大顆的芭樂:〈Total Eclipse of the Heart〉by Bonnie Tyler


沙啞中帶點狂野的嗓音,是Bonnie Tyler的註冊商標,1975年出道的她,推出過15張專輯,以及一堆數不清的「精選輯」。

其中最成功的一張,是1983年的《Faster Than the Speed of Night》,由知名的製作人Jim Steinman製作。在美國拿到第四名,在英國拿到第一,而且是英國專輯榜史上第一個女性藝人登上冠軍的。

說起Jim Steinman,這位製作人的風格非常鮮明,將歌劇融入搖滾中,單曲時間動輒超過五分鐘,且編曲龐大,需要夠power的vocal才能駕馭自如。他有一男一女兩大愛將,女就是Bonnie Tyler,男則是Meat Loaf(有空再來談談這位搖滾「巨」將)。

回到〈Total Eclipse of the Heart〉這首歌,在英、美、加、澳等英語市場,都拿下冠軍,在顛峰時每天銷售六萬張,最後總計將近六百萬張,是Jim Steinman和Bonnie Tyler各自的最佳商業作品。

先聽幾個翻唱版本。

1994年翻唱的是Nicki French,走舞曲風。

2001年Jan Wayne翻唱,也是搞成舞曲。

Westlife也翻唱過,但感覺很娘。

原始MTV版

1984年Live版

1984年在Grammy現場演唱版

這首歌讓人百聽不厭,實在是大顆又滿意的芭樂啊!

歌詞

(Turn around)
Every now and then I get a little bit lonely,
and you’re never coming around.
(Turn around)
Every now and then I get a little bit tired,
of listening to the sound of my tears.
(Turn around)
Every now and then I get a little bit nervous,
that the best of all the years have gone by.
(Turn around)
Every now and then I get a little bit terrified,
and then I see the look in your eyes.
(Turn around bright eyes)
Every now and then I fall apart,
(Turn around bright eyes)
Every now and then I fall apart…
And I need you now tonight,
And I need you more than ever,
And if you’ll only hold me tight,
We’ll be holding on forever…
And we’ll only be making it right,
Cause we’ll never be wrong,
together we can take it to the end of the line,
Your love is like a shadow on me all of the time,
I don’t know what to do,
and I’m always in the dark,
We’re living in a powder keg,
and giving off sparks..
I really need you tonight,
Forever’s gonna start tonight,
Forever’s gonna start tonight…
Once upon a time I was falling in love,
But now I’m only falling apart.
There’s nothing I can do,
A total eclipse of the heart…
Once upon a time there was light in my life,
But now there’s only love in the dark.
Nothing I can say.
A total eclipse of the heart..
(Turn around)
Every now and then I get a little bit restless,
and I dream of something wild.
(Turn around)
Every now and then I get a little bit helpless,
and I’m lying like a child in your arms.
(Turn around)
Every now and then I get a little bit angry,
and I know I’ve got to get out and cry.
(Turnaround)
Every now and then I get a little bit terrified,
but then I see the look in your eyes.
(Turn around bright eyes)
Every now and then I fall apart,
(Turn around bright eyes)
Every now and then I fall apart..
And I need you now tonight,
And I need you more than ever,
And if you’ll only hold me tight,
We’ll be holding on forever…
And we’ll only be making it right,
Cause we’ll never be wrong,
together we can take it to the end of the line,
Your love is like a shadow on me all of the time,
I don’t know what to do,
and I’m always in the dark,
We’re living in a powder keg,
and giving off sparks..
I really need you tonight,
Forever’s gonna start tonight,
Forever’s gonna start tonight…
Once upon a time I was falling in love,
But now I’m only falling apart.
There’s nothing I can do,
A total eclipse of the heart…
Once upon a time there was light in my life,
But now there’s only love in the dark.
Nothing I can say.
A total eclipse of the heart..
(Turn around bright eyes)
Every now and then I fall apart,
(Turn around bright eyes)
Every now and then I fall apart..
And I need you now tonight,
And I need you more than ever,
And if you’ll only hold me tight,
We’ll be holding on forever.
And we’ll only be making it right,
Cause we’ll never be wrong,
Together.we can take it to the end of the line
Your love is like a shadow on me all of the time.
I don’t know what to do,
and I’m always in the dark.
We’re living in a powder keg and giving off sparks.
I really need you tonight,
Forever’s gonna start tonight,
Forever’s gonna start tonight..
Once upon a time I was falling in love,
But now I’m only falling apart..
Nothing I can do,
A total eclipse of the heart..
Once upon a time there was light in my life,
But now there’s only love in the dark.
Nothing I can say,
A total eclipse of the heart…
A total eclipse of the heart…
Turn around bright eyes..
Turn around bright eyes,
Turn around..
