Telephone(Long Distance Love Affair)

Sheena Easton

某一日,不懂发了什么神经,就是为了一个简单的网上论坛查询,我放下手头上的工作,劳心劳力找歌找到三更半夜。最可怜的是,花了好几个小时,到最后竟然连歌名都找不着,真气人。一直以来,我都相当自信,只要听上英文歌曲的一小段,就可以利用搜索引擎找出歌的由来。那一天就是因为这份自信牺牲了宝贵的睡眠时间。接下来,虽然有点后悔自己的愚蠢,但依然没有放弃找出歌曲的名字,一从指定的电台上听见这首歌就好好记下部分的歌词。最终,两个星期后终于给我探出歌名。

谁人的歌那么值得让我如此费劲?原来正是80年代的流行歌后Sheena Easton的名曲之一Telephone或别名Long Distance Love Affair。Sheena Easton对本地人来说并不是很熟悉,特别是新生代,更别说听过她唱的歌。想当年,这位来自苏格兰的歌手在美国是红透半边天,获得两次的Grammy Award,专辑单曲合计共在全球卖了两千万张。这位外表靓丽歌声独特的歌后,唱过不少动听的歌曲,其中15首曾登上过US Billboard Hot 100的前40名。Sheena_Easton有着一双漂亮的眼睛,虽然经常都以冷艳的短发装扮出现,不过还是掩饰不了她的美丽。

Telephone是一首节奏很轻快的歌曲,是Sheena Easton在美国成名后在1983年发布在第四张专辑Best Kept Secret内。这首登上U.S. Billboard Hot 100的第九名,算是很不错的一项成绩;可惜在英国就没这么顺利,表现只是中规中矩。歌曲的MV拍得相当有趣,全程是黑白画面,登场的人物都是一些怪物-科学怪人、钟楼怪人、吸血鬼等。最后甚至还出现金刚英雄救美。

Sheena Easton - Telephone


Telephone(Long Distance Love Affair)
I've been away from you for far too long
Too much chances make my heart go frantic
I wanna tell you what's been goin' on
Operator give me Trans Atlantic
I sit alone as the night goes by
Stare at the phone and wait for your reply

Long, long distance love affair, ooh-oh
I can't find you anywhere, ooh-oh
I call you on the telefone
But you're never home
I gotta get a message to you
I wanna tell you
What I'm going through, ooh-oh

What in the world's comin' over you
How come you're acting like a total stranger
I try to reach you but I can't get through
I got this feeling that my heart's in danger
I got your letter it was perfectly clear
Havin' a ball, and wishin' you are here

Long, long distance love affair, ooh-oh
I can't find you anywhere, ooh-oh
I call you on the telefone
But you're never home
I gotta get a message to you
I wanna tell you
What I'm going through, ooh-oh

Premonition is a funny thing
A familiar kind of pain and easy
Like knowin' when the phone is gonna ring
Too many times and it'll drive you crazy
I hear your echo in the longer hall
Call out your name
But no-one's there at all

Long, long distance love affair, ooh-oh
I can't find you anywhere, ooh-oh
I call you on the telefone
But you're never home

Long, long distance love affair, ooh-oh
I can't find you anywhere, ooh-oh
I call you on the telefone
But you're never home...

我个人认为这首歌并非Sheena Easton最好的歌曲,首名应该属于9 to 5 Morning Train。

MOMO莫莫
是啊,MV有加分。

marytance
听的时候记得喇叭开小一点,录到太大声了。

这么巧,我刚看到MV时,也想起小时候看过。
