老歌亂談(1049)Wild Ones

此曲收錄在美國鄉村歌手Waylon Jennings於1994發行的專輯《Waymore's Blue ( Part II )》中。1996,Jennings對專輯中的幾首歌曲作出了說明,這首《Wild Ones》的背景是讓他想起70年代時,和Willie Nelson及妻子Jessi Colter如何的在Nashville奮戰,堅持誠實面對自己的音樂,最後終於憾動了長久以來對於非傳統鄉村音樂的不同等級的對待,而使得「outlaw country (非法鄉村)」佔有了一席之地。


Willie Nelson & Waylon Jennings

一般咸信,「outlaw country」這個名詞的由來,應是出自於Waylon Jennings在1972發行的同名專輯的歌曲《Ladies Love Outlaws》( 作者為Lee Clayton ),又搭配了先前已發行的另首《Good Hearted Woman》,此兩首歌曲所傳達的音樂風格、形式,逐漸地發展出鄉村音樂的次主流,也就是「outlaw country」。

而真正奠定「非法鄉村」音樂地位的,是1976由Waylon Jennings、Willie Nelson、Jessi Colter及Tompall Glaser合出的專輯《Wanted!》,此專輯不僅在鄉村榜奪得冠軍,在流行榜也拿下第10名,唱片大賣超過100萬張並獲得「白金唱片」的認證。Jennings從當初為了作出自己風格的鄉村歌曲,受到了多數唱片公司的排擠、打壓,甚至一度還萌生退休之意,至此,終於可以揚眉吐氣了,Jennings應可說是「outlaw country」真正的先趨者。

Straight out of nowhere
And a little bit out of our minds
We were courting disaster
With one foot over the line
It was one for the show
And two for ol' Shorty and me
We were the wild ones
We had the town up a tree

We were the wild ones
The ones they couldn't control
We were survivors
Good hearts, body and soul
We were the winners
Cause we didn't know we could fail
We were the wild ones
And we had the world by the tail

She was a lady
When a lady wasn't easy to be
Hangin' in limbo
She started hangin' with me
We were the music
Cause we had a song we could sing
We were the wild ones
And we had the world on a string

We were the wild ones
The ones they couldn't control
We were survivors
Good hearts, body and soul
We were the winners
Cause we didn't know we could fail
We were the wild ones
And we had the world by the tail

We were the wild ones
The ones they couldn't control
We were survivors
Good hearts, body and soul
We were the winners
Cause we didn't know we could fail
We were the wild ones
And we had the world by the tail

We had the world by the tail.
