老歌亂談(953)Surf City

推薦 3 收藏 0 轉貼0 訂閱站台



海灘少年 ( The Beach Boys ) 樂團團員Brian Wilson在某個派對中遇到相識的二重唱團體Jan and Dean,Brian秀他寫的新歌《Surfin' U.S.A.》給倆人聽,倆人建議此曲可作為他們的新單曲,但遭到Brian的拒絕,因該曲是要寫給自己的樂團唱的。結果Brian又示範了另首暫時取名為《Goody Connie Won't You Come Back Home》的開頭部份,並表示自己對此曲的興趣不大且應該永遠都不會寫完。之後Jan Berry接著將此曲完成 ( 其實Dean Torrence也貢獻了部份的詞曲,但並未要求掛名。),再改名成為此首《Surf City》。
 

The Beach Boys,最右者為 Brain Wilson

1963,Jan and Dean發行了此首《Surf City》,兩個月後,不僅攻上了全國排行榜 ( National Record Charts ) 的第1名,並在告示牌流行排行榜的冠軍寶座停留了兩週,也是第一首拿下排行榜的「衝浪歌曲」。歌曲紅了,Brian倒沒後悔,認為雖然成為別個團體的冠軍曲,但自己參與寫作,與有榮焉。但他的父親Murry,也是The Beach Boys的經紀人,則對Brian浪費了一次給自己團體冠軍曲的機會而感到憤怒,並直呼Jan Berry是「record pirate」。

歌詞的第一句:Two girls for every boy,每位男孩可以有兩位女孩?有位影音的回應者說:有這麼好康的地方?!他也想去。呵呵! 1991,二重唱之一的Dean Torrence搬到了加州橙縣的一個城市---Huntington Beach ( 杭亭頓海灘 ),協助說服當選的官員,將此城市正式暱稱為「Surf City, USA」。在與加州另個城市Santa Cruz往返多次的「爭名」訴訟後,Huntington Beach於2006正式註冊成為「Surf City, USA」,至2009,此城市中有超過65家的公司行號,其名稱中含有「Surf City」。

亂談(322) Surfin' U.S.A.


Two girls for every boy
I bought a '30 Ford wagon and we call it a woodie
(Surf City, here we come)
You know it's not very cherry, it's an oldie but a goodie
(Surf City, here we come)
Well, it ain't got a back set or a rear window
But it still gets me where I wanna go
And we're goin' to Surf City, 'cause it's two to one
You know we're goin' to Surf City, gonna have some fun
You know we're goin' to Surf City, 'cause it's two to one
You know we're goin' to Surf City, gonna have some fun, now
Two girls for every boy
They say they never roll the streets up 'cause there's always somethin' goin'
(Surf City, here we come)
You know they're either out surfin' or they got a party growin'
(Surf City, here we come)
Yeah, and there's two swingin' honeys for every guy
And all you gotta do is just wink your eye
And we're goin' to Surf City, gonna have some fun, now
You know we're goin' to Surf City, 'cause it's two to one
You know we're goin' to Surf City, gonna have some fun
You know we're goin' to Surf City, 'cause it's two to one, now
Two girls for every boy
And if my woody breaks down on me somewhere on the surf route
(Surf City, here we come)
I'll strap my board to my back and hitch a ride in my wetsuit
(Surf City, here we come)
And when I get to Surf City I'll be shootin' the curl
And checkin' out the parties for a surfer girl
And we're goin' to Surf City, 'cause it's two to one
You know we're goin' to Surf City, gonna have some fun
You know we're goin' to Surf City, 'cause it's two to one
You know we're goin' to Surf City, gonna have some fun, now
Two girls for every
Two girls for every boy
