关于Some Guys Have All The Luck

早上听MGMT的Kids时候,不知怎么想到了Robert Palmer,很想再听听他唱的Some Guys Have All The Luck。上学的时候买了他的“addictions”双张打口,总是一遍遍的听这首歌。今天才知道,Robert Palmer已经在2003年心脏病去世了。

这里有一篇文章,写了关于Some Guys Have All The Luck的历史。

这首歌由Jeff Fortgang所写,但除了这首歌,并未发现作者写过其他有名的歌。最早由灵魂乐团The Persuaders在1973年发行,后来在雷鬼乐圈里流行,最早的版本是1974年,这首歌雷鬼乐的版本最多。

Robert Palmer所唱的歌大部分都是自己写的,为什么会唱这首歌呢?那张专辑册子里,正好有一段解释,抄上来:”I was working with Moon Martin when I wrote Some Guys.I played it to him and then a few days later he came in and he’d just heard someone singing it in the studio across the road,which seemed impossible since I haven’t finished it yet myself!What happened was that I must have heard sublminally,I think it was on Australian radio,and just hadn’t realised.A further coincidence was that Jack Nuber,who mixed the song,had produced it for an 18-year-old jamaican kid called Junior Tucker.In the end the only thing I remebered was the title line.the rest is very different from the many versions that were subsequntly recorded.”

大意是他把自己写的一首新歌给他朋友听,几日后,他朋友告诉他,在街对面的录音室里听到有人唱这首歌,他感到不可思议,自己还没写完这首歌呢。可能他以前在收音机里听过这首歌,已经忘了,可潜意识里只记得这首歌的标题,这也是为什么Robert Palmer的版本和其他的版本歌词只有两句一样,原歌词是孤单男郁闷的倾诉。肯能也因为如此,这首歌才很有Robert Palmer自己的风格。

两年后,Rod Stewart也翻唱了这首歌,使这首歌更流行。可在这么多版本中还是最喜欢Robert Palmer的版本。
