UncleRay | 16th May 2009 | 我聽的歌- 歐西 | (522 Reads)

要數80年代最出色的黑人男歌手,我個人認為除了Michael Jackson Prince外,還有Lionel Richie。他創作了不少經典流行曲,曾經有連續13首歌曲打入了top 10流行榜的驕人成績,當中有五首更是攀上冠軍位置。

 

Picture

 

Lionel在三月份推出了新轉輯” Just Go”,這是繼06年的”Coming Home”後最新錄音室製作,亦是他個人第14張唱片。我在網上看過一些對這唱片的評論,給它的評價都不是太好,認為Lionel的音樂過時老套。不過,我把唱片由頭到尾聽過數篇,感覺卻並不是太差。當中數首歌曲仍能帶給我感動,不知這是否因為我是屬於已out的一族?

 

唱片內充滿了Lionel拿手的動人情歌,有喜有悲。多首歌曲旋律動人和十分容易入耳,配上歌者溫暖動人,千錘百鍊,情感綻放的歌聲,這是絕對適合和情人一起聆聽的唱片。我覺得頓時會讓彼此間的羅曼蒂克感覺升溫。

 

唱片首曲”Forever”是一首up tempo的中快版歌曲。旋律悅耳,一個不錯的熱身作。”Just Go””Forever And A Day“找來了R&B新貴Akon合作(featuring)。前者有些熱帶懶洋洋和舒暢的感覺,後者則是充滿熱鬧動感節奏,讓人精神一振。不過其實二人間的化學作用不太明顯,不看唱片小冊子我也不會留意Akon的存在。”Good Morning” “Through My Eyes” “I’m In Love”等等都是動人的抒情小品。

 

“Think Of You”“Pastime”是唱片中我自己偏愛的兩曲。二者同有動聽旋律,但最主要吸引我的原因是它們有著簡單卻感人的歌詞。我想這是成為經典情歌的重要元素。

 

今年六月便年屆60歲的Lionel,在音樂上大概很難再有創新。年輕一代對他認識不深又或沒興趣,聽他音樂的都會是他一貫的支持者。雖然如此,只要他仍能唱出漂亮的歌曲,我想對他的樂迷來說那便足夠。

LYRICS 

Girl I know I been busy didn’t get to talk
But don’t let your head play them games with your heart
It’s been a little crazy doing what I do
But I just can’t wait to get up with you

I know it’s been hard, me not being there
Baby I don’t want you thinking that I really don’t care
And I know that you’re feeling like I’m being unfair
But your love is with me everywhere

When I dream I think of you, breathe I think of you
All day I think of you give all my love to you and only you
Swear it’s true, all I do is think of you
When I pray I think of you, far away I think of you
All day I think of you, my heart belongs to you and only you
Yes it’s true, all I do is think of you

Always say I love you before I go to sleep
If I die before I wake then I’ll take your love with me
Every second I’m away from you feels like misery
Cause I know where I really wanna be

I know it’s been hard, me not being there
Baby I don’t want you thinking that I really don’t care
And I know that you’re feeling like I’m being unfair
But your love is with me everywhere

What do you do when you love someone so much
You’d do almost anything just for one touch
Try to make an excuse just to get away
That’s the way that I feel about you baby
When I leave do you know what I go through
It makes me cry every time cause I miss you
And I hope you feel the same way too
Cause all I do is think of you

LYRICS 

Baby would it be too much, if I told you that I’m in love?
Life has never been better, we are closer than ever
Baby would it be alright, if I took a bit of your time
To tell you my little secret, promise that you will keep it

If I was ruler for a day and there were things that I could change
I wouldn’t change a thing…that’s how much you mean

You’re my favorite pastime and I’m so happy you’re mine
We have come so far ya know, but there’s still farther we could go
You’re my favorite pastime and baby you make me smile
With the happiness you bring…it makes me wanna sing

[ Lionel Richie Lyrics are found on www.songlyrics.com ]
Baby would it make you scared, if I said I want to be there
To hold you through all the bad times and guide you back to the sunshine
Cuz baby it would make me cry to not have you in my life
How could I go on breathing when you’re the air that I’m needing

If I could have my every wish and there were things that I could switch
I wouldn’t switch a thing…that’s how much you mean

Oh when I look at cha I see the future
That’s happy ever after…we’ll make it work
And though I may not always please you, I’ll never grieve you
You lift me up when I down so happy that I’ve found you

除了以上幾位外,Stevie Wonder都係一個唔錯黑人歌手。

sw都好出名下,不過好似沒有這幾位在80s咁厲害。
