「最佳節奏藍調女歌手」的葛萊美獎,也算是爭回了一些面子。


 
翻唱此曲的還有「翹臀珍」─Jennifer Lopez、「花蝴蝶」─Mariah Carey等,連「超級天王」─Michael Jackson也來軋上一腳,算是各有千秋吧。


 
Do you know where you're going to?
Do you like the things that life is showing you?
Where are you going to, do you know?
Do you get what you're hoping for?
When you look behind you there's no open door
What are you hoping for, do you know?
Once we were standing still in time
Chasing the fantasies that filled our minds
You knew how I loved you but my spirit was free
Laughing at the questions that you once asked of me

Do you know where you're going to?
Do you like the things that life is showing you?
Where are you going to, do you know?

Now looking back at all we planned
We let so many dreams just slip through our hands
Why must we wait so long before we see
How sad the answers to those questions can be?

Do you know where you're going to?
Do you like the things that life is showing you?
Where are you going to, do you know?
Do you get what you're hoping for?
When you look behind you there's no open door
What are you hoping for, do you know?
