Swing Jazz歌曲分享系列之三 Corner Pocket

前言

       Corner Pocket是作者很喜歡的一首歌曲,旋律輕快並富含大量音樂節奏性的好東西在裡頭,原先以為這首歌就只是一首純音樂的歌曲,整理之後才發現原來它還有歌詞版本,歌詞本身也寫得很棒,真的越來越愛這首歌了!!目前在跳舞時最常聽到的版本有兩種,一種是Count Basie的原始版本,另一種是Hot Sugar Band的演奏版本,作者個人更喜歡Hot Sugar Band版本一些,因為副歌經過重新編排變得更為豐富,下面會有各版本統整可以自己體會每個版本的差異性。

I used to be so fancy free
以前我活的很自由
But really lonesome as could be
但真的很寂寞

Till one lucky day, you came my way

I never knew what love was all about
過去我從來不知道愛是什麼

Then, what d’ya know, you made it so
然而,你知道嗎? 你做到了

I never knew what love was all about

UNTIL I MET YOU

Once we start, then we’ll never part
當我們開始, 那麼我們永遠不會分開

In my blue life
在我憂鬱的人生中

No one at all would even care if I cried
當我哭泣時沒有人會在意
(Hurtin’ inside)
In my new life

I’m walkin’ tall, I got a feelin’ of pride

Glowin’ inside

It’s cherry pink
這是櫻桃紅

And apple blossom white
和蘋果花的白色
That’s right – pink and white
這就對了 – 粉紅色和白色

I be tellin’ y’ right
我告訴你”對”

Who’da’ ever believed a guy that
曾經相信他

Hustled pool was such a romantic
推進泳池也是一種浪漫

He really was frantic
他真的很瘋狂

He pursue_________d me
他追求我

Chalkin’ his cue
粉碎他的暗示

Lemme’ tell y’ now, without a doubt
讓我告訴你,不要遲疑

Gettin’ ready for a little romance
準備開始一點浪漫

The rustic romeo pursued me
像樸實的羅密歐追求我

Now is his chance
現在是他的機會

He showed me such emotion that I finally
最終他向我傾述感情

That’s what t’do if he’s got some eyes – – – – –
Took a notion to give in
F’Hittin on you

An’ when y’ took the notion
Love is a game
Did you imagine his emotion
Everybody plays it the same
Ever was the kind t’ go f’coolin’
It’s a game – y’ play by the rules

Did ‘ja think he might be jivin’ and only foolin’
Tho y’ know the winners are victims
Or did you appraise it as real?
An’ losers are fools

Did you go f’what came?
Now that you’re his
Or was love in the game?
He c’n put his mind t’tending t’ biz
If love is the answer
‘Cause thats how it is –
Then you’ll never, ever be quite the same
When y’ find love, that’s the one thing
I’m sure you know that that’s so
You’ll be sure of –

Well I dropped m’heart now an’ bent it
Said a few sincere words
Never dreamin’ that I meant it

To tell you the truth, I never
Ever really meant to begin it

How can you explain true love?
How can I disdain true love?
Love is real exciting it’s so exciting – That when it
Turned me around I didn’t feel like fighting

It wouldn’t a caught me
Except when I saw you I was surer than sure
This really couldn’t be
But what’y-know
It really was so!
I’m ready f’settlin’ right down
No more runnin’ around

And that’s the truth, really the truth
Really ain’t puttin’ on no act
Really a fact
Really, this ain’t no time f’jivin’
‘Cause what I’m tellin’ y’ really comes
Right from this heart of mine
An’ lemme tell y’ there’s an awful lot o’
Sacrifice t’ lay it on the line

What’s this thing people call love
Something nobody has too much of
This game all misunderstand, but play it

One thing’s sure; Love’s what I’m in
Unloose cupid’s bow, let it begin
That’s it! Let that madness start!
There goes my heart!

It’s got me stumblin’, it’s got me mumblin’
I’m like a ship without a rudder
A car without wheels
Unless y’ feel it, I can’t reveal it
Y’ gotta have it happen to y’
T’ know how it feels

One thing’s sure; Love has got me
I’m as certain as certain can be
I’m yours till eternity

From the day that we met
When you showed on the set
I remember it yet
I was knocked out

I took one look at you
And what else could I do
Love walked in and I knew
There was no doubt
No, no doubt

I love you, yes, I sure do, yes, I love you
Yes, you know it
I know that you knew from the start

Now we two become one
And we’ll make it together

I never really knew what love was all about
UNTIL I MET YOU

I never really knew what love was all about
UNTIL I MET YOU

Good – – – Shot!

Corner Pocket音樂版本彙整

  1. Count Basie是最原始的版本,但該樂團還是有與其它樂手合作因此有不少版本。
  2. 與Duke Ellington合作的版本,聽起來真的不是很和諧,也許當初製作就是故意這樣安排。
  3. The Manhattan Transfer就是有加Vocal的版本,歌唱版本一般稱歌名為Until I Met You
  4. Cal State LA Jazz Orchestra是Corner Pocket目前聽到歌曲速度最慢的版本。
  5. Youtube搜尋Corner Pocket有很多樂團翻奏的版本,有興趣可以自己去聽看看差異。
  6. 最後請多多支持Hot Sugar Band版本!! XD
