[天籁之音] 带你走进奇妙的乡村之旅

带你走进奇妙的乡村之旅

1979年,肯尼继续推出「Kenny」专辑,这次的歌曲中,「Coward of theCounty」的戏剧性更强。它描述一个男子因为喜欢争强斗很,终於死在监狱中。临死之前,他感叹自己一生的错误,特别叮咛儿子,千万不要重蹈覆辙,要远离是非之地,人家打你的左脸,把右脸也给他打,并不代表你懦弱。儿子奉行父亲的教诲,但是却被乡里嘲笑,说他是全镇上最没种的懦夫,他都默默的承受。有一天,朋友跑来告诉他,说是他的女友在酒吧打工,被三个坏蛋欺负了。他终於忍无可忍,拿下墙上父亲的遗照,对父亲说,我一辈子听您的话,但有些时候,我还是得作个男子汉的。他跑到酒吧,大家仍然嘲笑他,可是,当他把门关起来的时候,大家笑不出来了。他把那三个坏蛋,打得满地找牙,多年来的怨气,全部宣泄出来,从此再也没有人赶嘲笑他了。这首歌曲获得三周乡村排行的冠军,也成为肯尼罗杰斯在乡村排行成绩最好的代表作。

在「Kenny」专辑之後,肯尼罗杰斯想到了当年在「New ChristyMinstrels」合唱团认识的老伙伴金卡恩丝。合唱团解散之後,团员们各奔前程,金卡恩丝成为独唱歌手,在1975年推出的同名个人专辑「金卡恩丝(KimCarnes)」虽然销路并不算非常理想,但是获得了相当高的评价,除了她的歌唱表现之外,她和丈夫戴夫艾林顿(DaveEllington)共同展现的作曲才华也是功不可没的,因此她的作曲功力受到了唱片界的重视,许多大牌歌手纷纷请她作曲。於是,肯尼罗杰斯邀请这对夫妻共同为他写歌,包办了专辑「Gideon」所有的词曲,更特别请她出马共同演唱其中的「Don't Fall in Love with aDreamer」,结果在流行与乡村的排行榜都打进前五名,造成了轰动,使得大家都开始注意到这位歌声特殊的女歌手。

1980年,肯尼罗杰斯应邀为电影「都市牛仔(UrbanCowboy)」所演唱的插曲「Love the WorldAway」再度造成轰动後,他又开始追求新的合作伙伴。在求新求变的前提下,他突发奇想,决定找“海军准将(Commodores)”合唱团的灵魂人物莱昂内尔李奇(LionelRichie)替他写歌、帮他制作。在一般人看来,他们两人的合作简直是不可思议的,因为一个来自乡村、一个来自蓝调,风格南辕北辙。不过,事实上两人对於彼此的风格都不是完全陌生的。肯尼罗杰斯来自美国南方,他从小就接触到许多黑人的音乐,甚至还是听著雷查尔斯(RayCharles)和山姆库克(SamCooke)等黑人歌手的音乐长大的。至於莱昂内尔李奇呢,也曾经尝试过乡村风味的作品。由他谱写、“海军准将”唱红的「风帆在上(SailOn)」就是一个很好的例子,由於表现突出,他甚至还因而被乡村音乐协会认可为会员。在他的主导之下,“海军准将”的歌路从来没有被定型,而这正是肯尼罗杰斯希望达成的境界。

当时,“海军准将”正打算要展开一连串的巡回演唱,不过由於他们的鼓手发生了车祸,行程只好延後,也让莱昂内尔李奇突然有空闲了。透过出版公司的媒介,肯尼罗杰斯表明了合作的要求,因此莱昂内尔李奇飞往拉斯维加,去和肯尼见面。他手边正好有两首已经接近完成阶段的歌曲,一首是乡村风味的「Goin'Back toAlabama」,另外一首则是「Lady」。肯尼听了之後大表喜欢,於是两人进入录音间,以八个小时的时间,完成了录音。「Goin' BacktoAlabama」还没有什么问题,但是「Lady」可就不同了。肯尼起先用自己的方式来诠释,可是莱昂内尔李奇却不满意,干脆亲自“教唱”。肯尼也不生气,虚心的学习,跟著“老师”一句一句的唱,结果这首歌除了歌声是肯尼的,呈现出来的却几乎完全是莱昂内尔李奇的风格。

1980年秋天,肯尼罗杰斯推出了「Lady」,立刻造成轰动,在那一年的十一月十五日登上榜首,蝉联六周,并且成为80年代头一首同时打进热门、黑人、乡村与抒情四种排行榜的歌曲,其中的热门、黑人和乡村三个榜,更夺得了冠军,使他成为名符其实的“三冠王”。对於他们两人,这首歌曲都有著非常重大的意义。它是肯尼罗杰斯歌唱生涯中成绩最好的代表作,也是莱昂内尔李奇一次尝试与“海军准将”之外的艺人合作。由於合作愉快,两人成了莫逆之交,肯尼甚至还安排莱昂内尔李奇与自己的经纪人签约,造成了莱昂内尔李奇退出“海军准将”的决定,也让他独立之後有了更杰出的表现。

这张精选集,总共收录了十二首歌曲,代表了以独唱歌手姿态东山再起後的肯尼罗杰斯第一张成绩单。事实上,1980年也是他歌唱事业的颠峰,虽然後来他持续走红到1990年,也继续有其他著名的畅销曲,甚至後来推出的精选歌曲更多、也更齐全,不过始终没有能够超越这张选集所造成的成功。

1、lady

on your night the shining harber
and i love you
you have made me what i am
and i am yours
my love,theres so many ways
i want to say i love you
let me hold you in my arms forever more
you have gone and made me such a fool
i am so lost in your love
and all we belong together
wont you believe in my soul
lady
for so many years i thought
id never find you
you have come into my life and made me whole
forever let me wake to see you
each and every morning
let me hear you whisper softly in my ear
in my eyes i see no one else but you
theres no other love like our love
and yes,oh yes

and beside me is where i want you to be
cause my love, there is something i want you to know

2、Coward of the County
Everyone considered him the coward of the county
He'd never stood one single time to prove the county wrong
His mama named him Tommy, but folks just called him yellow
Something always told me they were reading Tommy wrong.
He was only ten years old when his daddy died in prison
I looked after Tommy, 'cause he was my brother's son
I still recall the final words my brother said to Tommy
"Son my life is over, but yours has just begun".

"Promise me son not to do the things I've done
Walk away from trouble if you can
It won't mean you're weak if you turn the other cheek
I hope you're old enough to understand
Son, you don't have to fight to be a man".
There's someone for everyone, and Tommy's love was Becky
In her arms he didn't have to prove he was a man
One day while he was working, the Gatlin boys came calling
They took turns at Becky (there was three of them).
Tommy opened up the door, and saw Becky crying
The torn dress, the shattered look was more than he could stand
He reached above the fireplace, and took down his daddy's picture
As his tears fell on his daddy's face, he heard this words again.
The Gatlin boys just laughed at him when he walked into the bar room
One of them got up and met him half way cross the floor
When Tommy turned around they said "Hey look old yellow's leaving"
But you could've heard a pin drop when Tommy stopped and locked the door.
Twenty years of crawling were bottled up inside him
He would hold nothing back --he let'em have it all
When Tommy left the bar room, not a Gatlin boy was standing
He said this ones for Becky, as he watched the last one fall
(now hear him say)
"I promised you dad not to do the things you've done
I walk away from trouble when I can
Now please don't think I'm weak I didn't turn the other cheek
And papa I should hope you understand
Sometimes you gotta fight when you're a man".
Everyone considered him the coward of the county.
