老歌亂談(915)Girl Crush

推薦 2 收藏 0 轉貼0 訂閱站台



此曲為由Lori McKenna、Hillary Lindsey和Lize Rose三位女生共同合寫。不過剛開始由Lori提出歌名的構想時,應該是覺得有些違背世俗,Lize要Lori趕緊打消此念,但之後Lori和Hillary相互討論了一下,並由Hillary彈吉它唱出了第一段的四句歌詞,Lize聽了之後才瞭解歌曲所要呈現的內涵,由於只是想抒發寫歌者內心深處的想法,並覺得別人可能不會喜歡此曲,故未多作商業上的考量,三人在很短的時間就將此曲給完成了。

當美國鄉村樂團Little Big Town的女主唱Karen Fairchild 和Kimberly Schlapman聽到這首歌時,立刻就喜歡上了,且要求這首歌要保留給她們。Little Big Town於2014年底發行此曲,而在2015得到「美國鄉村音樂協會」的「年度最佳歌曲及單曲」的兩個獎項。次年,2016被提名三項葛萊美獎,結果抱回了年度「最佳鄉村團體」和「最佳鄉村歌曲」兩座獎項。

此歌名中的「crush」,並非作一般熟知的「碎裂」解,而是有「著迷」或是「迷戀」之意。情迷一個女生,且由女歌手唱出,很難不令人聯想到「同性戀」上去。但其實這是首「妒嫉」或是「羨慕」的歌曲,女主角在愛情的競逐中落敗,曾在一起 ( 或只是心儀?) 的男子喜歡上別人,而讓自己覺得,若也擁有對手的條件,像是金色長髮、同款的香水……,男子應也同樣會喜歡上自己。更誇張的是,她想親對手的嘴唇,因為可以體嚐男子相同的感受 ( I want to taste her lips, Yeah, 'cause they taste like you )。誠如LBT主唱Karen在初聽此曲時說的,從未有一首嫉羨愛情的鄉村歌曲是以此種方式呈現,或也因題材的特殊性,才會得到眾多的矚目及獲獎。愛情失意後,的確該好好的檢討、補強自己,也才更有機會期待下一次的勝利。

I got a girl crush
Hate to admit it but
I got a heart rush
Ain't slowing down
I got it real bad
Want everything she has
That smile and that midnight laugh
She's giving you now
I want to taste her lips
Yeah, 'cause they taste like you
I want to drown myself
In a bottle of her perfume
I want her long blonde hair
I want her magic touch
Yeah, 'cause maybe then
You'd want me just as much
I got a girl crush
I got a girl crush
I don't get no sleep
I don't get no peace
Thinking about her
Under your bed sheets
The way that she's whispering
The way that she's pulling you in
Lord knows I've tried,
I can't get her off my mind
I want to taste her lips
Yeah, 'cause they taste like you
I want to drown myself
In a bottle of her perfume
I want her long blonde hair
I want her magic touch
Yeah, 'cause maybe then
You'd want me just as much
I got a girl crush
I got a girl crush
Hate to admit it but
I got a heart rush
It ain't slowing down
