老歌亂談(855)Mendocino

推薦 4 收藏 0 轉貼0 訂閱站台



此曲為美國鄉村搖滾樂團The Sir Douglas Quintet於1969所推出專輯《Mendocino》的同名主打歌曲,在告示牌熱門榜獲得第27名。

The Sir Douglas Quintet於1964成立於德州的San Antonio ( 聖安東尼奧 ),由於當時英國樂團大舉侵入美國
造成風潮 ( British Invasion ) ,是而故意取了個有些像是英國樂團的團名,就是想藉由「魚目混珠」來得到一些注意。而問題是,五名團員中有二人為西班牙裔,所以在早期的樂團相片中,會刻意以側面來避開,以免立即就穿幫了。

樂團的靈魂人物,當然就是主唱Doug Sahm了。Sham在5歲時就已上電台表演,11歲時出了第一張唱片;1952,12歲時在Skyline俱樂部和鄉村歌曲傳奇人物Hank Williams同台作秀 ( Hank Williams於1953的新年,在趕赴下一場作秀所時死在車上,Skyline也是他最後作秀的場所),13歲時受邀至Grand Ole Opry ( 位於田納西州的納許維爾,固定每週一次的鄉村歌曲表演場所,能名列此表演舞台的歌手,代表在鄉村音樂受到一定程度的肯定。) 作固定演出,但Sahm的母親要他先將初中唸完。
 



Grand  Ole Opry的表演舞台

Doug Sahm頗具寫歌才華,1965,The Sir Douglas Quintet即以一首他所寫的《She's About a Mover》分別打進美、英排行榜的第13及第15名 ( 後此曲被前披頭合唱團的鼓手Ringo Starr翻唱,出現在他1983的專輯《Old Wave》中 ),而此首《Mendocino》也是Doug Sahm所寫。Mendocino為美國加州的一個地區名,2010年的人口普查,該社區的人口數為894人,約93%為白人。由歌詞來看,應該是個悠閒生活的好地方。
 



Mendocino California


Teeny Bopper, my teenage lover
I caught your waves last night
It sent my mind to wonderin'
You're such a groove
Please don't move
Please stay in my love house by the river
Fast talkin' guys with strange red eyes
Have put things in your head
And started your mind to wonderin'
I love you so, please don't go
Please stay here with me in Mendocino
Mendocino, Mendocino
Where life's such a groove
You blow your mind in the morning
We used to walk through the park
Make love along the way in Mendocino
(Ah, play it, Augie! Yeah!)
Hey!
Like I told you, Can you dig it?
If you wanna groove, I'll be glad to have you
'Cause I love you so, please don't go
Please stay here with me in Mendocino
Mendocino, Mendocino
Where life's such a groove
You blow your mind in the morning
We used to walk through the park
Make love along the way in Mendocino
Mendocino, Mendocino, Mendocino

This is very old song but still it lives in the heart of the people. I love listening to this song the rock music and guitar tunes with great lyrics of this makes me faltered for this song. I like latest trend musical songs but when I heard this song I become big fan of old beetle type music and started listen those types of songs.
