藍心湄《上緊發條》以為在過《去年聖誕》

其實國語歌壇長久以來存在著翻唱與抄襲問題,七○年代由於與日本斷交的關係,禁止輸入日本曲,很多翻唱日本曲多會隨便取個筆名或用「佚名」兩字矇混,但到了八○年代,國語歌壇開始重視創作,這樣情況也逐漸少見了。只是有時為了方便不用取得授權,只消改了幾個音符,便當做自己的創作曲,這樣的情形也屢見不鮮。
 
提到八○年代最重要的偶像組合,「渾」(Wham,或譯「轟」)絕對記上一筆,這個由喬治麥可與安德魯所組的英國二重唱,曾在八○年代前半期風靡全球,甚至還打入美國告示牌,創下三首冠軍曲的佳績。
 
一九八四年更是「渾」的全盛時期,出自他們第二張專輯《炒熱它》(Make it Big)的首支單曲《當你走時叫醒我》,靈感來自安德魯寫給父母的一張便條,上頭寫著「Wake me up before you go」,喬治麥可譜曲時多加一個「go」字,就成了後來大家聽到的歌名。該曲一推出後,在英、美都拿下單曲榜冠軍,Wham身價立即炙手可熱。
 
「渾」在一九八四年底推出的《去年聖誕》(Last Christmas)更是紅翻天,雖然碰上強敵Band Aid《他們知道這是聖誕節嗎》(Do They Know Its Christmas),在英國只屈居第二名,但喬治麥可也同時在《他》曲獻唱,形成前兩名歌曲都有他的情況,在當時也創下紀錄。儘管如此,《去年聖誕》銷售依然超過百萬張,高居英國史上未獲冠軍單曲的銷量第一名,隔年聖誕甚至又回升到第六名,八六年仍居第四十五名,成為這二十年來最知名的聖誕應景歌曲。唯一可惜的是,這首歌從未在美國發行單曲,因為渾同時有另一首歌佔據了排行冠軍寶座,那就是《無心的呢喃》(Careless Whisper);倒是該曲的B面曲《Everything She Wants》在一九八五年三月奪下美國告示牌單曲冠軍。
 
這首歌的單曲版與十二吋單曲版,編曲略有不同,十二吋版一開始由一段很柔情的電吉他獨奏,帶出midi所譜出的輕快節奏,至中段則加入聖誕鐘聲,更具佳節歡娛節奏,而單曲版則直接用midi超頭,編曲較為簡單。藍心湄的《上緊發條》則採用了十二吋單曲版的編曲,連一開場的吟唱都如出一轍,要說沒聽過,實在很難令人信服。《夏夜燃燒的夢》曲子也是同樣的情況,令人不禁搖頭也疑惑,當初有「音樂才子」美名的馬爺,是否因為片約纏身而做了取巧的決定?
 
不過,這張《上緊發條》的確鞏固了藍心湄的歌壇地位。她自一九八四年推出首張專輯《濃妝搖滾》後,雖然以動感歌舞廣獲矚目,但銷售成績一直算還好,印象中等到這張專輯問世後,她才算躋身暢銷歌手之林。特別一提的,藍心湄發行此張時也躍上大銀幕,演出虞戡平執導的《台北神話》,該片是盧導繼《搭錯車》後又一力作,改編自真實社會事件,並再度與孫越合作,原本很被看好,但評價與票房均普普,記得當時該片預算破千萬元台幣,但賣座也差不多剛破千萬元,勉強收支打平。
 
Ps.《夏夜燃燒的夢》是我從黑膠上轉拷的,品質並不好,請見諒。
 
《上緊發條》
作詞:連水淼/作曲:馬兆駿
愛要上緊發條 愛要上緊發條
一聲 一聲聲 滴答滴滴答答

愛要上緊發條 愛要上緊發條
讓它天天都叫 永遠不能忘掉

鬧鐘的發條不能鬆 鬆了它就不會歌頌
愛情的腳步不能鬆 鬆了也就不會成功
打電話給我 帶給我一些親切的問候
常寫信給我 讓我知道把你的行蹤掌握


 
Last Christmas
Last Christmas, I gave you my heart
But the very next day, You gave it away
This year, to save me from tears
I'll give it to someone special

Last Christmas, I gave you my heart
But the very next day, You gave it away
This year, to save me from tears
I'll give it to someone special

Once bitten and twice shy
I keep my distance but you still catch my eye
Tell me baby do you recognise me?
Well it's been a year, it doesn't surprise me

(Happy Christmas!) I wrapped it up and sent it
With a note saying "I Love You" I meant it
Now I know what a fool I've been
But if you kissed me now I know you'd fool me again

(Oooh. Oooh Baby)

A crowded room, friends with tired eyes
I'm hiding from you and your soul of ice
My God I thought you were someone to rely on
Me? I guess I was a shoulder to cry on
A face on a lover with a fire in his heart
A man undercover but you tore me apart
Oooh Oooh
Now I've found a real love you'll never fool me again

A face on a lover with a fire in his heart
(Gave you my heart)
A man undercover but you tore me apart
Next year
I'll give it to someone, I'll give it to someone special
special
someone
someone
I'll give it to someone, I'll give it to someone special
who'll give me something in return
I'll give it to someone
hold my heart and watch it burn
I'll give it to someone, I'll give it to someone special
I've got you here to stay
I can love you for a day
I thought you were someone special
gave you my heart
I'll give it to someone, I'll give it to someone
last christmas I gave you my heart
you gave it away
I'll give it to someone, I'll give it to someone
 


《夏夜燃燒的夢》
作詞:/作曲:馬兆駿
清涼的夏天夜晚沙灘
最叫人迷醉的是那心跳聲
只要隨心所欲
何不讓自己奔放在大自然
夏天燃燒少女的夢
搖滾音樂四處播送
為何不來編織一個夏日戀情
讓熱度一直到無限
快快來跳支GOGO
這屬於我們自己的節奏
快快來跳支GOGO
一直到陷入喜悅中
快快來跳支GOGO
這屬於我們自己的節奏
快快來跳支GOGO
哇!夏夜燃燒的夢


 
Wake Me Up Before You Go-Go
You put the boom boom into my heart,
You send my soul sky high when your lovin' starts.
Jitterbug into my brain,
Goes bang bang bang till my feet do the same.

But something's bugging me
Something ain't right
My best friend told me
What you did last night.

Left me sleeping
In my bed.
I was dreaming
But I should've been with you instead.

Wake me up before you go go,
Don't leave me hanging on like a yo-yo.
Wake me up before you go go,
I don't wanna miss it when you hit that high
Wake me up before you go go,
'Cause I'm not planning on going solo.
Wake me up before you go go,
Take me dancing tonite.
I wanna hit that high...

You get the gray skies outta my way,
You make the sun shine brighter than Doris Day.
Turn a bright spark into a flame,
My beats per minute never been the same.

'Cause you're my lady,
I'm your fool.
Makes me crazy
When you act so cruel.

C'mon baby,
Let's not fight.
We'll go dancing
And everything will be alright.

Cuddle up baby,
Move in tight.
We'll go dancing tomorrow night.

It's cold out there
But it's warm in bed.
They can dance,
We'll stay home instead.
