老歌亂談(910)He's a Rebel

推薦 2 收藏 0 轉貼0 訂閱站台



此首《He's a Rebel》本來是要寫給美國黑人女子團體The Shirelles的,但由於該團體當時的聲望下滑,因而被交給另位女歌手Vikki Carr,作為她出道的單曲首發炮。而這事被另家唱片公司的老闆兼製作人Phil Spector知道了,由於之前聽過此曲的「示範帶」,認定這會是首暢銷曲,決意要讓旗下的女子團體The Crystals來翻唱,且欲搶在Vikki Carr之前上市銷售。但問題是,當時The Crystals正在3000哩外的紐約巡演,無法立即趕回錄音,Phil Spector靈機一動,找了洛杉磯當地的女子團體The Blossoms來錄唱,而卻是以The Crystals的名義來發行。

Phil Spector的這一招果然有效,此曲在1962的11月登上了美國流行排行榜的冠軍寶座。最嘔的當然是The Blossoms的主唱Darlene Love了,明明是自己唱出的冠軍曲,卻因只是代唱的合約關係而不得吭聲 ( 據說只拿了5000美元的酬勞。其實Darlene Love另有私心,她希望Phil Spector能替她出個人單曲,甚至在此曲之後還又代唱了一首。之後Spector簽下了她,也出了幾首單曲,但成績都不怎麼樣,較知名的應該是那首《Christmas ( Baby Please Come Home )》了。) 由於殺出了程咬金,使得Vikki Carr的版本大受影響,只得到了116名,並直到3年後才有入榜歌曲。而The Crystals則從未公開說該曲非由她們所唱,且為了配合代唱者Darlene Love的聲音,將當時年僅15歲的第二主唱Dolores “LaLa” Brooks躍升為主唱,之後該團的熱門曲《Then He Kissed Me》及《Da Doo Ron Ron》也都是由Brooks主唱。

雖然當時紐約的某位DJ,注意到正在巡演的The Crystals因時空問題,認為此曲的發行有些蹊蹺,但無確切證據,又各當事人也都「緊閉雙唇」,故此「醜聞」當時並未爆發,直到2000年後才由Darlene Love、LaLa Brooks等各自向音樂媒體證實。

歌名的Rebel有「叛逆者」( 浪子?) 的意思,許多女生就是喜歡那種外表看來壞壞的男生。叛逆小子最典型的代表人物,當屬銀幕上的James Dean ( 詹姆斯‧狄恩 ) 了,可惜他英年早逝。台長最近在看大陸劇《正陽門下》,劇中的男主角韓春明 ( 朱亞文飾 ),也有點那麼個味道。朱亞文目前在大陸是當紅的小生,粉絲稱這位帥哥為「變態帥」,可見雖為離經叛道或是特立獨行的人物,也還是會有愛慕者的。

亂談(326)Then He Kissed Me





See the way he walks down the street
Watch the way he shuffles his feet
My, he holds his head up high
When he goes walking by, he's my guy

When he holds my hand, I'm so proud
'Cause he's not just one of the crowd
My baby's always the one to try
the things they've never done
And just because of that, they say

He's a rebel and he'll never ever be any good
He's a rebel 'cause he never ever does what he should
But just because he doesn't do what everybody else does
That's no reason why I can't give him all my love

He's always good to me, always treats me tenderly
'Cause he's not a rebel, oh, no, no, no
He's not a rebel, oh, no, no, no, to me

If they don't like him that way
They won't like me after today
I'll be standing right by his side when they say

He's a rebel and he'll never ever be any good
He's a rebel 'cause he never ever ever does what he should
Just because he doesn't do what everybody else does
That's no reason why we can't share a love

He's always good to me, good to him, I try to be
'Cause he's not a rebel, oh, no, no, no
He's not a rebel, oh, no, no, no, to me

Oh, he's not a rebel, oh, no, no, no
He's not a rebel, oh, no, no, no
He's not a rebel, oh, no, no, no
He's not a rebel, oh, no, no, no

He's not a rebel, oh, no, no, no
He's not a rebel, oh, no, no, no
He's not a rebel, oh, no, no, no
He's not a rebel, oh, no, no, no
