老歌亂談(1074)Someone Like You

1973,Bob Dylan為電影《Pat Garrett & Billy the Kids》( 中譯:比利小子 ) 寫了一首《Knockin' on Heaven's Door》。1975,英國歌手及詞曲作家Arthur Louis將此曲改編為「雷鬼 ( reggae )」曲風,並找了「吉他之神」Eric Clapton共同參與。熟知就在此改編版單曲發行的一週前,Clapton推出了以Louis版再經自己詮釋的版本,而B面則為此首由Arthur Louis作詞作曲的《Someone Like You》。受到了Clapton的「互打」,Arthur Louis的版本當然有受到影響,還好最後在多方的關注 ( 包含日本 ) 之下,仍攀登上「國際排行榜」的第6名。



Eric Clapton也稱得上是個「泡妞大王」,與之有緋聞關係的女人前後共計46人,其中最讓人樂道的是他曾表白喜歡好友---披頭合唱團的主奏吉他手George Harrison的老婆Pattie Boyed,並為此痛苦到自我放逐過一陣子,皇天不負癡情漢,Patti在1975還真的和Eric在一起,1979結婚,1988離異。

Patti & Georgr


Patti & Eric


此曲為Arthur Louis所寫,應該和Pattie Boyed沒啥關係,但由歌詞內容,又適逢和Patti的關係進展,想必Eric Clapton唱來是另有一番滋味在心頭。雖為翻唱,個人覺得,Eric詮釋此曲較原唱Arthur為佳。

I got up this morning and fell out of bed
Trying to make it to the door.
The wind was high, I didn't have much time,
Trying to find a man to score.
And then you came up on the other side
To brighten up my day.
I knew right away
That this could be my day.
Someone like you
Could make me change my ways.
Someone like you
Could turn the nights into days.
There you were, standing
On a crowded street.
You looked so good, though the air was bad,
Walking through the fog.
Someone like you
Could make me change my ways.
Someone like you
Could turn the nights into days.
I want to thank you, thank you now
For getting me back on my feet again.
I want to thank you, thank you now
For getting me back on my feet again.
Someone like you
Could make me change my ways.
Someone like you
Could turn the nights into days.
Someone like you
Could make me change my ways.
Someone like you
Could turn the nights into days.
