老歌亂談(579)Sweet Nothin's



此曲為Ronnie Self所作,這位老兄本身也是位歌手,但個人的演唱事業並不成功,卻在寫歌方面頗具天份。除了這首《Sweet Nothin's》,Brenda Lee最具知名的代表作《I'm Sorry》,亦為出自其手。可惜Ronnie Self的音樂事業被嚴重的酗酒及難自控的暴力行為所害,最後只享壽43歲。



Brenda Lee是由童星起家,由於個子小,演唱時還需腳墊木箱才能夠得到麥克風 ( 長大後也才約145公分 )。此首《Sweet Nothin's》於1959推出後,獲得告示牌熱門榜第4名。而更重要的是,此曲也是Brenda Lee首度打入英國排行榜的歌曲 ( 同樣為 No. 4 ),也因此使得她晉身為「國際級」的歌星。

Sweet Nothings的解釋是「romantic and loving talk」,翻成中文趨近於「甜言蜜語」( 或「情話綿綿」?)。歌曲的最後很有趣,女主角坐在屋子的前廊,大概是想等看男友是否會出現,結果她母親將前廊的燈關掉,並說:Come in darlin',that's enough for tonight。呵呵呵呵!^^




Uh huh, Honey
Alright

My baby whispers in my ear
Mmmm sweet nothin's
He knows the things I like to hear
