老歌亂談(1043) ( You're the ) Devil in Disguise

此曲為貓王Elvis Presley 於1963所發行的歌曲,在告示牌單曲排行榜達到第3名,並獲得銷售50萬張以上「金唱片」的認證。其他在比利時、芬蘭、法國、愛爾蘭、紐西蘭等國家以及亞洲的日本則是冠軍曲。當年在台灣,好像沒什麼權威的西洋歌曲排行榜,卻也是大家熟悉的熱門曲。

此曲首次出現在英國,是在BBC的電視節目「Juke Box Jury」,節目邀請的來賓之一是披頭合唱團的John Lennon,他對此曲投下的票是「a miss」,意思當然就是不看好,而且說「Like Bing Crosby now」,平克勞斯貝是美國資深的歌手,以演唱聖誕歌曲聞名,意為嘲諷這是老掉牙的東東。不過其他英國人和Lennon的看法可不一樣,此曲在一週內亦拿下了英國排行榜的冠軍。



此曲歌詞淺顯易懂,說一個女孩外表言行像是天使,其實是「惡魔」偽裝的,也就是「表裡不一」。現代男女交往,也常認不清對方真正的性格、習慣,待結婚後發現,卻已來不及了,要不就是忍受,要不就是離婚收場。哀哉!

以下刻意另貼De Dixie Aces樂團的版本,女主唱後來另組了Terry White 樂團 ( 台長之前曾貼過好幾次 ),主要是想讓大家看看,其實她當年也還沒有那麼的胖。^^

 

You look like an angel
Walk like an angel
Talk like an angel
But I got wise
You're the devil in disguise
Oh yes you are
The devil in disguise
You fooled me with your kisses
You cheated and you schemed
Heaven knows how you lied to me
You're not the way you seemed
You look like an angel
Walk like an angel
Talk like an angel
But I got wise
You're the devil in disguise
Oh yes you are
The devil in disguise
I thought that I was in heaven
But I was sure surprised
Heaven help me, I didn't see
The devil in your eyes
You look like…
But I got wise
You're the devil in disguise
Oh yes you are
The devil in disguise
You're the devil in disguise
Oh yes you are
The devil in disguise
Oh yes you are
The devil in disguise
