老歌亂談(578)Gentle On My Mind



美國民謠、鄉村及藍草 ( bluegrass ) 編曲音樂家John Hartford,不僅擅長演奏小提琴及班鳩琴,同時也以寫詼諧的歌詞和獨特的唱腔著稱。John Hartford自陳寫這首《Gentle On My Mind》的靈感是來自於電影《齊瓦哥醫生》,而且是看完影片後在30分鐘內就完成了歌詞。1967,此曲隨著Hartford的第二張專輯《Earthwoeds & Music》一起推出,雖成績普普,卻引起了歌手Glen Campbell的注意。

Glen Campbell也在1967翻唱此曲,看來成績也不怎麼樣,在鄉村和熱門排行榜只分別為30及62名。但此曲在1968卻拿下了4座葛萊美獎:
Glen Campbell--「最佳鄉村男歌手」「最佳鄉村唱片」(共同製作人)
John Hartford --「最佳民謠歌手」「最佳鄉村歌曲」(寫作者)


Campbell的版本在電台播放超過5百萬次,他也將此曲用做他在電視的綜藝節目「The Glen Campbell Goodtime Hour」的主題曲 ( 1969─1972 )。此曲其它的翻唱者包含有也是影星的Dean Martin、Patti Page、Aretha Franklin與眾多大牌歌手等。

2014,美國鄉村音樂團體The Band Perry,為Glen Campbell的紀實電影《Glen Campbell:I'll Be Me》錄唱此曲的電影原聲帶,該團體所詮釋的版本,在2015為他們奪得了一座「最佳鄉村二重唱或團體」的葛萊美獎。






有人認為,在所有翻唱此曲的女生中,無人能及Tammy Wynette。


It's knowin' that your door is always open
And your path is free to walk
That makes me tend to leave my sleepin' bag rolled up
And stashed behind your couch

And it's knowin' I'm not shackled by forgotten words and bonds
And the ink stains that have dried upon some lines
That keeps you in the back roads
By the rivers of my memory and keeps you ever gentle on my mind

It's not clingin' to the rocks and ivy
Planted on their columns now that bind me
Or somethin' that somebody said because
They thought we fit together walkin'

It's just knowin' that the world will not be cursin' or forgivin'
When I walk along some railroad track and find
That you're movin' on the back roads
By the rivers of my memory and for hours you're just gentle on my mind

Though the wheat fields and the coal mines and the junkyards
And the highways come between us
And some other woman's cryin' to her mother
'Cause she turned and I was gone

I still might run in silence tears of joy might stain my face
And the summer sun might burn me till I'm blind
But not to where I cannot see
You walkin' on the back roads by the rivers flowin' gentle on my mind

I dip my cup of soup
Back from some gurglin', cracklin' cauldron in some train yard
My beard a roughenin' coal pile
And a dirty hat pulled low across my face

Through cupped hands 'round a tin can
I pretend to hold you to my breast and find
That you're wavin' from the back roads
By the rivers of my memory ever smilin', ever gentle on my mind

男女版本都不錯!
但我喜歡男版的多一些
女版的歌聲乍聽以為是Skeeter Davis呢
就是唱世界末日的女歌手

好驚人也好羨慕! 半小時就能編寫好歌詞
想當年一首兒歌花了我老半天才寫好^^

對於寫詩或是寫歌詞的一些文藝創作者來說
只要靈感一來
的確是可以在短時間一氣呵成
但通常也是在歌紅了之後才說出來炫耀的吧!

由於Skeeter Davis的《The End Of The World》太經典
我一直都沒想要貼 ( The Animals的《The House Of The Rising Sun》情況也是一樣 )
倒是有點想介紹她和Bobby Bare合唱的《A Dear John Letter》
想說現在的年輕人
恐不太瞭解這首歌已成為一個典故了
