200902231757THE POLICE ~ Every Breath You Take

以史汀為首,叱吒80年代搖滾樂壇的警察合唱團,成軍僅短短7年,卻拿下5座葛萊美和兩座全英音樂獎,名列「搖滾名人堂」,在全球締造超過5000萬張唱片銷量。史汀,史都華柯普蘭,安迪桑瑪,這3個音樂人在龐克聲浪席捲樂壇的1970年代末期組成警察合唱團,他們將龐克樂的狂放與衝勁,雷鬼搖擺樂的熱情與活力,爵士樂的瀟灑與隨性巧妙揉合,改變了流行搖滾樂的面貌。1977年成軍的警察合唱團,以『Reggatta de Blanc』、『Zenyatta Mondatta』、『Ghost In The Machine』、『Synchronicity4張專輯,連續勇奪英國金榜冠軍王座。THE POLICE重新定義了流行搖滾樂的價值,媒體推崇為「1980年代新浪潮音樂最具冒險性格的先鋒」,可說是實至名歸。『Every Breath You Take』這首歌則曾蟬聯全美熱門單曲榜8週冠軍。(以上資料來自博客來音樂館)

Every breath you take   The Police

Every move you make
Every bond you break
Every step you take
I'll be watching you

Every single day
Every word you say
Every game you play
Every night you stay
I'll be watching you

Oh can't you see
You belong to me
How my poor heart aches
With every step you take
( With every breath you take )

Every move you make
Every vow you break
Every smile you fake
Every claim you stake
I'll be watching you

Since you've gone I've been lost without a trace
I dream at night, I can only see your face
I look around but it's you I can't replace
I feel so cold and I long for your embrace
I keep crying baby, baby, please

你的每一次呼吸   警察合唱團

妳的一舉一動
妳掙脫的每一個束縛
妳踏出的每一步
我都在注視著妳

每一天
妳說的每一個字
玩的每一個遊戲
留下來的每一夜
我都在注視著妳

難道妳還不明白
妳就是屬於我
我可憐的心在抽痛
隨著妳離去的每一步
(隨著妳的每一次呼吸)

妳的一舉一動
妳違背的每個誓言
妳偽裝的每個笑容
妳的每一個聲明
我都在注視著妳

妳離去後,我茫然無依
夜裡入夢,只夢見妳的容顏
我環目四顧,全是揮不去的妳
我全身冰冷,渴望妳的擁抱
我不停的哭泣,寶貝,求求妳........


除了低音貝斯演奏家出版的個人專輯,很少有歌曲是以貝斯做為主奏樂器。但警察合唱團的 Every breath you take 這首歌就是以貝斯支撐起整首歌曲,而且大受歡迎,在一九八三年的告示牌排行榜上,它曾經蟬連八週冠軍,並成為年終排行的總冠軍。

這首歌的作者,是警察合唱團的靈魂人物 Sting史汀,也是該團的貝斯手。他表示,這首歌的寫作靈感源自於當時美國雷根政府為了對抗蘇聯共產政權所提出的星戰計畫,這個擴充軍備的計畫一旦通過實施,大氣層將充斥著各式間諜衛星與殺手衛星,以監控世界各國地表上的軍事活動,即使是一般老百姓的活動亦將是無所遁形。在那個時候,他個人的婚姻生活也出了一點問題,因而寫下了這首歌。

這首歌推出後風行全球,影響了世界各國流行音樂的創作方向,國內當時的玉女歌手楊林就有一首歌,明顯的受到 Every breath you take 這首歌曲的「啟發」。90年代的西洋樂壇,饒舌音樂逐漸成為主流,Puff Daddy 吹牛老爹也曾在一九九七年改編這首歌,成為另一首暢銷單曲" I'll be missing you ",證明好歌果然不會寂寞。

The Police ~ DE DO DO DO, DE DA DA DA 

Don't think me unkind, words are hard to find

They're only check's I've left unsigned

From the banks of chaos in my mind

And when their eloquence escapes me

Their logic ties me up and rapes me

 

De do do do de da da da is all I want to say to you

De do do do de da da da, their innocence will pull me through

De do do do de da da da is all I want to say to you

De do do do de da da da, they're meaningless and all that's true

 

Poets, priests and politicians have words to thank for their positions

Words that scream for your submission

And no-one's jamming their transmission

' Cos when their eloquence escapes you

Their logic ties you up and rapes you

 

De do do do de da da da is all I want to say to you

De do do do de da da da, their innocence will pull me through

De do do do de da da da is all I want to say to you

De do do do de da da da, they're meaningless and all that's true

 

De do do do de da da da is all I want to say to you

De do do do de da da da, their innocence will pull me through

De do do do de da da da is all I want to say to you

De do do do de da da da, they're meaningless and all that's true
